On The Radio : 090624

(Connection to radio? Answer at the end.)

It's been a busy week. I've been working on three programmes at once due to taking two week's holiday in June. If you don't compare it to a fireman or the man who has to cover up Rishi Sunak's gaffs, that's quite hard work!

I'm pleased to let you know though that two Pop In The Real World specials are on the way.

The programme on 23/6/24 will be dedicated to music from, and accompanying, great entertainment and drama. Be prepared for songs from the shows, for TV show themes, for links to literature and for songs that accompany great dramas from real life. And, just in time for the knock out stages of Euro 2024, music to accompany penalty shoot outs.

The programme on 30/6/24 will be dedicated to synth pop, electro pop and other forms of electronic music.

I hope you'll be able to tune in for those.
