Elaine Paige joins Ken to choose some more of her favourite records in Tracks of My Years. Today we listen to Wicked Game by Chris Isaak and Friends by Bette Midler. We'll also have a round of Popmaster, the Love Song, a play of the Record of the Week and a play of a track from the Album of the Week.

And The Chesney Bentings Mysteries continue, a brand new comedy drama serial broadcasting on this week's Ken Bruce Show, in the build-up to Red Nose Day. In "The Error of Comedy", Jake Yapp plays our eponymous hero - Chesney Bentings - in a gripping tale of murder and dastardly doings.
