Summers Here ...........Honest



Sunday June 29th 2008

 

Was your week good was it bad?????………I’d done Soul Inspired on Saturday (All white socks and talc!!!) and was therefore a little disorientated and Souled Up for a Sunday….Nevertheless I had decided that today our three hour feature would be about Summer! …started badly as Andrew was on a Stag weekend or something so it was four hours to begin with……..why…..well the longest day was on 21st June……..Euro 2008 is upon us and …….most importantly ……….Wimbledon…..Andy….Strawberries…..Cream and all that!!!!!!

 

I played

 

                        Summerwine                           Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazelwood

                        Summer in Dublin                    Bagatelle

                        Summer Holiday                      Cliff Richard……..well I played it where’s 

 the Champagne??????….eh?…eh?….eh?

                        Here Comes Summer               Jerry Keller

                        Here Comes the Summer         Undertones

                        Summer Breeze                       The Isley Brothers

 

7.30 and essential classics was The Ride of the Valkyries written by German Composer Richard Wagner. He lived from 1813 born in Leipzig Germany and died in 1883 in Venice Italy. This tune took him five years to write….c’mon Wylie where’s my Rolex???

 

 

As I had an extra hour this morning the local papers was a little more relaxed……all will change July 13th…..and I eventually finished my expanded collection at 10.15am……

 

8.30    was the Golden Year….not Hour….I wish…the random clues included….

 

February 13       Queen Elizabeth gave former New York City mayor Rudolph Giuliani an honorary knighthood.Later in June The ‘Party in the Palace took place at Buckingham Palace for Queen Elizabeth II’s Golden Jubilee celebrations.

 

January 1          Euro  notes and coins are issued in France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Greece, Finland, Luxembourg, Belgium, Austria, Ireland and in the Netherlands.

 

The tunes were

 

                        Oh Baby                                         Rhianna

                        The Girl all the Bad Guys Want                    Bowling for Soup

                        A Little less Conversation                  Elvis feat JLX

 

And the year was ………………………………………………………………………………………

 

 

 

 

 

 

………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

 

 

 

 

…………………………………….YES……………………………………………………

 

 

……………………………………YOU GUESSED CORRECTLY……………………

 

 

 

It was……………………………………………2002…….well done

 

 

Musical changing rooms involved Moby etc and reminded that Location Location Location was back on the telly…………anyway after seven hours on air this weekend my demeanour was still as good after three…honest..………..I’ll be back next Sunday for breakfast………with a competition to find the optimum time to boil an egg and a stern reminder……with a panic for me that it’s less than three weeks to the U2 thing ….and owning just three U2 singles…..joking…..I might be slaughtered………..anyway best wishes whilst I’m still around……and have you voted yet?????

 

 

 

 

I also played Glasvegas……Alex………..when they’re famous remember it Mr Powis!!!!!!!

 

 

Sunday Breakfast……………..ahead of the game again………………..

 

 

P.S. Some people at U2.com have issues with the songs we list on the voting page…….hey get with the programme……..If you’re a fan you’ll know what the tracks are …..if you don’t ZIP and BUTTON or otherwise you should’nt be here.

 

 

See you Sunday ………BGP…………Smelling of petrol????????

 

 

 

C U Soon!!!!!
