Noddy Holder, the former frontman of Slade and king of the Christmas single, shares his musical milestones with Matt Everitt in a programme first broadcast in 2015.
Slade formed from various groups in Wolverhampton and Walsall in 1965. It took them until 1971 to have their first hit. This started a consistent run that would include six UK No. 1 singles and three UK No. 1 albums. Noddy quit the band in 1992. Oasis, KISS, the Sex Pistols, the Ramones, the Clash and Paul Weller have all paid their respects, even Kurt Cobain was a fan.
Noddy tells the stories behind some of Slade's biggest records, yes, including Merry Xmas Everybody.
