This week’s show gave you a life mantra from The Psychedelic Furs, a synth classic from A Flock Of Seagulls, plus an anthem for the downtrodden from Paul Weller.
We recalled when Rainbow rocked like Spinal Tap, and when dear Dave Greenfield auditioned for The Doors. Also, when Todd Rundgren recorded a classic on his tod, and we saluted a masterpiece from The Dame.
We commemorated the 42nd anniversary of The Blues Brothers being released. Then celebrated Branden Flowers and Jimmy Somerville’s birthday with the same tune, before we remembered dear Judy Garland.
We also tested your lyrical knowledge on a song written by Ray Davies but performed by Mark E Smith, and in which year covers from Don McLean and the Fugees got to #1?
Tuesday night’s show had an atmosphere of its own. Unfortunately, it was of the tropospheric variety, which meant I was listening to a completely different show to the rest of you. Fortunately, you can listen to just our show again, by simply clicking on the link below.
