Back with Back To The Eighties

Very good to be back on the air with the 80's show.
I was a child of the eighties and it's sometimes a little embarrassing to be caught singing along to all of the words to what seems like every song which came out during that decade!
If only I could remember half the stuff that was shouted at me during school lessons in this period!
Over the next five weeks, I'll be doing two Back To The Eighties shows. Monday 6pm - 7pm & Friday 6pm - 7pm.
Hope you can join me.

Welcome To The Pleasuredome - Frankie Goes To Hollywood

Loving Eighties Music
13 May 2016 17:23 | By: Ian Gray
Maybe it's because my teenage years were during the 80's or maybe the music was just that good in the 80's who knows?
I seem to know most of the words to music in the 80's probably because music and football were my life when growing up. I think I wanted to be a pop star rather than go on to play professional football which may surprise some people but who knows what may have happened if the internet was around back then for us all to broadcast ourselves on....but then - maybe not eh?
A one off show for you and Sam Holloway will be back next week.
Back to the Eighties will return...watch this space.

And so to the last show of the current run - just three shows during this short time.
