Lucky Jim

If the audio stops playing, press stop and allow time for the stream to load.

Are you feeling lucky, punk? Chance would be a fine thing. So, here's 50 minutes of songs related to kismet, from the Shirley Bassey's big-band groove Spinning Wheel to the Lucky Number of former Hull resident Lene Lovich. She's been on the programme before, and on the Heart and Hand juke box for a decade, but Betty Davis is always worth another listen.
