The ShowThe Big Top 40 with itunes
Replacing “Hit40”, The Big Top 40 Show is a new chart proposition which embraces the music download generation. It is the only chart on the radio that the listener can directly influence, making it truly interactive!
The show will form part of an alliance between all major commercial radio groups, in which Global Radio is a major stakeholder.
It will therefore be the biggest commercial radio show in the UK - sitting across radio brands including Heart, Galaxy, Capital Fm, The Hit Music Network, Bauer’s Big City Network, Magic, KISS and GMG’s Real Radio.
The countdown will be based on total iTunes downloads as they stand that day. Reflecting the instant nature of music downloads, there will be a specific focus on the chart 'Top 10' and how these tracks change throughout the show, depending on what the audience is buying.
The presentation style and overall sound of the show will mirror its core values of energetic, exciting and upbeat music radio. Therefore, music interviews will be kept to clips, with the option to listen to the full content online.
