"If you'd like to know what popstars have for tea, ask Johnny Dee". Johnny Dee was a fanzine writer in the 80's, but he didn't really know much about popstars he says in the liner notes for last year's Chesterf!elds retrospective. But The Chesterf!elds encapsulate what I think this programme is about. The theme is sort of a non-theme: the only thing that ties these songs together is that they're all POP! and that they can't be fit into some microscopic subgenre. The links I mention on the show can be found here in the playlist.
