Today like you, we are struggling to make sense of the attacks in Westminster. We saw the very worst in people but we also saw the very best in the selfless bravery of our emergency services. Also the MP Tobias Ellwood who rushed to try and help the fallen officer. Today we think of those who lost their lives and their families. We also thank the emergency services, if you see them today...

The UK's No.1 Album 30 years ago was U2's 'The Joshua Tree'.
It went on to become the fastest-selling album in UK history.
Many say it is the band's best, some say even say it is the best rock album of the 80s...what say you?

We have this argument with Absolute Radio 90s all the time, but as it's the Vernal Equinox - where we get equal amounts of night and day or in this case (ahem) 'Knight' and 'Bay', we've called the whole thing 'Hoff'.

Not sure what was in the water 30 years ago, but the UK Singles Chart was full of old songs covered by former front men - including Boy George & Culture Club at No.1 and Freddie Mercury of Queen at No.4. Not to the originals of old songs with Jackie Wilson at No.3 and Ben E. King at No.6!
