Sunday Delight – 12th February

13th February 2023
Posted by Ros Connors

Hello dear listener.  A rather poignant edition of the show this week as we say goodbye to one of the greatest songwriters of all time – Burt Bacharach – who has sadly passed away at the age of 94.  As Bacharach collaborated with over a thousand artistes during his tenure which began in the 50s, it wasn’t difficult to fill a two-hour show with a collection of some of his best tunes.

In hour two, the ‘Retro Rewind’ takes us back to February 1985, looking at the big news stories, TV shows, movies, and playing a selection of songs top of the official singles chart.  Enjoy!

Here’s this week’s playlist…
