Available from Monday February 13 THOSE of you who used to listen to Radio 1 throughout the 80s and early 90s will be familiar with the section of the show called Our Tune, which was hosted by Simon Bates.

And this album is made up of those best-loved songs and ballads featured over the 10 years of the show, including tunes from Take That, George Michael, and Elvis Presley.
