Pop And Circumstance", broadcast in 2001 and hosted by Go-Set
staff reporter, Michelle O'Driscoll, gave me the opportunity
to closely research Go-Set Magazine at the National Library in Canberra.

I have tried in the design of this website to reflect the original
magazine artwork as closely as possible. Variations in logos, top
40 formats, and the colours used in the charts week by week, all closely
reflect how they originally appeared in Go-Set at the time of publication.
Thank you to the many people who contributed Go-Set cover photos.
Special thanks to Ed Nimmervoll, Go-Set's chart compiler, for
permission to put these charts on the net, so a wider audience has
access to them.
No other website exists to my knowledge which comprehensively lists
the entire top 40 charts from this period in Australian rock music
history. I hope you enjoy reminiscing.
Please do contact me if you have any thing
you'd like to contribute to the website.
