Brentwood, 12.30am: 7°C, overcast clouds

Off The Record / 10-12pm / 5th November


On this week’s show we made subtle references to Bonfire Night with our record titles and then summoned up the spirit of Dolly Parton using a Springsteen album track. We went back to the tribal days of music and football with The Specials and celebrated John Lydon for being…well Johnny Rotten. We mourned the loss of Mike Score’s hair, admired Jonny Greenwood’s barnet, celebrated Art Garfunkel’s birthday and remembered Nat King Cole and Link Wray. We also rock with Midwich Cuckoo. Plus we guessed lyrics from Hot Chocolate and tested your chart knowledge on what year did The Beautiful South and the beautiful David Cassidy both enjoy #1 records?

All in all it was another rocket of a show, that went off with a bang. Click here to listen to it if you missed it:
