Nick Heyward chooses the Tracks of My Years with music from The Beatles and Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons. Nick formed the new wave group Haircut 100 in 1980 which became well known for the preppie outfits they wore as much as their hits 'Love Plus One' and 'Favourite Shirts (Boy Meets Girl)', two of the most endearing songs of the eighties. Both singles hit the top ten in Britain a year later. Nick recorded one LP with the band called 'Pelican West' and then departed for a solo career. Once on his own, Nick's work lost much of Haircut 100's teen gloss; the music was still catchy, but the lyrics were more adult and introspective, as displayed on tracks like 'Whistle Down The Wind' from his 1983 solo debut, 'North Of A Miracle'. His latest album 'Woodland Echoes' was released in August of this year and features a mix of folky love songs, simple pop tunes and classic guitar rock plus an appearance by Haircut 100 drummer Blair Cunningham. Ken also has the daily love song, record and album of the week plus PopMaster. If you'd like to get in touch with the Show email Ken.Bruce@bbc.co.uk.
