Ken Bruce sets a new PopMaster quiz record

Ken Bruce has taken part in his PopMaster quiz as a contestant and managed to set a new record.

On the night when BBC Radio 2’s ‘Friday Night is Music Night’ celebrated the Guinness World Record 60th Anniversary, Ken Bruce was able to recognise 13 ABBA songs played in a minute, by Swedish pianist Robert Wells.

Ken Bruce says: “What a night. A new Guinness World Record has been set with some fantastic renditions of ABBA from Robert Wells on the piano. We did it, and I’ve got to say you do feel the pressure when the clock is ticking, but that makes it all the more exciting. I’m used to asking the questions on my Radio 2 ‘PopMaster’ quiz, but the tables have turned this evening. Now I know how it feels.”

Without being able to see each other throughout the challenge, Ken Bruce and Robert Wells worked together to set a new Guinness World Record during this live programme.

Talking about the moment itself, Robert says: “I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge, especially as I’ve never done anything like this before. And now I’ve helped to set a new Guinness World Record, which is a great honour because ABBA is one of my all-time favourite bands. I couldn’t have done it without Ken Bruce, so well done to him too.”
