Now I’ve got today’s actual post up I’d like to say hello to any newcomers who’ve arrived via Bob Stanley’s Times article on this project. I see some new faces in the comments boxes already, which is just fantastic – any undertaking like this needs refreshing occasionally. I hope you stick around and wade in to any new entries (as well as restarting debate on old ones, of course).

Also a reminder for old and new alike that next Friday night it’s Club Popular, where we play only #1 hits all night, and next Sunday afternoon (the 4th) we’re invading the Hangover Lounge, at the Lexington in Islington, where Mr Stanley and I will be spinning some of the mellower #1s, and the regular DJs promise “number one themed” sets. Hope to see some of you one or both of those.
