Virgin Radio’s spin-off station dedicated to the good old 1980s – Virgin Radio 80s Plus – this weekend launched a new weekly show which we will be hosted each month by a different 80s pop star.

The first host of the new show is actor and vocalist Clare Grogan, who gets the gig as the lead singer of new wave outfit Altered Images. Once she’s done, it will be Matt Goss of Bros in the presenting chair, and then Carol Decker of T’Pau fame. And beyond that, well, “more 80s icons” promises the radio station.

Mike Cass, Content Director at Virgin Radio UK, says: “We’re excited to launch our guest host series, with the biggest legends sharing their own tales of the 80s. Who better to give us a taste of this great decade than the biggest stars of the time?”

And if you’re wondering how Decker is feeling about her upcoming stint on Virgin Radio 80s Plus, well, what do you think? “I’m absolutely THRILLED to join Virgin Radio 80s Plus as a guest host”, says she. “Having lived it, I can’t wait to take a trip down memory lane and share the fantastic stories and unforgettable tracks from the era”.
