Debbie Turner

Fantastic show - so many of my favourites on here. Space Monkey, Gazebo, ABC. Brilliant!


Thank you very much, Debbie. Chuffed to bits!

Mark Bowen

Ah, so many memories.... excellent mix! Far superior to the first couple of volumes of the UK Now That's What I Call Music series, heh!


Oh, hi there, Mark! Thank you very much indeed. I quite liked that series, although inevitably there were always some songs I detested with a vengeance. But then, there will certainly be a few tracks in my mixes that won't find favour with everyone.


I could listen to this one all day long! :-)


Oh wow, thanks!

Anne Jackson
