Welcome back to The Giddy Carousel of Pop! Hang on tight for a top pop ride.
In this episode we are joined by music mag legend and former Smash Hits editor Mark Ellen, as the carousel spins back to June 1981. There’s also a second guest on the carousel – Adam & The Ants guitarist Marc Pirroni, who shares his memories of the cover story, Smash Hits and a whole lot more (look out for a bonus episode coming soon).
Read along with us.
