An 80s Word Up!

We love playing a true variety of music at Phoenix, and that’s reflected in the songs we give an airing to to reflect the festive season. This morning, for example, I dusted off tunes by the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra and Greg Lake – who sadly died earlier this month.

I also set another lyric teaser when I asked if you could work out which song contains these lines:

Living in the shadow of our yesterday – memories of children in the sun.

Everybody’s looking back but that don’t pay! Can’t you see you’ve only just begun?*

We also heard briefly from Clare and Louis Varley, who joined Ruth E Jones on The Hopefield Hour this week, talking about the somewhat unusual way they met:

You can hear the whole show at Ruth’s blog.
