Queen – Pop Icons Into A 5th Decade

They were originally called Smile and their lead singer almost adopted the name Larry Lurex !  Luckily Freddie Mercury and the boys settled on Queen and kept their hold on the charts from the 70s onwards.  We remember their contribution to 80s culture this week on The 80s Lunchbox by making one of the best fansites – Queenzone, our Website Of The Week.  Find out more by tuning into The Cheese, weekdays from midday.

Celebrate The Bee Gees Music Legacy

The Gibb Brothers success spanned the decades from the 60s to the present day, although it’s been far from an easy ride for the Bee Gees.  The tragic early deaths of Andy and Maurice Gibb robbed the world of two unique talents.  Maurice and Andy are remembered with a mixture of poetry, rare interviews and material as well as the celebration of their music on a great fansite called BrothersGibb.  It’s our Website Of The Week this week on The 80s Lunchbox.  Find out more from midday, weekdays on The Cheese.
