Spicks and SpecksSimply one of the great shows to come out of Melbourne and a favourite here at OM...

This addictive musical romp has people singing along to forgotten songs and dusting off their vinyl collections, Spicks and Specks every Wednesday's at 8.30pm.

Compared by one of Australia's most talented comedians Adam Hills joined by regular team captains, Triple J's Myf Warhurst and comedian Alan Brough together with personalities from the local and international entertainment industry.

Pitted against each other, the teams are on a journey to discover who knows the most about the music world and who can have the most fun. From the guitar twang of Country to the heavy bass of Hip Hop, no musical genre will be overlooked as our teams seek to answer a volley of questions and perform sometimes outrageous tasks, whether it be finding the connection between Brahms and the Tango, or tossing televisions through a hotel room window.

Video clips, album covers and song lists - dressing up, re-enacting and stage diving..Drawing on the talents of the teams and the wit of the host, Spicks and Specks will enlighten and entertain - and expose the world of music like never before.
