The Vinyl Frontier - Forgotten 80s (livestream)

A live streamed event from Norden Farm.

Join host Jeff Lloyd as he and 10 virtual guests each pick a classic 'forgotten' track from the first 11 Now That's What I Call Music LPs. Whether it's a track you haven't heard in ages, a lesser known hit by a big artist or simply one that's slipped through the cracks you're guaranteed to have a nostalgic evening of day-glo legwarmers, shoulder pads and back-combed hair!

The guests will all appear via self-filmed inserts before each track is played. What will be on their bookshelves...?
