Music by much-loved pop star Miro Žbirka

In this edition of the Sunday Music Show we profile Slovak pop star Miro Žbirka. The Prague-based singer, widely known by his nickname Meky, released his first album in Czechoslovakia in 1979 with the pop group Modus, a band with which he recorded now classic hits like Dievčatá, Drahá and others, before moving on to a successful solo career. Žbirka, whose mother was from Great Britain, also sings in English so we'll be hearing a variety of material, including one song from remastered material recorded in English in West Germany in the 1980s.
