был такой концерт, если кто помнит... не видела, чтобы его как-то переводили на английский, а мне вот теперь надо. как бы это обыграть, чтобы по-английски тоже вышло прикольно?..

Chart's Dozen
Explanation:
That was my first thought, but it's in fact already translated this way:

And in the middle of the day a well-known radio-showman's voice (presenter of the radio-program "Chartova duzhina" ("Chart's dozen")

Yep, it\'s quite clever, because in charts songs normally go in tens... and here it\'s a dozen.

А какой, собственно, ещё музыкальный уклон искать -- чарт он и в Африке чарт!

Why the **** call it a \"radio-showman\" (see the quote) when you can say \"a DJ\"?! Something got lost in the translation... :-)

Biker's dozen


Explanation:
Чертова дюжина, согласно словарю LINGVA - "Baker's dozen"

в русском варианте тоже изменена одна буква под "chart.ru" (если я не ошибаюсь)

Так почему бы нам по-английски тоже одну букву не изменить? А "байкер" - это всегда прикольно... ;-)

Удачи Вам!

Тогда, может быть \"Bucker\'s dosen\"

Buсker - это дробилка. По грохоту к современной музыке близко, а?
