Spotlight Artist: Lionel Richie

Every weekday between 1 and 5pm we play tracks from our #spotlightartist. They’re an artist with a body of work which has stood the test of time. We’ll play the hits – but also some deep cuts. Listen ad-free through New Zealand via @tunein at

One of the most successful artists of the 1980s, Lionel Richie followed success in The Commodores with a massive 13 Top 10 hits in his 1981 – 1987 heyday. His first single from his first solo album (Truly) hit number 1 – we’ll kick the Spotlight Artist week off with this track on Monday. The hits kept on coming. We’ll play most of them, but as usual we’ll also play some less well known tracks.

Enjoy this legend through each afternoon this week! You can find out more about him on Wikipedia.
