I find W.O.L.D. almost unbearably moving. And Beach Baby is one of the best singles evah, fact.

LF Barfe said...

He can always choose 'Pop Muzik' by M if he wants to get a quarter of Level 42 in by the back door. Oh, and Wally Badarou. For my own part, I spent an hour last week on BBC Radio Norfolk talking about 'English Settlement' by XTC, and inviting listener contributions of an amusing or nostalgic nature - "Yacht Dance was playing the first time I got tops, Roy". Not one caller. Nada.

I enjoyed last night's show, or what I heard of it after my wi-fi decided to start playing up halfway through.

Have you seen this?

Terrible name, but I love the tracklisting. Half the songs are ones I picked when I did the '70s show.

Five-Centres said...

Gary Lewis and the Playboys - did it have to wait until the 70s to be a hit here?

Matthew Rudd said...

It did indeed - 1975, nine years after reaching the charts in the USA.

LF Barfe said...

Chris, I was having trouble with my wi-fi today. I eventually isolated it to interference from the baby monitor.
