Off The Record / 10-12pm / 11th February

On this week’s show we asked if Chic were one of the greatest bands ever? Did Squeeze use the best euphemism ever for a song title? We declared that Michael Armstrong is one of the most generous artists ever. That Paul Weller wrote some of the best lyrics ever. The Mayor of M unchkinland sung on one of the best Nothern Soul songs ever and The Stranglers were one of the best punk bands ever. We also remembered Mr Fabulous, Sweet Gene Vincent, Tom Petty and Whitney Houston. We guessed the lyrics from the Human League and quizzed your chart knowledge on what year Sinead O’Connor and Marc Almond & Gene Pitney both enjoyed #1 records.
