REM?......Are You Still Asleep...It's 4 in the Morning!!



Sunday 7th September 2008

 

A confusion of records started the programme today as I struggled with (a.)Myself......Wake up Moloney.....Perhaps I should use energy drinks......and

(b.) IT issues (this was probably also me but being me I'm not admitting to it and therefore it must be those darned computers.....you know the feeling.....

at work.....you spent an hour writing it.....it disappears....did you save it????.....Nah. I reckon there is a parallel universe where all the stuff you nearly finished

 and all the stuff you intended to save on your computer exists. Perhaps there there (if you know what I mean) are people who are happy with that, people who

 refuse under any circumstances to queue for example (Life's too short)............Where there aren't any credit crunches.....who needs all that STUFF??????.......

Ouch!!!!!!!....reality has bitten back to Sunday Morning. I featured this morning a band I'd travelled over land and water by many modes of transport...

.not Rickshaw....to see a couple of weeks ago.....REM....Their new album (DDDDdownload, CD,....I don't think it's on vinly!!!!) is called Accelerate.

 

The Tracks Were

 

Supernatural Superserious

Redhead Walking

Accelerate

 

By the time I caught my breath and frankly got my act together it was 7.30 and that means…………NO!!!!!!….the news headlines are first then…….

 

Lounge Lizards

 

Today This Consisted of ………….

 

Tony Bennett                             I Left My Heart In San Francisco

 

And

 

Perry Como                              And I Love You So

 

Onwards to 8 am and an in depth look at what’s in the local news through the eyes of our local papers.

 

The main stories this week were

 

Brentwod Weekly News                                     Brentwood  Biker Dies After Smash

                                                                        Amazing…..Brentwood Theatre

Brenwood Gazette                                             Sex Shame At Dry cleaners

                                                                        Chapel Spire Just A Fancy

Essex Enquirer                                                  Green Taxes Scam

This Is Total Essex                                            Surgeons team up for operation

Billericay and Wickford Gazette                          Poison Kills Big Boat Race

 

 

 

 

 

 

8.30        I did Essential………..Country and Western……not having done it before the Tune played was Faron Young singing Four In the Morning. Apparently he had the song written following a serious accident which among other things spilt his tongue. This meant he was not able to produce the ‘s’ sound easily. Therefore this song avoids it……pretty much. This also put me in mind of Prefab Sprout……..indie darlings of the mid eighties……..Why?…….well they did a song ….and we played it called ‘You give me Faron Young Four In the Morning’

 

All in all another classic ESSENTIAL….I reckon!!!

 

9.0          The Golden Year

 

Tunes were

 

Starland Vocal Band                              Afternoon Delight

Rod Stewart                                          The Killing of Georgie

Tavares                                     Heaven Must be Missing an Angel

 

And Random Clues

 

The Scottish Labour Party was formed

 

First recognised outbreak of Legionaires Deiease

 

First Commercial Concord Flight

 

Queen sends first royal e-mail and Apple formed

 

Harold Wilson Resigns

 

Soweto riots begin

 

U2 Formed and heatwave in the UK

 

 

 

And The Year Was

 

 

              1            9            7            6

 

So…………Don’t forget that Sunday Breakfast is back…..Sunday ……..strangely …..7 to 10 am ……also don’t forget to vote for the Stereophonics Top 20 at www.phoenixfm.com…..it’s coming sooner than you think………..October 25th this year!!!!!!….e-mail me too if you like….that’s radio@phoenixfm.com………See you Sunday.

 

 

Cheers

 

James
