Pop Master: the “3-in-10” questions, 2020

Following on from this piece from April 2019, here is a round-up of the “3-in-10” questions from this year’s editions of Pop Master. As I’m sure you know, Pop Master is the mid-morning quiz on the Ken Bruce Show on BBC Radio 2, and the final challenge for the winning contestant is this: in 10 seconds name 3 Top 75 UK hits by a specific act, like Abba, Adele or The Jam.

The first section (“The Questions”) simply lists the date of broadcast and the “3-in-10” act.

The second section (“The Answers”) also lists whether the contestant answered successfully (“Them”), whether I managed it while listening (“Me”) and a sample (at least 3) of the act’s UK hits.

This year I have also added a third section (“Revision”) to remind me of the acts that always seem to catch me out, like Beverley Knight, David Gray and Foo Fighters.

I updated last year’s piece every month or two, and ended up with a complete list of “3-in-10s” for the year. I hope to do the same in this piece.
