QUIZ: PopMaster

MUSIC QUIZ: PopMaster – April 7th, 2020

What Is PopMaster?

PopMaster is a popular music quiz on the Ken Bruce Show on BBC Radio 2 that has aired on weekday mornings since 16th February 1998.

Here at Talk About Pop Music we love pop and we love quizzes so we will be sharing this on a daily basis.

The Rules

Each contestant is asked ten questions based on popular music from the 1950s through to the present day. Correct answers to the questions are worth three points, other than for the third, sixth and ninth “bonus” questions on a topic chosen by the contestant, from two options offered by the host prior to the start of the quiz. The bonus questions involve listening to a snippet of music and, if answered correctly, are worth six points. There is, therefore, a maximum total of thirty-nine points on offer.

The winning contestant then goes on to play “Three-in-Ten”. In this part of the quiz they have ten seconds to name three UK Singles Chart hits for a particular artist or group named by Ken Bruce.

Simple, right? Why don’t you have a listen and see how many points you get? Be honest, of course and let us know!

In months to come we will be creating our own Talk About Pop Music scoreboard and there might even be the chance to win weekly prizes – watch this space.

I’m Steve and live in a village called Alford (home of Emeli Sande & birthplace of the Aberdeen Angus cow) in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. I currently work in the IT industry (yawn) but I do create the best playlists ever and pump them out constantly. Everyday is a Eurovision day with me and I'm still stuck in the 80s sometimes!
