TOP OF THE POPS

The  links below will take you to the top tunes in each year.   Radio Ceylon in seventies was only a mono broadcast radio station and we were unable to savour stereo effects. But now you can watch the videos in their full glory and listen with top class stereo sound effects. Do use a headphone to listen to maximise your enjoyment.
