Brian has a special edition of the show, to round off a fabulous year. A line from the lyrics in each track links to the title of the next one - with the final song of the show coming full circle and linking back to the first song played.
Kicking off the chain reaction will be Mike Berry's 'Just A Matter Of Time' - join in and see if you can guess what the next track will be before Brian plays it.
With music from: James Brown, The Allisons, Cliff Richard, Petula Clark, The Brumbeats, Tom Jones, Jose Feliciano, Gerry & The Pacemakers, Billie Davis and many more!
