Singer songwriter Quint Starkie joins Mike for the last episode of 'My Classic Album' in 2017! 

Dire Straits' self titled debut album is the subject of this month's podcast and together Mike and Quint explore just what made this album so special amongst a hugely punk orientated music scene in the late 1970s.

What are Quint's memories of hearing Dire Straits for the first time?

Why did Mark Knopfler initially have an issue with 'Sultans of Swing'?

How does a track like 'Lions' still resonate strongly in today's society?


PLUS Mike reviews 'Jupiter Calling', the latest album from the Corrs and reveals which classic album YOU chose as the My Classic Album of 2017.

All this and more on this edition of 'My Classic Album'.
