#44 | B*Witched

‘You’re not putting the domestos beside the chicken fillets thanks’

This week on Up To 90, we talk pine-nuts, B*Witched, pine-nuts, double denim, pine-nuts, fancy earrings, pine-nuts and much much more.

B*Witched were an Irish girl group who claimed to fight ‘like their Das as well’, had a habit of putting Donna Air in awkward positions, and just generally stormed the UK charts from 1997 to 2002. We chat the hits, the flops, selling albums, jealousies, head-wrecks, all-rounders and big reunions, but really this episode pivots around the big questions that nobody save us two pioneering ginger warriors are brave enough to ask: why are pine-nuts so expensive? What are our ears made out of? Why are teenagers flying to Zambia to build schools when they can’t even make their own beds? Why is Julie still mourning a ruler? Is the butterfly farm of her youth another imagined memory in her neurotic meanderings?

We also look at where the B*Witched girls are now and reminisce about positive ways in which parents used to communicate in the eighties.

If you are the Greg who broke Julie’s ruler in 1991 please get in touch at Twitter, Insta or Done Deal @upto90podcast. Please remember to download rather than casually listen as we want maximum commitment here and also that’s what counts on chart terms…who knew?<

*Edele, we apologize in advance for what’s about to happen here
