Zoe Ball sits in for Ken and ethereal singer Florence Welch chooses the 'Tracks Of My Years'. Today she picks the debut hit by Coventry based band King - which was not only a massive hit during the mid-eighties, but went on to become a club favourite. Florence also chooses a successful cover of a Bruce Springsteen song by popular English prog-rock group, Manfred Mann Earth Band. There's also the 'Love-Song', the Album Of The Week and the music quiz PopMaster.
