    Agree with all of the above, as with the Bananarama part 1 series, I’m thoroughly enjoying this Basil series!
    I do think this is a nice feature for you to have…it doesn’t have to be a weekly thing, but as an on-and-off surprise that will sit very nicely with us fans here.
    There are so many 80s artistes’ discography you can delve into, so I’m sure you have no lack of inspiration!
    Great job, Paul!
