Traffic calming

Temporary traffic lights at the junction of Ongar Road and Doddinghurst Road seemed to bring traffic in the centre of Brentwood to a virtual standstill yesterday; thankfully, however, the music on Phoenix always makes getting stuck in queues so much more bearable. Amongst the songs on this week’s show was another from the 80s that doesn’t get played too much these days, for which I gave the clue that this song involved a forgotten few days in the Netherlands.*

* The song that was Acceptable in the 80s was Lost Weekend by Lloyd Cole & the Commotions, the clue referring to a hotel in Amsterdam where the subject matter of the song took place
