Trevor Horn and Nell Bryden

Trevor Horn, the legendary record producer picks the Tracks of My Years with songs from Marmalade and Pink Floyd. Plus Ken has a World Exclusive from Nell Bryden.

Trevor Horn, the legendary record producer picks the Tracks of My Years with songs from Marmalade and Pink Floyd. His latest album ‘Trevor Horn Reimagines The 80s’ sees Trevor work with a range of artists including Robbie Williams, Seal, Jim Kerr and All Saints as he recreates versions of classic songs from the 80s, including Everybody Wants To Rule The World and Ashes To Ashes.
Trevor gained international acclaim following his 1979 hit single Video Killed The Radio Star, written with his band The Buggles. The track was a worldwide success, reaching number 1 in the singles charts in sixteen different countries. Trevor was then briefly the lead vocalist in progressive rock band Yes before he decided to focus his attentions on production work.
He has since worked with the likes of Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Pet Shop Boys, Seal and Robbie Williams among many others over a career which has seen him win three Brit Awards, a Grammy and an Ivor Novello award. He was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in 2011 for his services to the music industry.

Ken has the World Exclusive first play of Nell Bryden's new single Smoke In My Heart and he chats to Nell on the phone about her new album and UK tour.

Ken’s also got another round of the PopMaster music quiz, the record and album of the week and the daily love song. To contact the show, just email ken.bruce@bbc.co.uk
