Scotland Will Flourish ~ The Corriestwee enough?
Subtle innuendos follow..
You need the patience of angels here (;-)
None obviously (;-)
Paper Lace and Rolf shoo ins (or is Rolf still on the naughty step?).Anything by The Goodies - even the theme would be a treat!
I am adamant that I'm not requesting Billy Don't Be A Hero!
Billy's third upstairs at Erik's
It had to be him too!!
Rolf, Travis and Kenny Barlow are up before the beak today. Perhaps they'll be exonerated. Rolf still has charges to face about images.One of Travis's offences allegedly took place on screen. His trial could take six weeks. The judge is worried the jury think Ken Barlow is a real person.

What are the songs that sum up the 1970s for you - glam, disco or punk?Art-school, Prog, Acid Rock, Heavy Metal & Funk: a few alternatives
You can only have one alternative.
Happy new year all. Is the programme still going? what are the themes? My annual contribution must be about due
Happy New Year to you too! Tonight's theme is the songs that sum up the 1970s. Should be good (;-)
FFS Billy. Can you narrow it down a bit. How long's the show these days?
Adam, Can you mind of this from your favourite long hot summer of the 70shttp://youtu.be/-6bv4n6eidI
All the best for 2014 PP
It sounds familiar but I dont think I've heard it before. Did it chart in the UK?
Don't think so. Did in the US of A. jeff Cooper on Radio Clyde used to play it. Perhaps radio forth didn't
Mebbe.I only used to listen to Jay Crawford's Edniburgh Rock on Forth and that wouldn't have been played on that.
I can guarantee that I won't be requesting the same song as EZ tonight!
Have you seen some of the requests on there! Bloody hell.Here DC, somebody has even asked for your night off tune.
FFS see what you mean...
C'way then, you kain I don't frequent that dark side wey o doin.Is it New York Groove by ony chance?
A cheep cheep shot I say
Choose one song to represent a decade - what sort of a daft idea is that? An then they end up with a playlist that came straight from Now That's What I Call Total Cliche. Every one a chart single, when anyone who cared about music was listening to albums. Anyone listened to the Dark, Dark Bright yet? It's my absolute favourite this week and even walking to work in the rain is a joy with that on the ipod.Happy New Year, Paolo.
Hey! I kicked off the show!
someone certainly should
I was pleased to get Harmony In My Head played. I thought they only had Ever Fallen In Love..
I resign, Ms Brown is First Minister forthwith.
Hey Norrie, what do you think of the new Tom Joad
It is the only track on the lp that I am not that keen on.
Mad Jo to
High Hopes is a bit like Chris Rea. Another one for Adam's sound-alike show?
To be honest I didnt go ahead with that idea coz I figure it'll be too difficult a concept for the FBookers. Maybe, I'll dig out the list though and give it a go.
Chris Evans has just played There's A Guy Works Down The Chip Shop Swears He's Elvis. I haven't heard that in ages (;-)
Uh U Uh
What are the chances of acclaimed artist Captain Beefheart tonight?
Leo Sayer was a One Man Band and as we all know there is nowhere near enough of him on GIO.
Thought not. No Leo either...
Well that's Trigger away......
That can't be right! The most wonderful thing about Tigger is he's the only one!!I'm sure he'll bounce back...
Girl groups tonight. I feel a prediction coming on!
Can you come up with 20? (That all sound different?)
20 I can do. Sounding different may be more difficult...
Tonight’s prediction:The Incidentals – Alisha’s AtticHold On - Wilson PhillipsTwo Become One - The Spice GirlsBe My Baby - The RonettesReflections - The SupremesNever Ever - All SaintsSign of the Times - The Belle StarsBootylicious - Destiny’s ChildGoodbye Earl - Dixie ChicksNeedle In A Haystack - The VelvelettesTake Good Care Of Yourself - The Three DegreesWalk Like An Egyptian - The BanglesYou’re History - Shakespears SisterSince Yesterday - Strawberry SwitchbladeVenus - BananaramaWaterfalls - TLCSound of the Underground - Girls AloudOur Lips Are Sealed - The Go-GosThe Wire - HaimPush The Button - SugababesAll The Things She Said - t.A.T.U.Pink Sunshine - Fuzzbox
Reflections was actually Diana Ross & The Supremes
Nae Sister Sledge???Do you think duos will count?Will Boney M count?I'd be surprised if they dont manage to shoe horn in Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves (aye right,but with a little help from Messrs Hotpoint and Hoover that is) - courtesy of the late Mel Smith..
Aye right enough I'd completely forgotten Sister Sledge.Duos yes, Boney M no. You never know though...
I think there will be some older stuff - Andrews Sisters?
I thought about them and they are in the library...
Thundertighs was a good shoput I thought. Looks like another Zevon free night though!
Heard Werewolves of London on the wireless earlier. Does he have any other records?
Nope thats it.
First record without a B side.
Do they realise over on the other side that it has to be a group? That precludes Kirsty then...
Also are they going to allow mainly girl groups?As opposed to manly girl groups that is...
