I've not included the 6 or 7 montage tracks played at the start of the programme, only those played in full (though Reach was sung over dreadfully). Actually I'd put a health warning on the last programme as seldom have two people whose voices so strangulate vowels been put together. It was certainly the most annoying of the five shows and not because of the music.

Anyway, if you want to hear them all in full on iPlayer go here:

But beware the shows start to disappear on Monday as they only last 7 days.
