Who remembers the craze for hit medleys in the early 80s ? Stars On 45 (Or Starsound as they were known in some parts of the world) hit the charts in 1981 with The Stars On 45. Several successful follow ups appeared and spawned a whole host of other medley makers (Beach Boy Gold, Startrax and the most famous of all, Tight Fit).
