Got brand new tracks from DNCE and Taylor Swift (the old one is now dead apparently) and the entire Top 20 singles, Top 10 albums and a couple of UK number one flashbacks for your delight. See how good I am to you?

Justin has yet another collaboration (Which sounds a bit like every other) vying for number one, can he dethrone Dua Lipa after just one week? Is it girl power all the way? There’s the chance of Calvin, Pharrell, Sean and Katy reclaiming number one too. New entries include Camila Cabello, Macklemore is back! And so is Chris Brown. There’s lots to hear and relish! (Including my mess-ups) Yes, they’re all in there! Enjoy!

I am taking you back 33 years, yes that’s how old you are, to 1984. Style Council, Howard Jones, The Smiths. Some lost in the wilderness bands like Break Machine or Bronski Beat yes the eighties were cheesier than a double whopper with extra cheese, and that’s a lot of cheese, not really good for you know, you really gotta cut that shit out and eat some more healthy shit.

Anyway, the music Wham! Check, Duran Duran, Check, Status Quo Check, Gene Vincent Check, … wait a minute… Gene Vincent? Ohhhh he’s in the album chart section, check, a bit of Pointer Sisters, Sister Sledge, Madness, OMD, Phil Collins and Bob Marley. Download it live it.. breathe it… beeee it.

The Tunes That Never Get Old. Unlike the rest of us. These are the classics that stand the test of time, even some as recent as 2016. There’s a mix of pop. Rock, dance, R&B and a smidgen of reggae for the connoisseur. A bit of everything to keep anyone who loves music happy.

Get yourself involved as we spawn seven decades of music to bring you the very best dating back to “Bobby Vee” right up to date with Justin Timberlake, Iggy Azalea, Walk The Moon, John Legend and more. Back to the seventies with Lou Reed, David Bowie, the eighties with Heart and “Alone”, Cyndi Lauper and the classic Rocker’s Revenge. There’s nineties favourites from Michael Jackson, Ultra Naté, Crash Test Dummies and more. Enjoy!

Way back in time we go to February 1982. When peeps like Barry Manilow, Sheena Easton And Olivia Newton John was taking up chart positions. Now those days are gone. I suppose we should be thankful for that at least. But Olivia’s “Physical” was a cracker and features in this chart. Expect some Hall & Oates, Kenny Rogers, Stevie Wonder, Quarterflash, Joan Jett + Diana Ross.

I will take a look at the top Pop Albums of the time, playing the entire top 20 singles, along with a few from the bottom of the chart. The fight for number one was on J Giels Band held off all competition but can they do it in this particular week or are Hall + Oates, Quarterflash or Journey going to end their run. Lots of great eighties classics in here. “Leader Of The Band”, “Chariots Of Fire”, “Abacab”, “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll” and “Centerfold”. Lots more to add to the bargain. Get it now!
