Some Slade for the weekend


This week it’s glam rock titans Slade who had sixteen UK top ten hits including six number ones. They produced some amazing rock songs with their brilliant gravelly and loud (!)  voiced frontman Noddy Holder. They were known for their purposely misspelled titles! Here are two of those number ones.

Some T.Rex for the weekend

This week we celebrate British glam rock icon Marc Bolan who had a string of hits with his band T.Rex in the 70s before his tragic death aged just 29 in a car accident in 1977.
Here are two of his many memorable songs.
