Norrie had beaten me to it and I think The Jackson Fife is a bit weak.
Got to maintain standards.

No, it's simply that with some themes I can think of songs to suggest, with other themes I can't....

Rock Island - Jethro Tull
So is Islands the theme?
No man is an island - he's a peninsula.
Sorry - the young man came round with the medication trolley.

After a fantastic response from the bloggers with over 3 people contributing random playlists, I will now add GIO’s playlist (which is only 16 songs presumably interspersed with gibberish). David Bowie Heroes It Bites Calling All The Heroes The Selecter 3 Minute Hero Queen Flash The Kinks David Watts Lazlo Bane Superman Foo Fighters My Hero Bill Hayes The Ballad Of Davy Crockett Marvin Gaye Abraham, Martin and John The Libertines Time For Heroes Andy Stewart Scottish Soldier Bonnie Tyler Holding Out For A Hero Paper Lace Billy Don’t Be A Hero Enrique Iglesias Hero Electric Light Orchestra Wild West Hero The Stranglers No More HeroesThe data from the lists will now be input into the computer and be scientifically computed using the Galoot Colognum Simulation random forecasting model software.From this, we should be able to determine with 100% accuracy whether the GIO list is genuinely “you choose the music” or whether gullible listeners merely guess from a predetermined playlist, which is what I have been saying all along.Watch this space.
If anyone wants to replicate the authentic GIO experience I have mp3 files of hysterical giggling and inane comments about spaghetti.
Good to see Paper Lace in there.There's not enough Paper Lace on GIO.

What's this tae do wi islands?
Oh see what they did there, Andy Stewart and Davy Crockett, how eclectic. This is how the gibberish went: 'that's what I love about Get It On, where else would you hear The Libertines followed by Andy Stewart? Here's a text from BobontheB7408 who's having curried frog's legs for tea tonight. He's asking for The Stranglers 'No More Heroes'. That's really popular tonight, I think that's a must, Miss B don't you?' cue raucous laughter.
There is a Stewart Island but my research his nae turned up a Crockett Islet anywhere.....
Frogs legs? He must be famished.The Craic was good though
Is the BBC a charity for the unemployable?

Also with weeks worth of music on the old laptop and only two Dougie MacLean tracks, they both came up within 15 minutes of each other. What are the odds Paolo?
Sitting on my island in 30 degree C heat my thoughts turn to abscent friends... Maybe if the disc spinner (who after all is the more knowledgeable of the Beeb's unemployable" continues to reduce both content & quality he'll be released for his existing contract & get his own chat show... after all the former FUN runner is now a self confessed middle/long distance expert & with the Olympics an' all?
