Liner Notes

When it came to how popular a band’s music was, it was the charts that told you. It was the charts that determined radio station song lists and how often they changed.

While maybe not quite all of the songs on this record made the charts, even though that’s what the album title hints at, all of the artists were on the charts at one time or another.

So, get ready to hear music makers that were high up in a specific list at one time or another in Volume 180: Hit Makers.
