HRB has once again played out the National Hospital Radio Request Chart, compiled from thousands of requests collected by hospital radio stations around the UK.

The annual chart, produced and presented by Mark Snowden was heard on HRB on 2 February and counted down the top 10 as well as highlighting the songs and artists who were number one at individual stations.

The chart has been running for 10 years and for 9 of those 10 years, including this year, Frank Sinatra "My Way" has been number one.

The chart for 2013 brought a total of 19,676 requests across 25 hospital radio stations. The full top 30 is as follows.  You can find more information and previous years' charts at http://www.requestcharts.org.uk/
