RADIO disc jockey Stuart Henry lends his name to Stuart Henry's Pop Quiz, a program for music fans from Bellflower Software. The program is more than a simple quiz. There are 768 questions spread over six rounds and the computer chooses questions at random, Each round also has a mystery tune, and each time you answer a question correctly you have the opportunity to guess another note in the nine, The first player to guess the complete tune wins the round.

The questions start easy and gradually become more difficult, until round six provides some really esoteric teasers which will sort the genuine pop buffs from the rest of the herd. The questions cover a range of music styles, from the early 1960s, through glam-rock to punk and the new wave.

The response time for the questions and answers is fair, although it is a pity more use could not have been made of sound in the program, given that it is about music.

A fine quiz program and one that deserves to do well.
