Another chilled selection from across the genres and decades for a summer Friday evening. I was delighted that we supplied some of the soundtrack for Maureen and Tony’s 60th wedding anniversary party in Harlow. We played their favourite song, ‘All I have to do is dream’ by the Everley brothers and they danced around the room.
Lighthouse Family – lifted.
Glenn Miller – Chattanooga Choo Choo – the first ever record awarded a gold disc in the USA for sales. This was in 1941. Requested by Derek for Phyl.
Eric Clapton – Wonderful tonight. Eric wrote this as he waited for Pattie Boyd to get ready for a party. Requested by Patrick.
Bon Jovi – Do what you can – from the album 2020 to be released in October.
Stacey Kent – Bullet Train – chosen as a track by poet and author Ian Adam when he was a guest on the show a few weeks back.
The Mammas – Move – chosen By Echo Keyboard player Ollie Lincoln when he was a guest. It was the Swedish entry for the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest, which was cancelled.
