Music Week's Airplay Chart Comment:
With a major leg-up from Radio 2 which provided 11 of their 104 plays at a whopping 82% of their audience, Duran Duran made their first foray into the airplay chart for exactly 10 years last week with their upcoming single (Reach up for the) Sunrise.
Dream 100FM and Virgin are also early and enthusiastic supporters of the song helping it to gain a toehold on the chart at 44; it now advances to number 24 with 9 new stations last week adding their support to the 17 already on board. The last Duran Duran single to reach the Top 50 of the airplay chart was another parenthetical title, their 1995 cover of Grand Master Flash's White Lines (Don't do it).
