Cool Very nice.

I'm no expert on punk-ish tunes but it does sound very derivative. Of what I can't quite put a name to...

That new one by Manic Street Preachers. 'Your Love Is Not Enough'? or something very similar.
'Our Velocity' by Maximo Park. This is one I've heard on 6 music. I've heard 'Backfired At The Disco' on there too and I agree, it is very good.

Billy Ocean - Red light spells danger. I downloaded this from iTunes ages ago but seeing the Top Gear boys do a version for children in need made me dig it out and play constantly.

See Wrighty played it back end of the week. Ooops, er...my name is Andy and I listened to Steve Wright........ Embarassed

I repent, I repent....I anm unclean but now I see the light!


Hey! I had a quiet moment in the training room, my delegates were doing a task on the PC's and I'd played my CD over a zillion times, thought I'd intro them to the wonders of R2....even though 'Love me' Stevie was on.


Yeah, not working is it.... Rolling Eyes

He'll be appearing on "The Big Quiz" opposite SantaFeMan before you can say "Factoid"! Laughing

(Actually, one of my colleagues at work has actually appeared on the quiz.... she keeps it extremely quiet!)

Andy-Why not introduce your students/delegates to the wonder of BFBS Radio 2 weekdays between 9-11am-much better than the output of BBC Radio 2.

Intervention by Arcade Fire! That church organ throughout really gets to me in a good way.

It reminded me of Parallels off Yes's 'Going For The One', though Jon Anderson would never use lines like 'working for the church while your family dies'.

Bit late with this one but REM's version of John Lennon's No 9 Dream is certainly growing on me.

What do others think?

Has anyone heard the new single from Shirley Bassey-can't remember the title but Richard Allinson played it recently and I heard it again on the radio again earlier today.

I think it's great-reminds me of a song from a James Bond film.

The video's on her myspace place http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoID=2017818206

You're right, it's very Bond. It has been played occasionally on R2 - its absence from the official playlist caused some discussion, and not a little moderation, on the MB over there Smile

WOW - sorry for the late reply here, Mark...took me a heck of a long time to recover from listening to SW.

Mark, I do tend to play the 'listen again' for the BFBS shows, quite funny to see people's reactions to the weather broadcasts...."Did he say, Basra??!!!" Laughing

Good work Andy-important to teach them good listening habits whilst they are young.

Hopefully you can advise "Richard's shows are some of the best and if you want to get a good music education probably not a better daily show to tune into etc".

It's the soundtrack to my day Smile

Still taking time to get used to the jingles though.

Andy-I really like the new jingle set-I'm sure they will grow on youin time or before they are refreshed again.

I do like the way Richard "talks back to the one from the lady with the sexy voice"-it always makes me smile-it reminds me a bit of that famous Dick Emery moment /saying "You are naughty but I do like you".

TTS-Like you I did not take to this REM version when I first heard it but the more I hear it the more it is growing on me.

Indeed it makes you think that the original by John Lennon is a very hard record to sing/recreate.

I don't think Radio 2 is playing ANY of my current favourite new tunes. Rolling Eyes

Kind of situation normal, really......

Been listening to a CD recently called Horizon by a young singer I discovered on Myspace called Matthew Jordan and one of my favourite songs of the moment is one of those tracks, "Eventually".
