In a BBC three-hour special Rob Brydon (Comic Relief chart-topper Uncle Bryn himself) presents an exclusive countdown of the UK's most-heard recordings of the last 75 years.

These are the records that have 'outplayed' all others, not just on the radio but everywhere music is heard in public, from cafes to clubs and from high street to hospital radio.

Music-News.com editor, Marco Gandolfi, joined BBC News to discuss the chart.
