About Us

CHARTWATCH magazine is edited and produced by two chart fanatics, John Hancock and Neil Rawlings. Neil and John met in 1980 when they were both working in Berlin and discovered their shared interest in record charts.

We have been producing the magazine since 1981, originally as a photocopied fanzine and most recently as a PDF. We have also produced chart booklets for a number of years (1961-1967 and 1983-2011), authored by our contributors David Longbottom and Tobias Zywietz. We try to keep as many back issues of CHARTWATCH as possible available - see the Buy Chartwatch link.

We welcome contributions to CHARTWATCH. We cannot pay for contributions but we do provide a recognisable venue to publish your analyses. To find out more about contributing to CHARTWATCH email
