The Chain reaches its second millennium, the 2000th record. Starting way back in April 2007, The Chain has taken the faithful listener on a varied musical journey, never repeating a single record - including 40 appearances by The Beatles, 33 of David Bowie, 19 of the Rolling Stones but only 2 of Coldplay.

So charge your glasses, unpack the bunting, crack open the mature cheddar cheese and join Mark and Stuart and special guest, Gordon "The Voice of the Chain" Burns, in commemorating this special occasion, the 2000th record of the Chain.
