Welcome back to The Giddy Carousel of Pop, a podcast about the Britain’s brightest pop mag, Smash Hits.
In this episode we are joined by our American podcast cousins, Brian and Sarah from Permanent Record Podcast – https://www.permanentrecordpodcast.com/ – as the carousel spins us back to August 1986. And there’s much to discuss!
The cover stars are The Human League. Also featured are Doctor & The Medics, Paul McCartney, Killing Joke, Tina Turner, Katrina & The Waves, Spandau Ballet, Sigue Sigue Sputnik, Zodiac Mindwarp and a whole lot more, alongside the usual Bitz, RSVP, singles reviews and lyrics.
Gav also tells us about his new book, We Peaked At Paper – https://www.boatwhistle.com/we-peaked-at-paper.
Read along with us.
