Thanks awfully, but we don't want you going to all that trouble on our behalf! An Oasis tribute, yet! OMG!(_8^(|)
No that's fine thanks ☺
Bruce eh? No wonder the boy is world class....I look forward to the rest of the lists. Does he use Dr. Dre headphones? I'd ban them from players along with the mobile phones. No respect.
Here you go, Norrie. Another one...John Terry’s complete Spotify pre-match playlist: Best Friend’s GirlDaddy CoolEbony and IvoryWhen I Kneed YouFerdinando

Tomorrow, some talk of Alexander and some of Hercules of Hector and Lysander but I reckon Donovan's Sunshine Superman deserves a mention of the Green Lantern!
Talking of heroes.Text from Gaie:"He was all right, but he was no Tom Petty."
Is the End Of The Line I wonder?
Poor Gaie!But I'm sure he won't back down.
Norrie, you're my hero ☺
What about "heroines"?Sexist theme! Sexist theme!
Very same observation as those presenting the introduction?
Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers at the Royal Albert Hall - I haven't enough superlatives to describe it. I nearly cried when they came on I was so thrilled to be there and yet it was also like seeing old friends. They played everything I'd have chosen to hear, they played it heart and soul and it was just, just perfect. A surprise for us was a guest spot with Steve Winwood. I had to leave before the encore, it's too far to walk back to Glasgow even when flying, but it didn't matter, they'd just played Running Down a Dream, the one I've always wanted to hear live. It was altogether just the best.
Did they do Oh Well?
Did Ken do "Happiness"?
That was the encore.
I mean, yes, they did 'Oh Well'
I think my most recent "perfect gig" was Bonnie Raitt at GRCHOr was it Mary Gauthier at Òran Mór?
Anither gem that'll nivvir get airplay...The Last Will & Testament of Jake Thackray
TP set list
Mind you, Michael Marra at the Strathclyde Suite of GRCH is a contender.
back in the days of GIO I thought a theme might be the one song you really, really wanted to hear live, and did it live up to expectations? - Running Down a Dream would have been mine for this, Cellar of Dreams from the Silencers, Charlie Darwin, the Low Anthem, Last Kiss, Joe B, and so on. What special song did Bonnie tap her dainty little feet to for you, SG?
Sky are supposed to be covering the Isle of Wight in 3D. Another chance to see your boy.
I've got the specs, do I need a 3D telly?
No, just close one eye.
You might not get answer you're looking for!
As John Prine says in his sad wee song Far From Me, "A question ain't really a question if you know the answer too.">8-D
Gaie,If I have to choose just one, (am I on Desert Island Discs? Coz Shakespeare disnae' push my buttons on paper. Thank God for Sir Kenneth Branagh), it'll have to be Bonnie's rendition of John Prine's Angel from Montgomery, accompanied by Phil Cunningham on squeezebox.
My hero came under attack from Craig Brown in the Mail yesterday.I of course rushed to his defence but it sems my comment was moderated.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-2162257/Dave-lee-Travis-Brainwashed-Hairy-Cornflake-.html
I'm afraid I'm on Craig Brown's side. It's difficult to imagine circumstances terrible enough to render DLT interesting.
Snooker on the radio?
I was thinking more of 15 years' house arrest.
Adam,If you like, you can leave a comment here.Cannae take to Craig Broon. No' as funny as he imagines himsel' tae be.
No me!It all finishes today so we get oor city back again.And we can all breathe easier (and more cleanly if it all works).
Aung San Suu Kyi always had time for DLT apparently.
Adam,Another opporchancity to vent your spleen here.
Aye, was it all worth it richt enuff.Still, we've got the Euros and England are still in with a chance.And I was thinking, when we get "The Henri Hannah Show" up and running, first guest presenter has to be HC DLT. We could then get the Burma Burd as guest producer and get a lot of kudos.
