Off The Record / 10-12pm / 18th February

On this week’s show we recall when The Sugar Hill Gang er…borrowed a choon from Chic? How Steve Strange went from The Blitz to TOTP’s. That Michael Armstrong improved a Billy Joel’s Allentown. How The Commodores became a soundtrack to a pair of crack heads. We also praised Jarvis Cocker, who called out Michael Jackson, years ahead of anybody else. We remembered Otis Williams, shouted Oi! Oi! For Brian James and wished Randy Crawford a happy Birthday and gave credit to Yoko. We guessed lyrics from The Rats and quizzed your chart knowledge on what year the original Suzie Q and Steve Harley both enjoyed #1 records.
