Absolute Radio launches Through the Decades Podcast

Through the Decades is a brand-new podcast from Absolute Radio, where each week a celebrity guest joins Andy Bush for a trip through time. 

Beginning in the 60s, before working their way across the 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s, 10s and back to the present day, each guest shares their stories of how each decade has shaped their lives and made them who they are today.

With music at the heart of so many memories, we begin each era with a song which reminds our guest of a moment in time. From Jimi Hendrix and David Bowie to Wolf Alice and Young Fathers, Through the Decades is a love letter to life and the passage of time.

Guests for this series include comedian Mel Giedroyc, Strictly judge Craig Revel Horwood, musician Noel Gallagher, actor Ralf Little, author Dame Jacqueline Wilson, impressionist Jon Culshaw and American Drag Queen Jujubee.

The first three episodes of Through the Decades will be available from 10am on 28th March, with a new episode released each week on a Monday.

Listen and download on Amazon Music, Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and all mainstream podcast providers.
