Postby camdwntownjohn » Tue Jan 12, 2016 10:29 am

I haven't got all XFM's charts but I've got most of their sales/airplay charts from 1997 to 2000, and their "Music Response" charts from 2002-2006 (based on listeners' votes).
XFM launched on 1st September 1997 but they didn't broadcast a chart on their first Saturday, which was 6th September. So for this week only, this is my own estimate of their most-played records that week:

1. Super Furry Animals - Play It Cool
2. Pierre Henry - Psyche Rock
3. Blur - MOR
4. Radiohead - Karma Police
5. Primal Scream - Burning Wheel
6. The Verve - The Drugs Don't Work (EP)
7. Stereolab - Miss Modular
8. Strangelove - Freak
9. Dues - Little Arithmetics
10. Smashmouth - Walking In The Sun
11. Edwyn Collins - Adidas World
12. Magic Drive - On The Truth
13. Sundays - Summertime
14. Feeder - High
15. Mansun - Closed For Business
16. Rude Club - Locust
17. Bedlam A Go Go - title not known
18. Fountains Of Wayne - Barbara H
19. Pixies - Debaser
20. Cornershop - Sleep On The Left Side
21. Echo And The Bunnymen - I Want To Be There
22. Skinny - Failure
23. You Am I - Mr Milk
24. Beck - Jackass
25. Eels - Your Lucky Day In Hell
26. Group Dogdrill - Lovely Skin
27. Pigeonhead - Battle Flag
28. Seahorses - Love Me And Leave Me
29. Charlatans - Indina Rope Man
30. Marilyn Manson - Tourniquet

The first chart they broadcast was on Saturday 13th September. At first this was on from 13:30 to 15:30 (with Breakers from 13:00) but after Christmas this was altered to 13:00-15:00, with the 'Balls On Saturday' football and music programme starting at the more logical time of 15:00, when the matches kicked off. I couldn't hear the chart every week as I was at football myself, often outside London, but I soon found that you could pick up a copy from XFM's HQ at 97 Charlotte Street (as well as the playlist). Music Week also began publishing the chart.

I can't remember the name of the presenter, but he was Irish and he may have been called McCluskey.

XFM CHART - 13th SEPTEMBER 1997 - Based on sales and XFM airplay.
Records didn't have to be played on XFM to qualify for the chart - an example being Chumbuwumba, which I never heard on the station except in the chart show.
1. The Verve - The Drugs Don't Work
2. Portishead - All Mine
3. Finlay Quaye - Even After All
4. Chumbuwumba - Tubthumping
5. Sundays - Summertime
6. Chemical Brothers - Electrobags
7. Roni Size / Reprazent - Heroes
8. Marilyn Manson - Tourniquet
9. KRS1 - A Friend
10. Stereolab - Miss Modular
11. Cast - Lived The Dream
12. Ocean Colour Scene - Traveller's Tune
13. Super Furry Animals - Play It Cool
14. Beck - Jackass
15. Eels - Your Lucky Day In Hell
16. Dubstar - Cathedral Park
17. Radiohead - Karma Police
18. Smashmouth - Walking In The Sun
19. Blur - Mor
20. Dues - Little Arithmetics
21. Feeder - High
22. Supergrass - Late In The Day
23. Warm Jets - Hurricane
24. Mono - Slimcea Girl
25. Cornershop - Sleep On The Left Side
26. Edwyn Collins - Adidas World
27. Primal Scream - Burning Wheel
28. You Am I - Mr Milk
29. Strangelove - Freak
30. Mansun - Closed For Business
Breakers - Comfort, Green Day, Libido, Oasis.

Thanks for the information. I do remember Deus but I can't type properly.

The chart is described as "compiled by CIN from sales data combined with XFM airplay data provided by Media Research Limited". CIN also compiled the official sales chart at that time, so would have used the same sales data for this chart, but I don't know whether they used sales from the whole of the UK for the XFM chart, or just sales for London where XFM was broadcast.

XFM Top 30 - 20th SEPTEMBER 1997
1 ( 1 ) The Verve - The Drugs Don't Work

I was at a football match at Southend that day and listened to the last half-hour of the chart through my earphones while watching the game.

as you might see, xfm chart follows (more or less) positions from official chart

Sorry, due to the way I've kept the charts, I've got a problem with incomplete charts. I thought I might have the full Top 30s elsewhere, but I'll have to post what I've got. These are quick and easy to post so I'll get a few more on in the next few days.

Sorry for the delay.
I'd forgotten that Sundays record, Many of these records I've rarely heard since, but I was really enjoying them at the time, I heard a lot of the station I was at hoem stidying at that time, and I was appreciating how much broader the music selection was, than on Radio One's 'Evening Session'.

I've checked, and It seems there were vinyl, CD and cassette versions of the 'Bitterest Pill' single but none of them had '5 o'clock hero' on the B-side. I don't think XFM would have been playing an old song regularly, so The Jam's chart entry must have been based on sales. I suspect I may have written down the wrong title. Some other songs, I hadn't written titles against at all and I'm having to look them up now. Things will be easier from 29/11/1997 as I started to pick up XFM's official chart printout.

Fierce Panda releases were often very limited, and usually one-off singles (rather than signing bands to a deal fro several releases ) so that's probably why it re-appeared on Creation.

The next few weeks, I've got very sparse information for. I know I wrote down the original charts on a grid so I'll make a concerted effort this coming weekend to search for that, and if I can't find it, I'll publish the information I've got (including new playlist entries from XFM printouts) then move onto 1998 which I've got on spreadsheets.

I’ve found the charts – to February 1998 anyway. After that I really should have the official Top 30 printouts for the next six months, but I’ve only found the playlists for that period at the moment. Anyway, I’ll put up the 18/10/1997 chart tomorrow and carry on from there. I didn’t record the titles so I have to look these up or refer to the playlists.
Meanwhile, I’ve added the following to the charts already posted:
No. 17 for 27/09/1997
No. 14 for 04/10/1997
No 4 for 11/10/1997.
Breakers for the first two weeks.

07:00 Eric Hodge
10:00 Gary Crowley (still does a three-hour weekly show on BBC Radio London)
13:00 Claire Sturgess (with Ricky Gervais)
16:00 Paul Anderson
Evenings (Monday to Thursday)

21:00 Keith Cameron
23:00 Stephen Merchant (Phone-In)
00:00 John Kennedy (still with Radio X today)

The Stephen Merchant phone-in was dropped after only a week and John Kennedy did 23:00-02:30.

"phenomenon" I meant.
It wasn't getting any airplay on XFM. A bit tuneless as I recall.

25 ( - ) Libido - In My Shadow [I loved this song and others, by this Norwegian band, and saw them in London a few times in the next couple of years]
Never heard of the band, apparently it's written as Libidō,
i can't find this song nowhere on the internet to listen to,
according to Discogs, it wasn't even a single,
but the singles were 4 other songs from the parent album :o :-?
