What's Coming Up on Only the 80s?

Only the 80s

Why not go back in time to this wonderful decade at 4pm eastern, that’s 9pm in the UK – you know you want to!

As well as playing lots of great music, we’ll also be taking a look back at the UK and the US Billboard Charts from 1986. Ballads of the 80s will also feature and if you would like to hear your favourite ballad on future shows, just drop me a line.
