Macka’s 80s Hits Remembered

Anyone who thought Paul McCartney would slip from the hit making limelight after the Beatles split must have been left red faced throughout the 70s and 80s as his work with Wings and as a solo artist proved.  We celebrate the master of pop this week on The 80s Lunchbox by making Paul McCartney’s Official Website our Website Of The Week .  Tune in weekdays at midday on The Cheese to hear Paul and plenty of your 80s favourites.

Tina Turner – 80s Megastar

Tina Turner had a string of hits in the 60s and early 70s with former husband Ike.  For many stars it would have all been over shortly afterwards.  Not so for Tina who relaunched her career in 1984 with a hit album and so became an even bigger star on her second run.  Tina Turner fans are most loyal and we make her fan club website our Website Of The Week this week on The 80s Lunchbox.  Listen for more details, weekdays from midday on The Cheese.
