Each episode, host Nina Brunner visits a well-known guest. The basis of their conversation is a “playlist” of eight songs, submitted by the guest. These songs have touched and accompanied them and are a part of their past. In conversation with Nina Brunner, the guests reveal the stories behind the songs.

A “profiling team” consisting of the three music experts Chris von Rohr, Nubya and Tim Renner study the playlist and together, they try to guess the person behind the songs. Amazingly quickly, it is often apparent whether the list was written by a politician or a musician.

Tonspur proves: it is possible to recognize a person when only seeing eight of their favourite songs.
