Tonight the music did the talking. New music was from Lady Antebellum, Pentatonix and Glen Campbell, all from this week’s album chart. We had requests for ELO, La La Land soundtrack, Bee Gees, China Crisis and Andy Williams. The lost band were the Box Tops, who are back performing live in the USA. Lisa Harman was thrilled that one of her exclusive tracks to the show had been requested. Listeners appreciated the relaxed feel of the show tonight.
