Simon Mayo is joining Greatest Hits Radio at the weekend with a show celebrating the greatest albums of the 70s, 80s and 90s.
A three-hour showcase dedicated to the albums that shaped a generation, listen every Sunday at 1pm. Expect all the iconic tracks and rediscover the musical gems that provided the musical backdrop to three decades. The show will also explore your record collections, celebrating the good times and great memories they represent, along with a weekly Classic Album Countdown.
Speaking about joining Greatest Hits Radio, Simon said: “Three hours of great album music will be a Sunday treat for me. I hope it will reconnect you to a time when your album collection was THE most important thing in your life. It said who you were. By the time we come off-air, you’ll want to listen to them all again! Insert that CD. Put the needle on the record. Press play on your cassette player. This will be fun!”
The Album show with Simon Mayo kicks off on Sunday 6th September at 1pm with a celebration of one of Simon’s favourite artists, Bruce Springsteen. The inaugural show will pay homage to The Boss. Diving into the back catalogue of the Jersey Shore native, you can relive musical moments from albums including ’75 epic ‘Born To Run’, which gave Springsteen worldwide acclaim and turned the title track into a timeless anthem, and the iconic ‘Born in the USA’ whose artwork graced countless bedroom walls and featured hit after hit including ‘Glory Days’, ‘Dancing in the Dark’ and ‘Cover Me’.
