Lead vocalist with Suede and solo artist, Brett Anderson selects his last two songs of the week in the 'Tracks Of My Years'. His Friday choice includes an eighties hit from The Pet Shop Boys which lead singer Neil Tennant once performed live with Suede and a million-selling record from Freda Payne. Plus there's another track from the Album Of The Week and the final round-of-the-week for the music quiz, PopMaster. Brett's fourth solo album 'Black Rainbows' was released at the end of September.
