On The Radio : 140424

(Come on !! You get the connection, surely! As usual, there's a link to radio. Answer at the end.)

Following last week's long player special, this week's show went a different route. 28 songs in two hours is a record for the programme, and hopefully you heard lots to like.

I prevaricated over the Tunng track - directly dealing with death is one of the last remaining taboos. I included it mainly because it deals with the subject in an uplifting way and because pop has always had a role in helping people to address subjects that would otherwise not be spoken about. Any thoughts - for or against - would be welcome.

And if you've ever wondered what a producer does, I was two seconds over this week and Darren brought forward the final song by two seconds. It sounded great!
