45 Revolutions per Minute does not believe in being limited to genres. 45rpm is not a ‘rock’ show, a ‘jazz’ show or an ‘ambient’ show and nor does it limit it’s song choices to these oversimplified classifications.

However, even a show as anarchic as this needs some rules so the following categories have been devised to help guide you through the listening experience.

Each week, the playlist features one song from each of the following categories:
