Great to hear Sorrow by the Merseys this morning on the show. Also Matt Monro's first hit Portrait Of My Love.

It's still on so maybe more!

A couple of good novelty records on today, Frankfurter Sandwiches and Swingin' in the Rain.

Didn't know that Pipeline was a surfing term.

Delightful show again this morning. Bravo!

A stray thought--the other week Brian said that they have many more requests than they can include. How would it be if now and again, maybe 3 or 4 times per year, they did an all-request show to help feature some of the ones that are currently discarded? Is it worth suggesting, do you think?

Did Stuart Maconie leave his copy of Ray Cathode's 'Timebeat' out after Freakzone on 6 Music last week? He'd used it as an up to the news track.

This week it was on as an up to the news track on SOTS!

Hadn't heard Timebeat since it was a current single. Great nostalgia.

Next week's programme, with a long tribute to Eddie Cochran, sounds like a must--but then SOTS is essential listening 52 weeks a year.

I didn't get to hear very much of it this morning - did he really stray into the 70s to play the Who/Pistols/Macca covers of Eddie Cochran?

Just how many more times is Swern going to dig up that out-take of We're Through? Evil or Very Mad

Wouldn't The Move's covers of Somethin' Else and Weekend have been more appropriate? Not to mention the Blue Cheer cover of Summertime Blues.

The mention of covers at the end of the show was very brief and only to imply that Cochran's music has been carried on because of such covers.. he couldn't have mentioned them all, it was just a few seconds as a taster.
