    Let's Cher

    Let's Cher

    This week Angela and Kerrie from Bugeye take a look at the careers of Cher and The Spice Girls with new music from Scarlet and The Crystal Furs.
    Cher, Goddess of Pop, has amassed international fame not only in music but also as an actress, taking home many awards. 26 studio albums, and of 34 top 40 hit singles, from 60s hippy duo, Sonny and Cher, to comeback career as a TV cohost and solo superstar, we dig into her incredible story which we hope you will enjoy.
    The Spice Girls rocketed to fame in the 90s with their blend of Girl Power that stormed the charts both here in the UK and internationally. We look at how it all began, from business savvy smarts to how to make your own iconic stage dress.

    Invasion of the cabbage patch dolls

    Invasion of the cabbage patch dolls

    This week we're joined by special guest Caffy St Luce, the fairy godmother of rock, as we explore protest songs through the ages. Kerrie takes us back to the 1930s and what is believed to be one of the first protest songs, Strange Fruit sung by Billie Holiday. We also moonwalk back in time to life in 1979 from politics to the launch of the Sony Walkman before landing at the feet of legends The Slits and their song 'Typical Girl'.
    Expect random facts and stories of Howard Marks, Manic Street Preachers, Mason and more on that inflatable kayak.
    Our music hot picks this week are from Dream Nails and Rosehip Teahouse.

    What a bright spark... and a complete nut job

    What a bright spark... and a complete nut job

    This week Angela and Grace tell the story of Phil Spector looking at his early life, his rise to fame, his demise and the murder of Lana Clarkson. It's a rollercoaster ride of the Wall of Sound, inflatable dolls, Christmas kids, and a whole lot more in-between.
    Our artist hot picks this week are by Deux Furieuses 'Let them burn' and 1983 by The Tuts.
    Please note that Grace's phone line has a bit of background noise. She wasn't standing next to a plane taking off, but more a case of lockdown playing with our phone line quality.
