Now That's What I Call Music (Nostalgia)

Are there any good podcasts that go through the Now’s one by one?
(My search thusfar has mainly led to ones by people who seem to hate pop, which is an interesting choice)
 
There should be a "Now that's what I call a UK Chart peak at Number 41 in the 80's" compilation:

The Quick - The rhythm of the jungle
Prince - I wanna be your lover
Y & T - Mean Streak

for starters...

With a super unlucky Siouxsie & The Banshees on every disc, lol.

1980 - Israel (41)
1982 - Slowdive (41)
1987 - The Passenger (41)*
1988 - The Killing Jar (41)

* criminal. Should have been top 10.
 
Thank you @AcerBenII

All deserved better, but then if this is a hint of what Now That's What I Call A Number 41 Smash might look like, count me in!
 
Walk Like A Man on the NOW 1985 yearbook is not the single mix which does happen to be available seperately on the usual sites., not to my ears anyway.
Yeh Divine is definitely the wrong mix on this cd. Sheila E is the correct version. Chaka Khan This Is My Night is also the correct single version which is rare as it has only appeared on one other cd.
