An unexpected (and, frankly, unwanted) guest kick-starts this podcast by unceremoniously interrupting Kicker’s filthy secret and encouraging him to play his favourite songs of the year.

As well as an aural smorgasbord of delight, we also get to hear one of Chorizo’s best ever musical anecdotes, and there’s a quiz! Yes, a quiz!!
