The music of the 1990's - grunge, hip-hop, alternative, indie, trip-hop, dance music. We might fondly recall Everything But The Girl's club hits, the rise of techno and drum'n'bass into the mainstream and of course Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Smashing Pumpkins. But none of that was really happening at the turn of the new decade. We said goodbye to the 1980's but they held on tight. Simon Sweetman joins us to remind us what we were listening to at the very start of the 1990's - which was thirty years ago.
