I was delighted to have had the opportunity to sit in on The SUNDAY REPLAY again on Father’s Day.
We started with a current song from Young Lives and Human Again and then moved into the oldies proper with Bryan Ferry’s “Let’s Stick Together”; then it was back to 1968 for the “Son of Hickory Holler’s Tramp” by OC Smith. We then played The Pet Shop Boys version of the old Elvis Presley hit, “Always on my Mind.
We then went “Rocking All Over The World” with Status Quo and then it was back to school with Cat Stevens and “Remember the Days of the old Schoolyard. Neil Diamond was next out of the hat with his 1966 hit, “Cherry,Cherry” followed swiftly by Take That and Lulu with “Relight My Fire”.
Launching the next 30 minutes it was the one hit wonder “Isn’t it Time” from The Baby’s followed by The Temptations and “Ain’t too Proud to Beg” and Stevie Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered.
Whitney Houston was up next with “How Will I Know” taken off her 1985 debut album then with the theme from America’s Greatest Hero – “Believe it or Not” and The Moody Blues with “Your Wildest Dreams”. Winding up the first hour it was “Nathan Jones” by The Supremes.
Hot Chocolate’s “Everyone’s A Winner” launched the second hour and to prove that next up was Chairman of The Board with “Elmo James2 and “Gloria” by Laura Branigan.
We then moved on to visit “Nutbush City Limits” in the company of Ike & Tina Turner followed by a trip aboard the “City of New Orleans” with Arlo Guthrie. Winding up this half hour was Eternal with BeBe Wynans and “I Wanna be The Only One.
We went into the final leg of the show with Marvin Gaye and “Ain’t That Peculiar” followed by the 2009 song “Slice” by Five for Fighting. Two smooth songs for a Sunday afternoon followed – “Stainsby Girls” from Chris Rea and Eric Carmen’s “Make Me Lose Control”. The Four Tops followed with “Walk Away Renee” and KC & The Sunshine Band with “Baby Give it Up”.
“La Bamba” by Ritchie Valens dating back to 1958 and thus the oldest song in today’s REPLAY followed. Our final song today was “The One and Only” by Chesney Hawkes.
I had a ball playing this lot and hope you enjoyed these great oldies as well.
