Out with Classics....Sunday Breakfast gets HOT!!!!!!



Sunday July 6th 2008

 

I started the programme this week with Coldplay’s Viva La Vida from the CD, Album, Download that Sunday Breakfast had featured AGES ago…..Of course this was an introduction to today’s focus on our Top 20  Shows. Steve Mead is featuring Coldplay on the 2nd August. So…. Get voting at www.phoenixfm.com.  Before that in a panic in just two weeks I realised I’m doing U2 so once again to persuade you to vote I featured three tracks from their Christmas Bonus Album U218 Cynica… no I mean Singles (never before released???!!!)

 

Anyway the tunes were

 

                        Stuck in the moment and can I be bothered with the rest of the title?

 

                        The Saints Are Coming………with Green Day

 

                        Desire

 

I also featured among others that Disco Classic by the Rolling Stones called Miss You………..

 

At 7.30 I did ESSENTIAL ™ Classics!

 

Today this was  a piece by  Charles Camille Saint-Saëns born October 1835 and was composed in February 1886 while Saint-Saëns was vacationing in a small Austrian village

 

Saint-Saëns, apparently concerned that the piece was too frivolous and likely to harm his reputation as a serious composer, suppressed performances of it and only allowed one movement, Le Cygne, to be published in his lifetime. Only small private performances were given for close friends like Franz Liszt

 

The piece was

 

                        Carnival  of the Animals …..The Swan

 

Don’t Forget Classic Phoenix on Mondays 8pm with Richard Nott!!!!!

 

8.00 to 9.00 the papers with poor distribution were named and shamed……Don’t let it happen again!!!!!!

 

At 8.30 I did the Golden Year……

 

 

Clues were

 

January 4 - Citing executive privilege, U.S. President Richard Nixon refuses to surrender 500 tapes and documents which have been subpoenaed by the Senate Watergate Committee.

 

Abba  win the Eurovision Song Contest  in Brighton, England.

 

September 23– Ceefax is started by the BBC - one of the first public service information systems.

 

And The Tunes Were

 

                        Ace                                                      How Long

                        Paper Lace                                        Billy Don’t Be a Hero

                        Wings                                                  Band on the Run

 

 

And the year was ______________________________________________

 

 

 

1             9               7                 4

 

Did you guess………?

 

Ostensibly this week was the last of Musical Changing Rooms……….for Now!!!……Kirsty’s still thinking and as for that Grand Designs Bloke……..Anyway in an attempt to go out on a high I featured ELVIS……….Elvis……what?????? and HOUND DOG……….Houng Doggg is there an echo here……..here………here…….here anyway though it sounded more recent I played the 1953 original by  Willie Mae Big Mama Thornton from Atlantic Records……….Next week it’s all change so your turn to be stunned on Sunday….
