Welcome to PopMaster here on Radio 2. We’ve had the quiz running for a few years now (*cough*) and it’s become a huge part of the mid-morning show. It’s a chance to test your knowledge of popular music against the rest of the nation and whether you play along in the car, at home, or at work (or maybe you could be coaxed into calling in to take part one morning?), we hope you enjoy it. Happy quizzing!
- Ken Bruce
