Richards, Arnie and Fat Cat - this week on the 20 20!

richard.jpg Monday - Yah!! Its All About Richards!

Yes, we've put together a countdown "Rich with Richards and Ricks"... There's all the favourites - Astley, Marx, Starkey... but along the way, there are a stack of little known Ricks and Richards who were key members of some of the biggest bands of all time.... And we'll pay tribute to some other celebrity Richards... including Mr Simmons!

 

commando.jpg Tuesday - All the hits of this week in 1985!

Yes, we've got the paper chart featuring the top 20 from mid October 1985 - with a top 10 that brought together David Bowie and Mick Jagger for "Live Aid". Listen to the countdown to hear the intereting plans they were making to launch their single together. Also Arnie was back on the big scren in the movie that really cemented him as the biggest action star of the 80's!

 

fatcat.jpg Wednesday - Fat Cat brings takes us to 1992!

It's a countdown topped by a song that was not only a huge hit.. it introduced us to the huge line dancing craze! Also famous for his dancing was Fat Cat... but times weren't good for the children's TV favourite. He was in the news as questions were raised over his educational value. It was the beginning of the end for Fat Cat! We'll remember that amongst the hits of this week in 1992!

 

werewolf.jpg Thursday - Roaring Back To October 1981!

Don't miss our countdown of the hits from the week when this movie premiered! Yes, we'll remember one of the most bizarre hit movies, and play 20 hits from a time when the hits were equally bizarre.. Anything could make the charts and usually did... from a band with flower pots on their head to an Elvis impersonator.. They're part of our visit to mid October 1981!

 

kiss.jpg Friday - Kissing Off The Week With Kiss Hits!

One of our favourite countdowns - there's plenty of kissing songs to choose from - we've goy our top 20 featuring a number 1 that was a cover of a 60's song.
