Welcome back to The Giddy Carousel of Pop! Hang on tight for a top pop ride.
In the this bumper episode, TV and film production designer and (most importantly) pop kid Richard Drew joins us on the carousel as it spins back to the Smash Hits of late February 1983. OMD are on the front cover and inside we find Musical Youth, Spandau Ballet, Thompson Twins, The Belle Stars, David Bowie, Marillion, Toto, Level 42, China Crisis, The Gap Band, Haysi Fantayzee, JoBoxers, Bonnie Tyler, Orange Juice, Eurythmics, The Beatles, Icehouse and Wham! alongside all the regular features (Bitz, Get Smart, Letters, RSVP). There’s a lot to discuss!
Read along with us!