I've already suggested Dusty Springfield
I see that despite loads of requests for Single Ladies it was only when His Royal Madness came in with a couple that knuckles were rapped and humiliation was brought to bear.Yer gettin picked on Mac.
There are two men standing under a lamp post across from his house.
Relax you two, that's the DPS boys.
Glen, When the creatures of the Dark Side ask "W.T.F. is an adverb?!?" don't tell them.
I think they mean "songs in adverts"
Haw Senga, you been Brutally Live tonight?
Any tribute to Lord McAlpine from Phillip Schofield yet?
Apparently he's got his gopher attending to it.
Great list Glen (;-)
I'm getting a little tired of Admiral Fallow and Frightened Rabbit, too. What a grumpy old man I am.
Feel similarly about Swim Until You Can't See Land which has been done to death. Only overtaken recently by The Woodpile.
The first and hopefully last time I heard Fire and Rain by Birdy was on Get It On.
Do you think the GIO team must be a bit worried / scared by some of the contributors. It can be a bit of a weird bunch..
Not like us.
I'm worried about the person who suggested Mr Bojangles.
Seems incredibke that anyone could not have heard that before. Anyway I assume it is a cover of the great Robbie Williams track?
I think they just think the erstwhile bloggers are the weirdos...I'm worried about the person who heard Lily Allen's John Lewis advert song first on GIO Jx
Gaie and I were both a the Roaming Roots Review show with Roddy hart etc. kast night and jolly good it was too. Although Take It Easy sadly got a run out.
Sounds like a great show.
Glad he turned up (nope...I won't let it lie) Jx
Naeb'dy kin haud a grudge like oor Julie!Celtic Connections next week for Mary Coughlan at G.R.C.H.Hope she turns up...
Well I have to have something I'm good at! Jx
It was a great show last night, though I think last year's was better. That's obviously because Scott from Frightened Rabbit was there. Dawes were brilliant - hope they come back for a gig of their own some time. And Siobhan Wilson was fantastic - I'd seen her on Rapal through the summer when she did the same song as last night. The Joni Mitchell cover was stunning though. And I don't even like Joni. Roddy Woomble's a kind of comic-looking guy, but he's got a lovely voice. Way back when I worked in the lab, we had a PhD student who shared a flat with Roddy. He thought Roddy was really weird as he (the student) came home one day to find he'd spray-painted the walls silver. However, the student himself was unused to soap and water, and also a scientist so who knows which was the weirder.Anyway, last night was a pretty damned good bit of planning and co-ordination and there was even a Warren Zevon song that wasn't Werewolves of London.
Imagine going through school with the name Woomble. It's too late for Warren to enjoy the royalties.
Remember you're a Woomble (;-)
Julie, the highlights of last night's show were Betty Lavette and Little Miss Higgins originally suggested by you.
The Proclaimers surely?
Of course (;-)
I thought that it was really busy over on the other side until I realised that most of the comments were from Mad Mac.
I'm rooting for Modern Romance 8-)
The later comment about throw away the key seems more appropriate (;-)
Oh you are awful... but I like you
Yes Billy...Bettye + LM Higgins were originally my suggestions. Ego boosted, sort of Jx
whistling a little tune
nonchalently strolls up
Here's the wee tune I was whistling
Here, Billy! Meant to ask how the girl band predos went? Did you get a score?
Better not asking :'(
He was tanning a bottle of red followed by Blair Athol single malt the last time I spoke to him on Friday 😳
Thanks for grassing me up. Nicola will be having a word (;-)
who Nikky the fish? Surprised she not in Greenock tonight #bbcindyref
Is that our Gaie in the audience?
nope, thought about it, but didn't go. I didn't watch all of it last night, was there anything of note?
Aye, a couple if scary ladies who were a wee bit excited and started SHOUTING!
Has the thread for tonight's theme gone up on the other side? We should have our list of songs from adverts ready to go up:Heard It Through The Grapevine - (Levi 501s)Like To Teach The World To Sing - (Coca Cola)etc
I know! It was SG's idea. Thought we could have caused a bit of confusion.Not too late..Mind you we saw their interpretation of "groups" so should be interesting to see their grasp of grammar. The production team clearly felt a definition was in order. They know their audience.
I see. A big boy did it and ran away......slowly (;-)
For ultimate confusion you need someone to post the suggestions one by one. Any volunteers?
It couldn't be any more confused than it is already.
Absolutely incredible the sh*te that is getting posted. I thought it would be bad but not THAT bad.I am still chuckling about the Don Henley post Glen, classic.The producers will have their work cut out tonight. Unless they play Roberta Flack all night.
Unbelievable - there's hardly an adverb to be seen over by. And they're not kids of today who are posting, I don't imagine, so when exactly did education go down the pan?
I seen it too - its apolling.
I really don’t care.

They might as well have asked for songs with "really" in the title.
Why don't we have a get-together in Harthill?
I'm game if you are.
I really don't much care if my song with really in the tile wasn't really a song with an adverb in the title. Despite having suffered a good Scottish education, my grammar's still mince. Jx
I managed to get Waking Up Sideways by Kassidy past the grammar police.
