Allen's Army Frontline Chart

The Allen's Army Frontline Chart was a chart based on votes. Each week the listeners of the show would ring into an answering machine and cast a vote for their favourite record, the votes were counted and the chart compiled. Mike would countdown the Frontline Chart on the Saturday night show. This chart was generally a better indication of what the most popular tracks were at the time as it was based on votes and not sales, the problem with the sales chart was that some imports were very limited so even though a track might be very popular it would have been difficult for it to reach the top spots in the sales chart.
