Tio i Topp – The Popular Swedish Radio Show

Tio i topp was the first music charts in Sweden, launched by Swedish Broadcasting (Sveriges Radio) in 1961. The charts were based on the votes of one or two studio audiences. The basic set up was to have one audience in Stockholm and one in another city in Sweden, which sometimes account for local artists reaching a high position on the charts one week and disappearing from the charts the next.

The radio show was extremely popular with young people in the 1960s and had a great influence on Swedish pop scene. Hitting the charts was almost a must for any Swedish artist at the time. Some artists went to great lengths to achieve just that. In the mid-sixties, the group Science Poption was banned from the charts after it was discovered that they had tried to influence the jury.

In 1974, the board of Swedish Broadcasting decided that the program preserved young people’s musical taste in favor of imperialistic interests. The last show was aired June 29, 1974.
