British record sales -- A Quick Takes item in Wednesday's Calendar said Britain's weekly singles hit parade was started in 1952 and had reached its 1,000th week the previous Sunday, with a re-release of Elvis Presley's "One Night" claiming the No. 1 position. In fact, the milestone applied not to the number of weeks since the chart was launched, but to the record itself: "One Night" was the 1,000th single to reach the No. 1 spot.
