Episode 15: Smash Hits – 17 February – 2 March 1983 with Richard Drew

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 thanks to Like Punk Never Happened and Smash Hits Remembered.

And check out the playlists of pretty much all the songs featured in this issue of Ver Hits on Spotify and YouTube (lots of extra goodies on the YouTube playlist for this one).
