Pretty much all of them. 80s retro gigs and roadshows are still huge. And anyway, it would be fun to find out with a re-recording and a chart battle....and a lot of money for charity!

Yes so I believe, with George Aitchieson now doing the show having recently left YOUR radio.

There is rather a bit of presenter-churn at the mo generally. It's like 1999 all over again.
