Joel Newnham

I've made a few discoveries and I'm guessing some of these artists will appear in part 2. No names of course :)

White Lion Radio

Glad you liked the show mate, no band/artist is allowed more than one track, so Part 2 might just surprise you, tracks people might not expect are in there :)

Joel Newnham

I remember in 1986 in WH Smiths 7" were £1.75 and 12" were £2.99 :)

White Lion Radio

Those were the days Joel, albums were around £3.99!!

There some great 12’ inches but don’t think many of them are the best The Ahe 12 inch was the not too good version of know anything about 80s 12 inches they put on The other better 12 inch remix that had a cream cover on and more popular and had more airplay in clubs There loads better 80s 12 inches that won’t get featured

The Lemon Circus

Will not go through all the tracks here as I know you don't want them spoilt but that truly was a great selection of 12" singles - seriously not a bad one in there, may be easier saying which was my least fave... er... perhaps the Howard Jones, melodic but surrounded by too much synth pop beats and seemed a bit lost :) waiting for part 2....