And the burma burds first song would be Damien rice's unplayed piano. I would have the legendary casey kasem as guest presenter. the repeats of his american hot forty countdowns from the 70's on Smooth 70's are along with Brian Matthews the best programmes on radio.
Smooth 70s???Never heard of it. I'll go and hae a look.
Adam,Nivvir mind Craig Brown. The Jewish Telegraph staff are delighted. Seems DLT is one of the Chosen DJs.
Adam,Click on CONFIDENTIAL then scroll down.
Morning y'all, what's happenin'?
Pure rainin', man!
I thought I'd wandered into Weather Watchers Anonymous.I though Tom Petty was good last night but fresh-faced the band are not. Tom reminded me of the description of the Archbishop of Canterbury - "a tramp looking through a hedge". Did you notice the tremor in his left hand? Apparently a 30 year old injury acting up.
He smashed his hand into a wall in temper while recording the Southern Accents album. Not looking good? Look at all the mud they'd to tramp through - well let me tell you, in South Kensington they looked damned fine to me.In fact I'm away to watch Running Down a Dream right now. Maybe I'll watch it again tomorrow.
Next time I'll fork out for the 3D set.
good idea. I'll send you the specs.
Is Paolo away on his holidays??
and Norribund the Blogmeister... It's Gabriel Time!
Naw no yet. I added to your DLT comment earlier.
Suppose, instead of listening to the wireless between six and eight o’clock one night, you set your i-pod to shuffle and then took a note of the music that was randomly selected, then compare the list to what was played that night on GIO. Obviously, you would think your i-pod’s random selection was a much better choice of music because you put it on there in the first place, but how would other bloggers’ random selections fare? And, if you were to put the bloggers’ selections in order of preference alongside the GIO selection, where do think the GIO selection would fit in?Assuming that the participating bloggers are representative of a cross section of the general listening public, and that the general listening public “choose the music” for GIO, you would expect the GIO playlist to land bang in the middle. Hmmmm……I don’t have an i-pod, but I have a juke-box I can set to random, so here’s my list from Thursday night.Most Likely You Go Your Way – Bob DylanDots Thots – Ozric TentaclesHeavenly Bank Account – Frank ZappaBitch – Rolling StonesBlack Friday – Steely DanClash City – The ClashRubberband – ZHorseface – Chuck E WeissYou Can’t Stop Rock & Roll – Twisted SisterExcuse Me Mister – John MartynBlackleg Miner – Richard ThompsonTill The Morning Comes – Grateful DeadAs I Roved Out – PlanxtyStepping Out – John Mayall’s BluesbreakersHong Kong Money – Dr FeelgoodWho Loves The Sun – Hafdis HuldTam Lin – Fairport ConventionSong For Insane Times – Kevin AyersSheriff Of Hong Kong – Captain BeefheartTrader John – Dr JohnThe Morning Fog – Kate BushFire Engine Passing With Bells Clanging – Soft MachineDancing With The Pixies – GongHere Comes That Man Again – Kirsty MacCollJack Shit George – Ian Dury And The BlockheadsDeer Stop – GoldfrappPrincess of The Street – the StranglersBirdnest Hair – QueenAdreeenaStang’s Swang – Stevie Ray VaughanUnfortunately I don’t know what BB played on Thursday, but I suspect the GIO playlist would end up being second bottom, with my list bottom because I have an even worse taste in music than Bryan Burnett (except in my view).I think this would be a highly scientific experiment and the results would be irrefutable if anybody can be arsed.
If anybody could be arsed, I would salute their irrefutability!
Adam supports naefootyability
If the bloggers are representative of the general public we're all in trouble.
I've done the first half, Fish...Viva La Vida - ColdplayReward - Teardrop ExplodesOverkill - Men at WorkBorn in the USA - Bruce SpringsteenLook of Love - ABCTown Called Malice - JamLost - ColdplayZoom - Fat Larry's BandLove Changes Everything - Climie FischerRoad To Hell - Chris Rea..and I'm thinking, "Bloody hell!
