Take a look at me Now...

Now Parlez is Steve and Julian’s spirited (but regularly interrupted by global events) attempt to review all the Now That’s What I Call Music albums – or, as a starting point, the ones that came out in the 1980s. Each show features your genial hosts discussing an album in the series and playing tracks from an original vinyl copy of varying quality.

Now Parlez 14

After a lengthy and unwanted absence, we’re back! Join us as we take you through Now That’s What I Call Music 14 from March 1989, play some tracks from a particularly shonky vinyl copy of the album, and talk about Paul Weller’s fall from grace, Michael Ball’s secret love of acid house and a mysterious letter to someone called Bernard. It’ll make sense if you listen.
