Soundcheck Special:  The 1980s

All this week on Wessex FM, another Souncheck Special as we heading back to the '80s!  We've got a Eighties Soundcheck survey, where you can rate a bunch of songs from the decade, plus there's loads more Eighties themed fun, including:

  • Play the ultimate 80's computer game - Pacman!
  • Share your photos from the 1980s!
  • Vote in our 1980s poll!

We're also playing a whole hour of songs from the Eighties every day this week between 2-3pm, and there'll be plenty more great eighties songs through the day!

James' Pop Quiz will also have a 1980's theme through the day!

 

Take The Soundcheck Survey

So first things first - we're doing all this because we want to know which 80s songs you love and which ones you don't, so we can continue to make sure we play more of Dorset's Favourite Eighties Music!
