Moloney Sticks to The Script.....At Last!



Sunday 17th August 2008

 

I started with thanks to Kat Rudge who filled in on the 10th August whilst I was swanning about in France. Thanks again Kat. The first record this week was The Feeling and Turn It Up.

 

The featured band this week was Irish. They’re called the Script and I played the following tracks variously between 7am and 10

           

                        Before The Worst

                        Talk You down

                        The Man Who Can’t Be Moved (this is the current single)

                        We Cry

 

All from their album also called, originally, The Script.

 

Captain                           Echoes of Fashion

Sam Sparro                    21st Century Life

 

Lounge Lizards occurred just after the News Headlines at 7.30 and featured

 

                        Andy Williams                        Can’t Take My Eyes Off You

                        Matt Munro                             We’re Gonna Change the World

                        Stereophonics               Maybe Tomorrow

                        Little Jackie                  The World Should Revolve Around Me

                        Superman Lovers            Starlight

                        Teenagers                      Make It Happen

 

Between 8 and 9 I reviewed the local papers. The Headlines looked like this

 

            Billericay and Wickford Gazette             42 Years For Gun Massacre

            Brentwood Weekly News                      Mike Appalled By Racist Note

            Brentwood Gazette                               Siege!

            Yellow Advertiser                                  It’s Games On For Hadleigh

 

 

                        The Calling                    Our lives

                        Annie                            I know you’re girlfriend hates me

                        Keane                           Everybodys Changing

 

At 8.30 I did Essential™

 

This week to commemorate the fact that Elvis died 31 years ago yesterday (16th August). I also undertook that unless there was overwhelming support I would not play Danny Mirrors I remember Elvis Presly……….so vote now!

 

The essential Elvis tracks played were

 

                        It’s Now Or Never
