Unnatural Selection - Thursday 30th September 2010

Week 7 - lucky for some!  There was a Double Shot from Arcade Fire, but I chickened out of another by Gong, just treating the ears of Brentwood and Billericay to 7 minutes 42 seconds of one tune instead.  I had 'Expand My Mind' suggestions from James, Coach Mahaffey and William respectively, and I chose Karen O as my Token Female, singing in the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

After a couple of technical hitches, I was left with airtime to fill, which was ably carried out with suggestions from our lovely listeners.

Insect Of The Week was the very popular, but apparently smelly, Earwig.

The tracklisting for the show was thus:

The Fratellis - Chelsea Dagger
The Bees - A Minha Menina
REM - Losing My Religion
Vampire Weekend - A-Punk
Graham Coxon - Freaking Out
Arcade Fire - Ready To Start
Arcade Fire - The Suburbs

Veruca Salt - Volcano Girls (Expand My Mind part 1)

The Beatles - Come Together
Bryan Ferry - Let's Stick Together
Prodigy - Firestarter

Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Gold Lion (Token Female - Karen O)

Ian Dury and The Blockheads - Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick

The James Gang - Funk 49 (Expand My Mind part 2)

Grandaddy - He's Simple, He's Dumb, He's The Pilot
Kaiser Chiefs - Ruby

Grizzly Bear - Deep Blue Sea (Expand My Mind part 3)

Ultravox - Vienna
Meatloaf - Bat Out Of Hell
Jimi Hendrix - Purple Haze

Insect Of The Week - The Earwig

Queens Of The Stone Age - 3's and 7's
Billy Idol - White Wedding
Gong - Cat In Clark's Shoes
The Flaming Lips - Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots Pt. 1
