Tonight, Sara Cox is joined by Glenn Tilbrook from Squeeze.

Formed in South East London during the new wave period of the late 1970s, they reached number two in the charts with the hits Cool For Cats and Up The Junction in 1979 before splitting up in 1982. In 1985, songwriters Tilbrook and Chris Difford were reunited when they reformed and released the album Cosi Fan Tutti Frutti. They were joined by Gilson Lavis on drums, Keith Wilkinson on bass and Jools Holland on keyboards.

Plus, Sara has the Top 5 this week in 1983, a classic 12" single from Men Without Hats and the album of the week is the classic album The Visitors from ABBA.
