Acclaimed Radio 2 broadcaster Paul Gambaccini reminisces over his midweek song choices in the Tracks Of My Years. Today he picks two title tracks from hugely successful albums. The first comes from Wings' most triumphant album, that was the UK's top selling album of 1974, whilst the other track is from Bruce Springsteen's 1975 breakthrough album that introduced the music of the American rock legend to a mainstream audience. Plus there's the daily love song dedications, the Album Of The Week and listeners can test their music knowledge by playing along to PopMaster.
