After the sad news of Terry Wogan this morning much has been said by many about the music he liked and introduced us to. I'm sure I won't be the only one to have more than a few well and not so well known tracks that remind me of the great man.

So I thought perhaps we could make up a list that would make a good compilation playlist. One of mine is Harry by Catherine Howe

Add yours as and when.

Listening to the 2 tribute shows this morning showed what great taste in music he had.
I wonder if a compilation could be released in aid of Macmillan cancer fund or something similar.

Many have been played on the radio today, such as 'Closest Thing To Crazy' by Katy Melua. This was a favourite of my dear late mother too. Another that I associate with Wake Up To wogan is 'Twisting By The Pool' by Dire Straits.

Lovely song, Ken finished his show with it on Monday and you could hear the emotion in his voice, it made me well up.

Sheer perfection

By the way,Toggy,I think your idea of a CD of Terry's favourite songs,for charity, is a really good one. Smile
