    Yes - what a revelation!

    I'd no idea NME ever compiled a "next 25" underneath their top 50.

    It certainly wasn't in the magazine itself or their chart books.....

    His archive of scans is immense! Recommend to go to his Flickr page - it's enormous!

    Especially great that they published the NME charts for several years! Never knew those were Top 75 too, by the way. Seems like I have a big job to do (again)...

    Thanks for the link. Good site.

    Plenty of interesting scans here - and not just music related....

    Good news - someone has reposted Shane's scans on a new site. They are all displayed even better here.

    David, I sent you an e-mail some time ago pointing to a site where you can get the No. 1 scans. Did you receive it?

    David - thanks for continuing to add scans of various music papers to your website. It's most appreciated. I'm especially loving all the Record Mirror scans.

    You can send a private message, or email me at david@americanradiohistory.com

    (Sorry about the site name... I never imagined that it would grow so big or so international...)

    Tony, I managed to get the missing charts from 1989 elsewhere, so you may not need to bother. But maybe people here would like a copy, so if you're inclined to scan the charts - please do so

    If the files do appear or if someone has them already, I'd be pleased to put them on a page on the www.americanradiohistory.com site for all to view and download.

    Message me here or at david@americanradiohistory.com

    I didn't mean the problem with shanemarais.net - that, I feel, is gone forever. I meant I'm getting the charts I asked for here.

    Well, the problem was with the Network Chart that I asked for. It'm getting there, just received charts up until August 1989, so only about four months left.

    As for the website - it's the one I mentioned in the first post: shanemarais.net But I wasn't referring to it.

    I'm a bit confused. What problem is solved? I've read through the thread several times and can't find what you might be referring to! Also Graham posted that any link leads to a dedicated menu but I can't work out what website he's referring to. Presumably whatever the website is has had the problem solved but I can't work out what the website is!

    Simply copy the scan files as a PDF and then upload them to PDF Archive. It's a free service and they don't take them down. You can also get a PDF Printer for free. It's called PDF24. You download the software and then when you are using any software at all, you go to the print option of that software and instead of your hard copy printer, you select PDF 24 from the menu. It then output's any file as a PDF file.

    You do have to register with PDF archive, but it's free.

    Uploading to a filesharing service is a good idea. Unfortunately not to zippyshare though as for some reason access to the site is blocked to anyone with a UK IP address. The block has been in place for about a month now and surprisingly it appears to be something that zippyshare itself has put in place.

    For part of 1989 and 1990, I did 'Number One's Weekly Chart Commentary.

    I was paid 20 per Week. However, I now regard the Columns as 'Garbage',
    and I am embarrassed by them.

    At the end of 1989 I did various Decade End Lists for them, based on both the
    UK and USA Charts of the 1980's.

    In 1990 they fired me, as I kept being a bit late, in Faxing my Column through.
    They gave me a lecture about how they expected their Staff to be on time...

    It took me Decades to recover from being fired! The shame! The indignity! (LOL),
