Feelgood Saturday 20th November 2010

Jim Devlin joined me live this morning from a very noisy Billericay Library, which was hosting the launch of the Billericay Community Archive. Jim had popped into the studio last week to talk about this exciting project, which has already attracted a lot of attention from people far and wide – including Warwick University Professor Wynford Grant, founder of the Billericay Observer when he was a boy in the 1960s, who travelled to Billericay especially for the launch!

My clues to the Stuck in a moment quiz were that it was a 1987 hit for a group originally from the Isle of Wight, and that Graeme Holiday – presenter of Phoenix FM’s Jazz Funk Tuesdays – should know the answer!*

My cryptic Where am I? clue to a location somewhere in our area was “This is a place for young optimists,” with the hint that a song which included the name of this place featured in a controversial 70s film.*

Track listing:

Meck featuring Leo Sayer – Thunder in my heart again
Lauryn Hill – Ex
Alanis Morissette – Ironic
Kinks – Waterloo sunset
EMF – Unbelievable
Beady Eye – Bring the light
Rihanna – Rude boy
Manfred Mann – Pretty flamingo
Kylie Minogue – Better than today
Streets – Fit but you know it
JoJo – Leave (get out)
Britney Spears – Oops!... I did it again
Paramore – Playing God
Marc Almond featuring Gene Pitney – Something’s gotten hold of my heart
Pink – Raise a glass
Supremes – Stop in the name of love
Nelly – Just a dream
Santana – Smooth
Louis Armstrong - We Have All The Time In The World
Bananarama - Preacher Man
Mike & the Mechanics – All I need is a miracle

*The answer to Stuck in a moment was Running in the family by Level 42. Where am I? was Brightside Primary School in Billericay, the song Always look on the bright side of life featuring in Monty Python’s Life of Brian.
