BBC Radio 2 DJ Chris Evans has turned most of his show over to Erasure this morning. After finding similarities between the vocals on the new Matt Cardle single and those by Andy Bell he rediscovered Erasure and played a couple of their songs. As a result the station received a flood of texts and calls praising Erasure causing Chris Evans to play not one but two medleys of Erasure hits, and having Andy Bell join him live on the telphone.
