Songs With Choirs

Funnily enough i am not too keen on choirs....the choir at the Gram Parsons Tribute Night were truly awful to my ears but every single review or comment I have seen have said they were wonderful so what do I know...

Monday, 21 October 2013

Has Glen inspired a theme

After his chat about being a Gradfather the theme is musical advice from Grannies and Grandpas. Presumably the advice is turn that racket down and get a haircut

Vital Signs

If you are not in Birmingham taking good photos of trees and skyscrapers then pop along to GIO and post your suggestions on vital signs. I think these are breathing, blood still present and a heart beating to move said blood round body. Oh and of course brain activity (except on f/b)

We are a Grandfather

Congratulatiosn Glen

Fountain Of Sorrow as above Jackson Browne

etc etc etc

Dull dull dull

Imagine playing I'll Be Your baby Tonight yet again over the excellent suggestion of Baby Stop Crying.

No matter I bounce back with the observation that Bryan celebrates musical youths, from teen idols like Justin Bieber to the young Scot with the big voice, Lulu.

Blog Apology

I have noticed there is a spam section which I should have been checking. There were quite a few posts in there and obviously too late to post them now.

My apologies if you think I was moderating the blog - except I might if anyone posts under my name again.

Wednesday, 26 June 2013

Brooooooce - Jungleland

Pretty much anything over 2:59 is probably considered long these days

Monday, 10 June 2013

Thursday, 6 June 2013

No charge!

Gives us songs about the things that money cannot buy....I predict songs about love from your partner, kids ( queue more TD chat), cats, dogs, radio etc.

Tuesday, 4 June 2013

Trendy mums and dads

Anyone else apart from Julie all trendy and discovering bands through TD or TS or TGW

Friday, 31 May 2013

One of our crew has family affected by this issue.

Let's Dance

Oh and do not forget to put on your red shoes. Thank you.

Glen this should bring back memories of a wee soft shoe shuffle in the Locarno?

UPDATE Check these out from Adam!

Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle like a ton of lead
Wiggle—you can raise the dead

What other meaningful Bob Dylan lyrics can you list?

My old man said follow the van

Not Van The Man....removal van.

Oh never mind..... if you have ever moved house. Not that we had a house we lived in a hedge. I know we were lucky to have a hedge as Glen has to sleep in a hollow in the ground. Mind you lucky he had a hollow DC had to sleep suspended from Pitenweem Pier with a rope round his waist. A pier! Madmac would have given his right arm for a pier he had to sleep on the abutments to teh Erskine Bridge...etc.

Yes are you in your sixties (or older like some visitors here)?

If so post your memories of listening to Athlone, Stars Of Jazz, AFM, Luxembourg etc. Or send direct to Bryan Burnette.

I will be suggesting Van In The Days Before Rock n Roll. But I will be suprised if it gets a play. This is not the same as Julies regular posts along the lines of "I ask for this a hundred times you never play my stuff etc etc". I really doubt it will get played (too long).

The busiest restaurant in the world...

How many folk did Brooooce and Bono buy dinner and drinks for that night in Dublin. Hundreds I reckon.

Anyway who else would you not recognise standing at the bar with Bono....

Bowie always puts a real effort into getting his backing vocals sounding great on his albums.

Wednesday, 6 February 2013


Yes tonight the theme is about luck - and that is one city where you need to have your luck in.

Tonights theme is all about money. Not store vouchers...though if you need HMV vouchers please contact G Miller esq.

Monday, 14 January 2013


notes. It actually is.

Bowie dioes a great soul track called After Today on the Young Americans but hits a wrong note or lyric whatever and they didnt bother going back and fixing it. Great track too, real pity.

My Death

Not a very cheery song and a less than ideal ending. What songs are grim? A fairly upbeat theme for the New Year....

Thursday, 10 January 2013

There's a place for us


Yes you can select your favoooooooooooooooourite song from the musicals!

Make an orderly queue.....
