By Appointment to Her Majesty -
Queen Popplastic!
Broadcasters of fine pop!

Probably the best radio station in the world!

I discovered this radio station in Latvia during the Eurovision Song Contest in Riga (2003) - and what a station it is!

The play-list reads like the who's who of plastic pop. Nothing it would seem is too cheesy or trashy to be played. Whats more it's played everywhere over there, it doesn't matter where you are they'll be playing it, hotels, shops, taxis, bars - everywhere!

Here's just a sample of a day at Radio Skonto . . .

TTAWAN - Hands Up (Give Me Your Heart)
Bucks Fizz - Land of Make Believe
Tight Fit - Fantasy Island
Black Lace - Agadoo
New Found Glory - The Never Ending Story
Modern Talking - Brother Louie
Friends - Listen to your Heartbeat
Fancy (who?) - Flames of Love

it's like Camp Attack on a Friday night and you're the DJ!

You just can't mention Modern Talking and Brother Louie without dipping in...

Brother Louie - Modern Talking

Aren't they just an uglier version of Wham with longer hair?!
