2/2. Marking 30 years since
Margaret Thatcher became Prime Minister, Jeremy Vine recalls pop music's response to her 1980s reign - from 2 Tone, Elvis Costello and The Jam to Band Aid and beyond - and assesses the music's impact and its legacy. Tonight's concluding chapter looks at the 1980s triumph of pop style (Duran Duran , Spandau Ballet) and forges links between Thatcherism's DIY ethos with Band Aid and, resulting from the government's Enterprise Allowance, countless new record labels such as Creation plus the sound system Soul II Soul. Featuring interviews with Gary Kemp (of Spandau
Ballet), producer Pete Waterman , Soul II Soul's Jazzie B and Creation
Records' co-founder Alan McGee.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
