Welcome back to Don’t Alert the Stans!

For this week’s episode, Eden and Sope hold it down as a duo once again as Nic is absent. Kicking off the news agenda this week is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame who have officially announced that Tina Turner, Jay Z, LL Cool J, Clarence Avant and Gil-Scott Heron will be among their newest inductees (34:00). One week on from Sope singing the praises of Tank and his catalogue, the R&B veteran has revealed that he is going completely deaf in his right ear and starting to lose hearing in his left ear (42:05). Brimming with happiness, excitement and admiration, Sope offers an emphatic and comprehensive review of the latest VERZUS battle between legendary girl groups SWV and Xscape (46:08). Despite a lack of care from both Eden and Sope, they close out this week’s proceedings by discussing this year’s BRIT Awards. Delving into the logic behind those who won and lost (01:00:18) before taking an impassioned detour to discuss Leigh Anne Pinnock of Little Mix’s documentary ‘Race, Pop & Power’ which aired on BBC last week (01:09:36).
