2 hours, 30 minutes
First broadcast:
Friday 19 April 2013

Legendary singer and actress Petula Clark picks her final two songs in the Tracks Of My Years. Today she chooses a standard from Dusty Springfield that's taken from her acclaimed album Dusty In Memphis along with the first major solo hit for Rod Stewart which topped the charts on both sides of the Atlantic. There's also the Record and Album of the Week, the love song and the Friday round of the music quiz PopMaster. In a career spanning seven decades, earlier this year Petula released her 35th UK album - Lost In You. Now in her 80th year, the album comes 57 years after her first and fifteen years since her last original album. In a record breaking career, Petula has sold over 70 million records worldwide, becoming the first UK female singer to win a prestigious Grammy Award.
