Claudia Winkleman sits in with Andy McCluskey on Tracks of My Years

Claudia Winkleman sits in for Ken Bruce, joined all this week by Andy McCluskey of OMD, for Tracks of My Years. His first choices come from Sparks and Nilsson.

Joining Claudia all this week on Tracks Of My Years is Andy McCluskey from OMD. His first two choices include the UK debut hit by the Mael brothers aka Sparks and a seventies chart topper from Nilsson which is often regarded among music aficionados as being one of the greatest love songs ever recorded. Plus there's the PopMaster music quiz and Record and Album of the Week. In 2010 the long running synth-band, Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark released their comeback album History Of Modern. This week they release the follow up English Electric which will be supported by a UK tour at the end of April and throughout May.
