2021 - The Back to NOW Review‪!‬ Back to NOW!

    • Music Commentary

Welcome and indeed the most festive of greetings, as the back to NOW podcast brings 2021 to a close. 
And from a variously compiled world of pop viewpoint, what a fabulous year it has been!
For this special end of year episode, like the most treasured of Christmas present annuals nestling under the Christmas tree, we unwrap the last twelve months of NOW – and indeed pop culture as a whole – to see what has tickled our fancy and sparked our collective curiosities!
Consumers of fine compilations have been spoiled for their chosen tunes with a smorgasbord of selections including everything from glam to 60s girls, from boogie nights disco to Disney, Eurovision to two volumes of 12 inches of extended stimulation! 
Oh, and did we mention the wonder that has been the 83 and 84 Yearbooks? 
And as it is indeed the season to be jolly, we shall take a sleigh ride stop and carefully unwrap the newest NOW Christmas album and decide if it’s worth stuffing into your stocking! 
Expect starring appearances for Duran Duran, ABBA, Lieutenant Pigeon (!), Sister Sledge, Amanda Lear, Jona Lewie and many more! 
Discover the link between brown beer and Shazam (really?), how Channel 5 has saved music TV, why the Pig is still so important and who really were the ‘Gibson Brothers of Breakdance’ (you need to know!)?
Join Radio 2’s Sounds of the 80s producer and masterful mastermixer Johnny Kalifornia
Music Journalist and all-round social media pop mogul Ian Wade and the man that has brought the Duckie club night back to life and continues to sprinkle pop joy wherever he goes – Mark Wood as we collectively bring the curtain down on an amazing pop year and look forward to what is on the horizon for 2022!
