The first hit parades were for the sales of sheet music because music lovers played pianos, not records.
The early hit parades were either a Top 8 or Top 10 and it wasn't until Top 40 started in 1958, when 'rotation' radio was introduced. The most popular were played up to 8 times a day speeding up the popularity of stars and the SuperStar was born.

'The Roots of Aussie Rock'


The presentation's mission is to inform the radio listening public of some of the major highlights of the original Rock'n'Roll era 1958 to 1964 in a unique way. It is hosted by Lonnie Lee, a Legend of the era gives it credability and puts a reality and factual spin on the stories.

The aim is to have the series aired in both City and country markets.
