GOOD LUCK ENGLAND IN THE EURO 2020 FINAL AT WEMBLY TONIGHT

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

This is the first time since 30th July 1966 that England Football Team have reached a major final. That was the FIFA World Cup. Tonight is the European Cup.

Below is the TOP 50 for 30th July 1966. A brilliant TOP 50 with lots of what have become classic tracks. 1966 was a fantastic year in music. A few of my all time Top 50 tracks were born here.

Lets hope a good year in football breeds another classic year in music!
