Well, it’s coming to the end of an era (many would say the best of the 80s was behind us by this point) but how can you say that with Alice Cooper back!, Guns and Roses, Tears For Fears, Black Box, Aerosmith and Depeche Mode bringing some of their greatest songs to the fore!.

Last week’s top 5 recap, album chart, entire top 20 singles played and more. Two hours of the best of 1989. It is a great month and some great memories are in there.”Ride On Time”, “Personal Jesus”, “The Best” and even some Jive Bunny (Oh come on, it’s classic stuff) Enjoy!

Taking a trip back to what seems like a lifetime ago now, the nineties. When your Rachel Haircut was cool, Tamagotchi were the must have gadget and films like Braveheart, Titanic, Silence Of The Lambs were winning Oscars. This show represents VH1’s list of what they say is voted the greatest songs of the decade.

So we are looking at such diversity as Pearl Jam to Backstreet Boys. Britney Spears to Beck. Also Eminem, U2, Nirvana, R.E.M, Whitney, and Counting Crows. There is bound to be something for anyone who remembers with fondness the decade where Disney was in renaissance. Enjoy

*Classic* - Billboard Hot 100 February 20 1982

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!

Ah, yes back to the days when they killed off ole Den Watts in Eastenders [well, the first time anyway]. And everything else happening around the UK is too depressing to even contemplate telling you. SO onto the happier climate of the music. March the 4th 1989 Michael Jackson was at battle with Simple Minds of all creatures for the top spot.

Paula Abdul has her first UK top 40 hit, as do Texas and Sam Brown among some others. There’s new entries from The Reynolds girls attacking the oldies of the music scene [bad move girls]. We hear some classic Deacon Blue, Posion, Depeche Mode, Donna Summer, Holly Johnson and Def Leppard. There’s a foray into the top ten albums which is all good. A good wee trip back to 1989 then!

Step back in time with me to September 1988. Lighting up the chart are Yazz, Julio & Stevie, Phil Collins and Brother Beyond (don’t ask me why and shit), but they are there. More famous for Soft Cell in the eighties, Marc Almond is out on his own. Old favourites The Commodores are back. The Hollies and Bill Medley also make a welcome return with two different versions of the same song. Whoa! Trippy!

There is some Metallica, Robbie Robertson, Fairground Attraction, UB40 and The Proclaimers to name but a few more. Two hours of great music from the second part of the eighties. Taking a look at the album chart of the week. Playing all of the top 20 singles. It’s all good. Enjoy!

”Hello again, my friend”. Ah Neil Diamond from the Jazz Singer can’t beat it. No there’s no Neil Diamond in this chart so deal with it. Today it is back to 1981. We take a venture through the official chart and the week slap bang in the middle of summer. Kirsty MacColl and Bruce Springsteen debut on the top 40. There is some Adam Ant, Michael Jackson, Smokey Robinson, The Specials, Bob Marley, Tom Tom Club, Phil Collins, Ultravox, Shakin’ Stevens, Rainbow and many more.

I got so damn excited by the music, a little bit of pee accidentally came out. 1981 when we were asking Margaret Thatcher to do one, and are now doing that to the male version Cameron (tosser), the world in comparison wasn’t too much different politically. You know what though, back then we were kinder, and nicer to one another through it. Take some release in the music of 1981.

It’s a bundle of fun for everyone. Modern day memories just been created with today’s great music or if you are a bit like me and live in decades past then this is also the show for you. We take a delve into some of those songs that are in danger of never going away, and we love it.

Tunes That Never Get Old takes you way back to the time of your life when a certain song just pops out and makes you smile. Whether it’s the 70s, 80s, 90s or beyond then enjoy the music and the memories either way it’s quite a party.
