Off The Record / 10-12pm / 10th September 2019


Thank you for joining me for this week’s show, which celebrated Madness releasing their first single on 2 tone. We gave the collective skunk eye to the news of a new Carry On film being made. Celebrated Richard Ashcroft’s birthday and extolled the virtues of Slade.  We remembered New York and the Dames prayer for peace with Bing Crosby, and finally tracked down an elusive Susan Boyle cover of a Rolling Stone’s classic. Plus our ‘what was the year?’ feature tested your chart knowledge by asking when did The Kinks and the Manic Street Preachers both enjoy #1 records, with The Kinks providing an excuse for me to mention West Ham winning the FA Cup. LLTB!
