MILESTONES AND MEMORIES
This week in 1959, Col Joye and the Joy Boys Oh Yeah Uh Huh became the first local rock song to top the Australian charts. It was also the first number one song to feature a typewriter!

Norman Gunston’s Kiss Army entered the Australian charts this week in 1980.

This week in 1982, Men At Work’s Business As Usual topped the US charts, the start of a 15-week reign.

John Farnham’s Whispering Jack hit number one in Australia this week in 1986. The album spent 25 weeks on top.

Goanna’s Solid Rock entered the charts 36 years ago this week.

Twenty years ago this week, the Mushroom Records’ 25th Anniversary concert was held at the MCG, featuring Kylie, The Angels, and Jimmy Barnes singing with INXS.

Six years ago this week, INXS, playing with Matchbox Twenty in Perth, announced that it would be their final performance.

Powderfinger did their final gig, in Brisbane, this week in 2010.
