    7. Last friday's - not long after the news and before Strictly - It takes Two, BB said that Guilty Pleasures was suggested by DC. But I was busy making braised quails for tea and anxious not to miss the beginning of Strictly - It Takes Two, so maybe misheard.

      But you can be sure that even with Saint Andrew as a theme, they won't play Saint Andrew!

  9. Lets guess the playlist then:

    Eyes Without A Face
    I only Have Eyes For You
    Make My Brown Eyes Blue
    Baby's Got Blue Eyes
    and so on,

    but of course what they wont play is
    "Black-Eyed Boys" by Paper Lace and there just isnt enough Paper Lace on GIO as it is.

  12. Was listening to Pick of the Pops on Alison Again and the second chart was this week in 1978.
    Curiously, halfway through, these 4 were played back to back:

    Bicycle Race - Queen
    Hanging on the Telephone - Blondie
    Instant Replay - Dan Hartman
    Darlin - Frankie Miller

    Do you think BB had his Spider-Man bitten by a radioactive spider moment back in November 78?

    4. I always thought "Clackmannanshire Bridge" was far from snappy and gave a poor impression of the locals. The old bridge landed in Fife. The boundary must be very close.

  16. How is the St Andrew theme going to work then??

    ReplyDelete
  17. they'll dig out the crème de la crème of Scottish music to celebrate, starting with the Proclaimers, throwing in a bit of Jimmy Shand for eclecticism, a bit of Edi Reader murdering a Burns song and finishing with Dignity. Though it's hard to fathom how you could finish with dignity after that lot (excepting JS) and Miss B shrieking in the background.

  20. i'm not a flag waver myself and as st andrew is not exclusive to scotland it would be nice to think that there would be a more eclectic european flavour to the choices.....but they're wont be........i've gone right off a few of these scottish performers especially recently as they seem to be jumping on a bandwagon as if they have been promised the promised land..........i think its quite scary myself and have a contingency plan...flag waving...its a disaster waiting to happen.
