Greg james - Chart Update

Tired of waiting a whole week to find out who the runners and riders are in the Top 40?

Impatient that time, which goes so very quickly nowadays in every other walk of life, still plods along in Chartland at the same speed as it did 30 years ago?

Generally keen on lists and statistics?

Well, help is at hand. From today, Radio 1 has launched a new show called the Chart Update, which is a rundown of where everything in the Top 40 is on a Wednesday, before the full official chart rundown on Sunday.

Look, here it is...

Chart predicters, reset your future-ometers!

    I predict that Tinie Tempah will be number one on Sunday. You read it here first.

    Yeah , I had heard this would be happening months ago , Greg will reveal the mid week chart every Wednesday at 3:30 pm .

    It will provide loads of interest and debate , but part of me wonders if the element of surprise and certain elements of magic will be lost .

    It's like a football match and this is the half-time score .
    Things can change in the second half , but just how drastic will the changes be ?
    Will people stop listening on a SUNDAY , because they have an idea already of how the chart will look ?

    Hopefully this will once and for all STOP Reggie doing that annoying thing on the chart show , encouraging everyone to text in with who is gonna be number 1 , when he already knows ! Radio 1 JUST FOCUS ON THE ARTISTS AND THE MUSIC .

    Let's see what happens . . .

    I can't be expected to read all the threads
