In this week’s show we recall how Malcom McClaren flogged a dead horse when Sid Vicious took over the vocals for the Pistols.
We played an Ian Dury classic that became proverb and a pseudonym for a West Ham cult hero, and something new from local Essex based songwriters Warwick & Young. We commemorated the last gig from The Faces and remembered John Denver, along with The Temptations co-founder Melvin Franklin plus a classic album release from The Dame.
We tested your musical knowledge on lyrics from David Byrne, and in what year did American soul singer Freda Payne & Midge Uuuuuuuurrrrreeee both have #1 records.
