Christian O'Connell's 10 Grand Time Machine

Radio's toughest competition is back, and there's another £10,000 to be won...

The Christian O'Connell Breakfast Show is one show with seven playlists.

If you love Absolute 80s, Absolute Radio 90s or any of our stations you can listen to the show with your favourite music when you listen on digital radio or through the Absolute Radio app.

Each morning, Christian is once again firing up his Ten Grand Time Machine to play you an incredibly short clip featuring a fragment of a song from each of our seven radio stations - from Absolute Radio 60s to 00s, plus Absolute Classic Rock and Absolute Radio. If you're the first person to identify each song and artist, you could win £10,000!

Be warned though, the clip is VERY short. We mean it when we say this is radio's toughest competition...

Listen to The Christian O'Connell Breakfast Show each weekday morning and call us on 0330 123 1215 when you hear us open the lines to play!
