With the news that the most streamed TV show in 2018 has been Friends, we had a number of songs about friends. We also had a feature about the career of the Motown legends, The Four Tops. With the anniversary of the Abbey Road iconic photo shoot, there was one a track from the album and a cover version of another. Emails included Sophie Griffiths and family listening by the pool in Massachusetts and telling us they were going to see the Beach Boys playing live the next day. We tried very hard not to be jealous!
