Dusty V Duffy!!!

Sunday May 11th 2008


I started Sunday Breakfast this week with the Feeling then ran into my three hour feature which instead of playing one record every half hour this week involved a sing off. The contestants were Dusty Springfield and Duffy!!!!! Who have on more than one occasion been compared. The tunes I played were


Dusty Springfield                                       You Don’t Have to Say I Love You

Duffy                                                              Warwick Avenue


Dusty Springfield                                       I Only Want To Be With You

Duffy                                                              Mercy


Dusty Springfield                                       In Private

Duffy                                                              Stepping Stone



And the winner was ………… for me a draw in different ways!!!!!!!! I like them both.


7.30 Saw Essential Classics which this week featured Georges Bizet the composer of Carmen. Among the essential facts were………


Carmen written in 1875 is Bizet’s best known work and is based on a novella of the same title written in 1846 by Prosper Merimee. Carmen was not initially well received but praise for it eventually came from well known contemporaries including Debussy. Carmen has since become one of the most popular works in the entire operatic repertoire. However Bizet did not live to see its success as he died from a heart attack at the age of 36.


I played the Prelude from Carmen.



8.00 to 9.00 saw me review the local ( weekly papers )


Then in a completely…… Indiana Jones Moment ………the 8.30 feature what’s that year became ‘A Night In the Museum’ and ‘ Grumpy Old Men’ rolled into one as I featured the music of 1962!!!!!!


 The tunes were


Susan Maugham                                           Bobbys Girl

The Tornadoes                                             Telstar

The Beatles                                                   Love Me Do


And Clues Included


February saw the Sunday Times become the first paper to print a colour supplement.


AT&T's Telstar, the world's first commercial communications satelite, is launched into orbit, and activated the next day relaying the first live trans-Atlantic television  signal

September 15 - The Beatles are signed by Parlophone Records.Shortly afterwards the New Musical Express a British music magazine, publishes a story about two 13-year-old schoolgirls, Sue and Mary, releasing a disc on Decca and adds "A Liverpool group, The Beatles have recorded 'Love Me Do' for Parlophone Records, set for October 5 release


At 9am I did Musical Changing Rooms the wrong way ‘round allowing me to play AKON and LONELY before pursuing Bobby Vinton ( Biggest Hit of the 90’s probably Blue Velvet!!!!!!!!!!) for crimes against music for his rendition of Mr Lonely………….This could start a trend.



This week I have to cover one hour for Andrew ……………Rachel’s also in the same boat……….. Obviously not literally………What to Do ???………..

When I covered for Tom and Anna I kept the same format………….Sunday……..Gardening……..PANIC!!!!!!!……..Find the Outcome in three different languages only with me James on Sunday Breakfast on or on  98 Megathingys in Brentwood, Billericay, Shenfield, Hutton, Pilgrims Hatch


See U Sunday Then!!!!!!
