Dance Anthems: Pet Shop Boys Special

Dance Anthems: Pet Shop Boys Special – 2009 12 20

In a special edition of Dance Anthems, Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe – aka The Pet Shop Boys – join Dave Pearce to discuss their favourite dance music tunes from the past 25 years and how club music has influenced their career. In the two hour programme, the duo – who won the lifetime achievement after at the 2009 Brit Awards – tell Dave how a trip to New York in 1983 started their journey into the dance world, leading them to work with the likes of Frankie Knuckles, David Morales and Shep Pettibone. They also share their memories of clubbing to tunes by Bobby O, Brothers In Rhythm and Felix Da Housecat and discuss how their contribution to dance music has often been overlooked. The band also tell Dave about their new single and world tour and also share their memories of tracks by Grandmaster Flash, Tomkraft and Rollo.
