Are there any shows older than Sept 2008? I thought Euro Pop 40 was older than that.

Tim Fisher 20 September 2010 - 12:41pm

Hi Ed.... you raise a good point. There were a number of editions available on the old RNW website, but only for 2007, and these now appear to be largely untraceable. One show still available is:

Hope this may help (a little, at least!).
