Off The Record / 10-12pm / 10th March


On this week’s show we remembered when Motown was Chic, quite literally, and when the Lambrettas itched due to Poison Ivy. How Andy Williams could hold a note and how Brian Wilson could write a tune. How one hot summer’s day warped two of my 12” records. How Kate Bush influenced Neil Hannon.  How How Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh gave the West Ham board the skunk eye and when Chrissie Hinde tore up some Gap jackets. Plus we remembered Joni Sledge and dear Keef. We guessed lyrics from Billy Idol and tested your chart knowledge on what year Goyte and Years & Years both enjoyed #1 records.
