We’re up to the letter Q in Brainwaves A to Z, the special series of the show where we play only songs or bands that begin with a certain letter of the alphabet. There were surprisingly few Q bands, so the show will focus on Q songs: including a quesadilla, a quiet little place, some quail and dumplings and a bunch of queens: Elvis, misery, savages and Denmark. (And yes, a few songs from a certain Q band called Queen…)
