Sunday's TOTD was something that Paddy O'Connell played. Cheered me right up!

I thought his SOTS on 2nd January, was one of the best I'd heard. Some cracking singles on there. Unfortunately, the playlist leaves a few out, as usual. About half of them, in this instance. Including these beauties and many more.


A Love Like Yours - Ike and Tina Turner.

Walk In My Shoes - Gladys Knight and the Pips

Like Walking In The Rain - The Ronettes

Goodbye to a horrible man and a pretty good record producer...

Funny you say some titles left off Raver as I had a look yesterday and thought it seemed somewhat shorter than usual! Sounded like one of the better ones though so will give it a listen.

I know they have a habit of leaving some out, because you've mentioned it more than once, H. That one only shows what was played in the first hour, which isn't good enough, is it? My point being, if someone got that page up and saw what was on offer, there's every chance they wouldn't bother, thus Tony B less lower ratings. Which seems to be important these days.

Just starting to listen now and noticed right at the top of the show Tony says 'Hope you've an hour to spare', then they only publish half the playlist......

Yes! I put that on again this morning and heard him say that. I didn't put two and two together, H. I just thought that being his programmes are pre-recorded these days, that he'd somehow got his shows mixed up and thought he was recording the Friday night one!

Paul O'Grady played Rita Coolidge's 'I'd Rather Leave While I'm In Love' which I can honestly say I've not heard in decades. Lovely track though.

The Delta Lady has a lovely voice. I remember a Johnnie Walker interview with her a few years ago. Rita is such an interesting woman. Must be the Cherokee blood. At the time, I almost bought her book on the strength of it. She pulled no punches, apparently.

Did you know that she composed the piano outro on the extended version of Layla? And didn't get a penny for it. Stitched up by Robert Stigwood, Clapton and Jim Gordon, who she was living with at the time. She also co-wrote Superstar, later recorded by The Carpenters, with Bonnie Bramlett and Leon Russell, but didn't get any credit for it until 1992. It's an unscrupulous and mysoginistic business, or was.

Her version of Superstar, on the Mad Dogs and Englishmen tour...
