Ever wanted to know why Carl Frampton bought Barbie Girl by Aqua? How Holly Hamilton is scarred by the Spice Girls? And why Colin Murray simply can’t listen to “Have I Told You Lately” by Van Morrison?
Then BBC Radio Ulster’s brand new six-part series, Criminal Records, is the one for you.
Beginning on Sunday, October 10, at 6.30pm, Criminal Records is Desert Island Discs in reverse.
It’s a light-hearted comedy chat show where guests get to choose their favourite “worst” records.
Hosted by comedian Tim McGarry, Criminal Records is a celebrity chat show with a difference. Instead of guests talking about music they love Tim wants to discover the songs his guests can’t stand, the tunes that make them want to scream and records that are so bad in their opinion they are actually criminal.
As Tim explains: “It’s not a show with bad music, it’s a show about different musical tastes where my guests get to let off steam, talk about what they hate and stimulate the endless debates about what constitutes good and bad music.”
Tim has sat down with boxing legend Carl Frampton, country music queen Philomena Begley, Peaky Blinders star Packy Lee, TV presenter Holly Hamilton, NI football captain Marissa Callaghan, and broadcaster Colin Murray.
He has trawled through their record collections and found out all the horrors
that lurk in their musical history.
Find out their worst childhood records, the most embarrassing records they bought, the songs that they hate to hear and the worst gigs they ever attended.
It’s all in the worst possible taste!
