Friday Night Extra 10.1.19 Thank you for the music.



Tonight we celebrated the legacy of music left by those who gave their final curtain call in 2019. Listeners commented that this was a real mix of very talented artists who had left a wonderful variety of music.

We began by amazing ourselves that yesterday was the birthday of Elvis Presley. If he had been with us, this would have been his 85th birthday. Both Patrick and Phyl e-mailed in asking for an Elvis track. Patrick asked specifically for his version of the Neil Sedaka song, Solitaire.

Elvis Presley – Solitaire

Walker brothers – Make it easy on yourself – for regular listener Susan who loves Scott Walker.

Scott Walker – The old man’s back again – from the album Scott , now seen asĀ  a classic.
