I haven't heard a lot of radio today, too busy being out and about, but I do.love Groovin' With Mr Bloe that Tony played....(it was nice to hear Don't You Know by Butterscotch again, too, on his show ...

Good riposte to Tony about Sharapova's grunts from the traffic woman (?) just now... Laughing

Both good tracks Becky from a good chart

I notice Tony admitted that he does make mistakes correcting himself on the fact the chart currently being played is from 22 years ago rather than 21 as he first said - but then he immediately blotted his copybook when announcing the track by the Charlatans as 'The Only One I Knew'

Not quite a Duran Duran moment but he really should know the correct title Smile

And a Tony Blackburn track was played on Sounds Of The 60s this morning.

I've not heard any Radio 2 yet today, but I'm listening to yesterday's Pick Of The Pops and, for me, the track of yesterday might be 'Cottonfields' by The Beach Boys. One of their best, I think.

So far it's Neil Diamond's 'Robert E Lee' on EP's 2nd hour which is devoted to all things American for 4th July.

Take These Chains From My Heart - Ray Charles played on this morning's Breakfast.

It took me right back to '63, when I was 11, and it was a hit. I really hated it at the time so just goes to show how tastes can change! I'd just started to listen to Radio Luxembourg and couldn't understand how anyone could buy that instead of the Beatles, Gerry and the Pacemakers et al! Rolling Eyes

Wow, Helen. Like you, that lovely song (at least I came to love it - at the time it was "mums and dads music") evokes memories of mum listening to Two-way forces family favourites on the Light Programme while cooking Sunday dinner. Neither my brother and I were allowed to go out and play with the neighbours' kids because it was Sunday.............. no wonder I became a confirmed atheist at such an early age!

Another song that evokes similar memories in me is "Swinging on a Star" by................... who? (I've forgotten)

You're right, though. Who'd want to buy anything that wasn't by the Beatles, the Stones or any of the Mersey bands?

It was Big Dee Irwin on Swinging On A Star Colin!

We must have had similar upbringings as well as I wasn't allowed to play out on a Sunday either! Family Favourites was always on in our house too, I can still hear Jean Metcalfe's (O/H of Cliff Michelmore) voice!

There was a definite split in adult and teen music then, which sort of merged in the following years as I know my Mum came to like the Beatles and a lot of their contemporaries.

Yes, I too remember Jean Metcalfe's voice coming through on the line all the way from Cologne! I remember an old engineer from the BBC who used to work on links at Broadcasting House, and he used to tell us what a job it was ensuring that the quality of the line remained of a high enough quality to carry the return feed. They even (gosh!) had a second line on standby in case the first went down for some reason. Wasn't the show's theme music "With a song in my heart....."? Or am I confusing it with something else?

Very much so. Even then, there was something of a division between us young followers of the Beatles and our elder "teenagers" who preferred the music of the late 50s. My cousin Mike, who's now in his 60s, loved artists like Bobby Vee, Alma Cogan, Helen Shapiro, Guy Mitchell (I can remember looking through his record collection) and absolutely hated the Beatles invasion simply because they blew apart everything that he loved about the popular music scene in the late 50s and very early 60s. To this day, he really doesn't like the Beatles!

Ah, those happy and innocent days....

Smile

Another one from this morning's breakfast show was Sweet's 'Fox On The Run', from their post 'Chinnichap' period. That has to be my 'track of the day' so far. Yes, I enjoyed hearing the Ray Charles track too and I thought exactly the same about it reminding me of Two-Way Family Favourites! Other's that remind me of that show are 'I Get the Sweetest Feeling' by Jackie Wilson & a favourite of my dear late mother's 'Rambling Rose' by Nat King Cole. I guess that my sister & I were fortunate in that we were allowed to play outside on a Sunday. I can't imagine what we'd have been like otherwise!

In my case, it was because Evans hasn't been on that I've been listening! Ryan Tubridy may not be perfect, but he's far more bearable than Evans.
Isn't it Ironic that it was because he had to work on Fridays when he didn't want to, that eventually got Evans the sack from Radio 1, yet he's supposed to have been on holiday these last two weeks but I still have to avoid Friday's One Show (with due apologies to the lovely Alex Jones)

I'm out of the habit of watching The One Show on Fridays, too. In my opinion his presence on the show adds absolutely nothing at all, and I think Alex Jones must have the patience of a saint to put up with his inbuilt need to dominate everything that goes on during the show.

No need to worry Colin, I wouldn't dream of listening otherwise! As LEE said Ryan Tubridy has been on instead. He's not fantastic but is listenable and has played a few decent tracks. It's been good to have Deadly back doing the news as well.

He said this morning that he's back in August so at least another week of Breakfast listening to look forward to!

