Here’s a challenge for you to try…

Try choosing 10 (no more, no less!) of your all-time favourite songs
… and having a reason for picking each one.

So far we’ve asked 50 guests to do just that
(A mixture of RG volunteers and some names you would’ve heard of elsewhere!)

Music Was My First Love‘ is an award winning programme, hosted by Andrew Woolfe and features a range of voices, you’ll hear the chats and the choices in full.
