Historical Big 30 Charts

The Motor City Big 30 Chart is an important historical document in the Drake Radio BOSS Format. Every week from 1967 through the late 70's the weekly CKLW Big 30 chart was released and gathered up by music fans everywhere in The Motor City at local record stores. In 1964 CKLW introduced a weekly printed chart, but discontinued them in 1965 and 1966.

Collectors still covet original copies and many are still traded and sold on ebay and the like. Here's our collection - we'll add to it as we get more. Check in on the Facebook group for new posts daily or photos and audio.

Thanks to our many contributors like Tom Howard, Larry Good, Ray Tessier and Jim Feliciano.
