Podcast: It’s National Album Day! It’s the 80s! It’s a Radio 2 poll! Will it be Dire Straits, or Public Enemy, or Whitney? Or even Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret by Soft Cell? No, it won’t be that. How are you celebrating? Why would you? And what’s going on with Gary Davies? Why can’t HMV spell Psychedelic Furs? What’s Rishi Sunak got to do with it? Robin Gibson and Sean Gollogly buy a kilo of mixed vinyl at Aldi and join in. Contains filler.
