We had a chilled music mix for the last day in January 2020. We celebrated the birthday of Roxy music guitarist Phil Manzanera, 69 today. At the party was Tom Schuman, keyboard player and composer with jazz group Spyro Gyra, 62 today. Terry Kath RIP, vocalist with Chicago would have been 74. Harry Wayne Casey, ‘KC’ from KC and the Sunshine band was 69. Chris from Harlow played Patrick from Ingatestone in guessing their ages. Patrick won 3-2. We also looked at the chart this week in 1971.
