On Monday Matters for the 22nd February, it’s been announced that the EU referendum will be held on Thursday June 23rd. But apparently, we Brits are 60 times more likely to talk about reality TV with our friends than discuss the merits of the EU.

The prime minister presented his case for Britain to stay in the EU today in the commons. Well have more on that later. Yesterday Boris Johnson said he’d campaign for Britain to leave the EU – we will hear his statement after 9pm.

And in the final hour Jason chats to Nigel Boulton – former detective and original designer of the multi-agency safeguarding hub (MASH) – which seeks to identify children and vulnerable adults at risk of abuse – including identifying children at risk of radicalisation.

The final hour kicks off with Pick Of The Number One Pops – songs that were number one on the 30th January from 1963, 1973, 1983 & 1993.

Also Jason speaks to Jamie Wyver from the RSPB about their #BigGardenBirdwatch

Under Pressure (A-Capella) – Only Vocals

David Bowie colour

One day in 1981 Bowie reunited with Queen in a recording studio in Switzerland, with the intention of doing vocals for the song “Cool Cat” .

David got bored and suggested writing a new song from scratch. According to Mark Blake, author of a biography of Freddie Mercury, they began a 24 hours marathon of wine and cocaine and ended up with this musical gem. This is incredible! Back in the day when auto-tune wasn’t needed. You’d never hear this from most ‘singers’ these days.
