The Proclaimers pick the Tracks of My Years

Charlie and Craig Reid aka The Proclaimers pick the Tracks of My Years. Plus there's another round of the PopMaster music quiz.

Charlie and Craig Reid aka The Proclaimers pick the Tracks of My Years. Their latest album Angry Cyclist is their first new material for three years and the band are currently on tour across the UK. Twin brothers Craig and Charlie emerged 31 years ago with their debut album This Is The Story and Top 3 single ‘Letter from America’. Since then their enduring appeal across generations has seen them enjoy huge success across the globe. They have even inspired the musical, the play and film Sunshine on Leith. The Proclaimers have carved out a niche for themselves in the netherworld where pop, folk, new wave and punk collide. In the process they have enjoyed Gold and Platinum singles and albums in UK, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Born in Leith in 1962, Craig and Charlie Reid grew up in Edinburgh, Cornwall and Auchtermuchty in Fife. At home, they listened to early rock ‘n’ roll and country greats such as Jerry Lee Lewis, Merle Haggard and Hank Williams. At school, they played in punk bands and formed The Proclaimers in 1983.

Ken also has another round of PopMaster, the daily Love Song and record and album of the week. If you want to contact the show, email - ken.bruce@bbc.co.uk
