    In two separate but spirited interviews from 1996 and 1998, the Spice Girls talk to Simon Mayo and Zoe Ball.

In the first interview, they crash into Simon Mayo’s Radio 1 studio, animated about their number 1 single Wannabe. In the second, before headlining the Birmingham NEC, they chat to Zoe Ball about backlashes and boyfriends, unaware that Geri would leave the group just two weeks later.