When I used to play keyboards in a covers band back in the mid seventies in Leicester my favourite track we used to play was 'Fox On The Run' (the Sweet version) but it was pretty scary at first as I didn't know the first thing about electronic synthesisers but it worked really well - we had a female vocalist who used to wear a Brian Connolly blonde wig and we also used to play quite a lot of stuff by Sparks as well as things like 'Son Of My Father' by Chicory Tip - with yet another lengthy synthesiser solo Shocked - happy days Very Happy

Sweet have some memories for me too - back in the Seventies we had a German exchange at school and the German boys all seemed to love The Sweet. My mum used to work with The Sweet's drummer's mother, so I was very popular as I was able to get the band's autographs for them. Smile

Compared to the "proper" bands I used to see in the early/mid 70s, Sweet was generally perceived as being utterly naff and "pop". A bunch of us got some free tickets to see a gig by The Sweet. I didn't dare tell anybody else for fear of ridicule. What surprised me was that were not only bloody loud but appeared to be technically competent as musicians.

It still took a few years for me to fess up about seeing them, though. They always looked naff on TOTP though - and still do!

Listen to most of the 'B' sides of Sweet singles from the early 70s and actually you might easily make the mistake of thinking you were listening to Led Zeppelin

Only the 'A'sides were considered 'naff' by some people - they were really just typical pop singles of the day

Oh yes - and when I was running the record label with my business partner in the mid 90s I found out that he was the person who actually taught Steve Priest to first play the guitar Smile

Following on from the mention of Beatles and Gerry and the Pacemakers yesterday. It's got to be How Do You Do It and if I'm allowed a second one, Can't Buy Me Love from the Beatles which were both played on Breakfast this morning.

I love (and much prefer) the original Beatles version of "How do you do"!

Yes it's good but rarely heard. Ryan is a big fan of the Beatles, he's played a few over the last fortnight, and when he sat in for Graham Norton last year he played a track a week from each of the Beatles' first 6 albums. From memory they were all superb tracks.

Bring Me Sunshine - Morecambe and Wise to close the Breakfast show this morning.

Apart from it being topical weatherwise, it always raises a smile when I hear Eric and Ernie!

Got to say I've enjoyed Ryan's music over the fortnight, maybe because he said thanks to Alan Boyd who was of course Wogan's producer.

How very true. Morecambe & Wise were always there to bring a smile to our faces even in times of adversity.

When I was young, one of my guinea pigs died. My dad consoled me by saying "Never mind, come and watch Morecambe & Wise on the telly. They'll take your mind off it."

And they did! Smile

PS: I remember watching the show on which The Beatles appeared. I was shocked by Eric's reference to Ringo as "Bongo" as he was marooned up there at the back of the set on his drum riser as the others came forward for a chat.

Track of the day for me on Friday 13th has to be the original version of 'I Think We're Alone Now' by Tommy James and the Shondelles played on the SW Show this afternoon

Whilst I also like the Tiffany cover it's rare that the original ever gets played these days to the point where many people seem to think that the 80's version by Tiffany was the original - sad really Sad

A few possibilities on today's Drivetime, believe it or not! One I heard was 'Back In Black' by AC / DC, which reminds me of when Stuart Maconie featured that album as his 'must have' on the original and much missed Critrical List Saturday evening show. One that might have been, had I heard it, was 'Rain' by Status Quo. Very appropriate at the moment!! I might have gone for 'I Love Rock 'n' roll' had it been this version by Arrows from my mis-spent youth in the 1970s! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8AT_Pbtyid0 But the well known version by Joan Jett that I heard will do I suppose! I did enjoy the not very often heard 'Kid Charlemagne' by Steely Dan on Jeremy Vine's show, bringing back memories of the great two week documentary about them that Richard Allinson narrated around the time of the release of their album Two Against Nature. Nice to see Asia getting some exposure on Ken Bruce's show.

Yes, I love the work of Becker & Fagen, and it's nice to hear songs other than "Ricky Don't Lose That Number" (from Pretzel Logic) being played. It's an all-too-rare occurrence, unfortunately.

I always liked Steely Dan but feel that Becker and Fagan's best work was their production of China Crisis' 'Flaunt The Imperfection' album in the mid 80s. It's a superb album.

Working outside today, I heard one of my favourite oldies on the radio and just had to stop and listen to the last note..
" Johnny Ace - Pledging My Love " later known as "Forever my Love" I believe... anyway, it's a great oldie from 1955.

This would be on my top 40 for sure.
Of course it wasn't on bland old Radio 2 but on KYA San Francisco.. Razz

Today's track or tracks as I'll be greedy and make it 2, they followed each other, are from Pete Waterman's Tracks of My Years today.

First was Deadward Stage from Doris Day, his first record and always brings back childhood memories and the westerns on TV.

Second track was She Loves You, my first favourite track from the Beatles.

And the first single I ever bought. It still sounds good now, despite the surface noise. When I remove it from its green Parlophone sleeve and place it on the turntable, it feels like I'm handling pop music history!

Pete Waterman's choices have been pretty good.

Indeed. Several years back, a friend of mine who's a freelance video cameraman shot one of a series of BBC documentaries about "stars and their hobbies" which featured Pete Waterman and his love of model railways. He said that Waterman's collection was superb. The crew ended up all playing with trains when they should have been working! He was, apparently, a most congenial host as well.
