Last week's contest question from Small World Music: Who is the oldest person to have a #1 release on the Billboard music charts?
The hint was that the release is on the charts right now. So no need to delve back into history.
The answer: 65-year old Bob Dylan, for his new release, "Modern Life".
There were two winners. Remember, we select one winner from the correct answers, and one from the incorrect answers. We reward not just expertise, but effort!
Winners have been notified through email. They are Jeff F., and A.G.
We won't say who had the correct answer, and who the incorrect. But the incorrect answer was a good guess: Tony Bennett. Mr. Bennett is in fact older than Mr. Dylan, and has a current release in the charts. But it hasn't made #1 .
Thanks to everyone who entered. Next contest appears on Friday, 13 Oct.
