85,000 Requests and Counting

HRB has played its 85,000th request since the station started in 1984.  The request was played, appropriately enough, during the countdown of the top 150 most requested artists of the decade.

Listeners were asked to pick a number in the chart to play for them, and Emily on Gynae chose number 6, which was Take That.  As a result of picking the special milestone request, she won a prize.  The song played was "Never Forget".

The chart was pplayed throughout the week on HRB culminating in the final 100 in a live 7 hour show on 26 January when Queen was revealed as the number one.
