This week’s show cut Neil Diamond off in his prime, and bemoaned the lack of an organic buzz in both today’s football and music scene.
We recalled when the Sex Pistols held their own Jubilee party on the Thames, and what happened when the police gate-crashed it. Plus when Neil Hannon shoe horned Jeff Goldblum into a song lyric.
We remembered dear Fletch, Prince and James Brown’s funky drummer and when Eddy Grant owned the Notting Hill carnival. Plus we celebrated Boz Scaggs and Gandalf’s birthday and The Dame releasing a classic album.
We also tested your lyrical knowledge on a song performed by Sharon, and in which year T.Rex and Madness had their last #1 records?
