On this week’s show we remembered The Wannadies at an Indie Disco, and when Neil Hannon did a live impression of a New Order drum machine. We announced the live tour for the Midwich Cuckoos, and applauded the new NHS campaign for taking care of your mental health.
We remembered dear Keef, how Squeeze got together, a classic track about dreams from Deacon Blue, and a classic album release from Pink Floyd. Also, as we’re all in awe of Roger Daltrey, we played five tracks that showcased his incredible vocal talent.
We got closer to a Soul Weekender with Frankie Beverly and Maze. Played a bonkers record from Bad Manners, A Beatles record sung by The Dame, and quizzed you on lyrics from Nickleback while simultaneously annoying music snobs everywhere.
Not forgetting when both The Sweet and Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel were both at #1 in the charts, the latter in West Ham’s FA Cup winning year. COYI! LLTB! GSB OUT!
