  • Pilot of the Airwaves

    This song, released by Charlie Dore in 1979, reached only 66 in the UK charts but was a big hit in the States, New Zealand and Australia. Overall, it was her biggest hit all round. Does anyone remember it?

    I forgot to mention it was also a big hit in Canada as well.

      On BBC Radio Nottingham in the early 1990s, former weekday lunchtime presenter Jeff Owen used to play the "I've been listening to your show on the radio" part of the song at the start of his programmes, and used to blank out the word "friend" to make it sound as a swear word had been used.
      Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

        A song having a low chart position isn't necessarily an indication of the track's obscurity. This song just happened to be the sixty-sixth best selling single one week in Britain. There could have been singles or albums which reached a higher position at other times despite having sold less copies than it.
