UK Roxette fans have good news this week. Roxette’s single ‘She’s Got Nothing On (But The Radio)’ has made it to the exclusive A-List on BBC’s Radio 2 which is absolutely fantastic news since Radio 2 is perhaps one of the biggest national radio stations in the country.

The playlist contains about 30 tracks which are then divided into three different levels the A list, which receive the most plays, about 20 each week, the B list which gets around 10 plays and the C list which receives around 5 plays.
