Here in the studio we love a good tune, but what we love even more is a good TV series. Combine the two and you get our September playlist, which is a collection of songs that you might recognise from your favourite TV shows!

Two worlds collide
We’re sure everyone is able to hum the intro to Eastenders or The A-Team, but when TV and mainstream music come together it can create a thing of beauty. It feels surprising that these mainstream tunes were written as songs in their own right and weren’t just created for the show they fit so well. The music can stay in your head forever and remind you of a great episode or an amazing scene, and that’s what we love about them.
