3. Adam has broken big Brooooce news, the Boss is playing Rock In Rio next Sept. Who fancies a GIO Blog trip?

Never mind your chance is tonight to confess yet again with your songs about cheatin' hearts and two-timers!

I vote for the following track:

Bruce Springsteen - Brilliant Disgusie

Friday, 12 October 2012

Wednesday, 5 September 2012

Sad Song

It's going to be a bit of an Emotional Yo-Yo tonight as we ask you to explore your feelings and emotions. Songs that sing of happiness or those that are just plain down in the dumps, excited, delighted, joyful or sad - step onto the Get it On Emotional Rollercoaster and hold on tight.

Sad Song by Lou Reed is unlikely to get a play.

Thursday, 30 August 2012


What would you download with the £1 my tory chums have ensured that you are better of with.

Of course you could take that £1 to paolo and place it on the likely SPL Champions this season and with the return have £1.02 to squander.....

Or buy 25 penny chews....

Wednesday, 29 August 2012

Friday, 3 August 2012

Thursday, 2 August 2012

Red ring.....


For clarity the colours of the olympic rings are:

blue, yellow, black, green, and red
