In this week’s show we paid a belated tribute to Marc Bolan, recalling how the news of his car crash was relayed to Captain Sensible by his Mum, and how this led to a track in Marc’s memory from The Damned.
We played a couple of classic tracks from Stevie Wonder’s seminal album Songs From The Key of Life. An absolute peach from The Dame’s Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) album, plus some perfect ‘walk on’ music for Holly & Phil by The Divine Comedy.
We recalled when Berard Manning joined The Smiths, a grim career message from XTC, and a cracking vocal debut from Jim Diamond. Also testing your knowledge on lyrics from Tom Petty, and when The Beatles & The King both scored record #1 records.
