Radio 2 Top 20 April 15: Soul Survivor Charles Bradley Leaps Into The Top 5

Pete Morey

The number 1 song in the nation:

There's a new #1 in town and it is by Icelandic band Kaleo. The once performed their #1 hit "Way Down We Go" in a volcano. How Icelandic is that? Check it out...

This Week's Biggest Mover:

Up 10 places this week is The Screaming Eagle Of Soul, Mr Charles Bradley. His song "Ain't It A Sin" is at #5. It is taken from his third album "Changes" and if you're looking for an album that sounds good on vinyl this Record Store Day we can highly recommend this one!

One to watch:

Keep your eye on 17 year old Declan McKenna. He has a new entry on the chart at 18 with his song "Brazil" a sharp piece of commentary on sports money and politics in the shape of a three minute pop song. Clever!

The Odd Couple:

David Myles discusses his creative process with Producer Classified. David has a new entry on the chart this week at #20.
