On The Radio : 260524

It's funny how programmes change, even as you're recording them. I had intended to include OneEskimo's 'Amazing' although I had a few reservations about it. As I came to record the link I was seized by a conviction that the song was too much in the mould of James Blunt. (I have no problem with him, but it wasn't what I wanted on the show.) Having decided to take it out i needed to find a song that lasted around 4 minutes 40 seconds. Fortunately 'Nowhere Girl' fitted thre bill and it was a song I was going to fit into a future show.

The second surprising evolution as the show was in progress is that it developed a rather prog rock feel. I would never have set out to make that consciously but I felt it worked well. Hopefully anyone listening felt that too.
