8th January 2011 – from Stone Yard to Baker Street

Local author Frances Clamp talked about the history of the site that is now Stone Yard in Western Gardens, Brentwood. Frances joins Scott Ross every Tuesday afternoon on Phoenix FM between 2 and 3.

I paid tribute to Gerry Rafferty, who passed away on Tuesday, and referred to suggestions that Baker Street was a reflection of his own life.

My clues to the Stuck in a moment quiz were that when this song topped the US singles chart it made the artist the first one of this decade to have number ones in three consecutive decades; and that it was my favourite single of 2010 – the answer to be found somewhere on the Phoenix FM website!*

My cryptic Where am I? clue to a location somewhere in our area was “Is the school cook a captain?”*

Track listing:

Gnarls Barkley – Crazy
Kylie Minogue – Can’t get you out of my head
Sam & Dave – Soul man
Manic Street Preachers – Kevin Carter
Solu Music featuring Kimblee – Fade
Olly Murs – Thinking of me
Estelle feat. Kanye West – American boy
Starsailor – In the crossfire
McFly – Obviously
Melanie Fiona – Give it to me right
Martika – Toy soldiers
Katy Perry – Firework
Everything Everything – Photoshop handsome
Tim Berg – Seek bromance
Who – Pinball wizard
Charlotte Church – Logical world
Gerry Rafferty – Baker Street
Own City – Fireflies
Diana Ross – Chain reaction
Busted – Year 3000
Inna - Hot

* The answer to Stuck in a moment was OMG by Usher featuring Where am I? was Endeavour School, Brentwood, the clue being a reference to Captain Cook’s 18th century voyage of discovery to Australia and New Zealand on HMS Endeavour.
