On The Radio : 27/8/23

The third edition of Pop In The Real World (On The Radio) went out last Sunday.

I was grateful for comments about it as I wondered if it was a little flat. It seems, from the reaction, that it was only I that felt that.

If you listen in next Sunday - at the new regular time of 18:00 to 20:00 - you'll hear the 'development' I've received form our DJ's seminar on radio presenting skills.

Make your show lively they said or listeners will switch off. Sunday' episode will therefore feature me bursting into song at some point. (Wait..... where has everyone gone!) It will also feature proper singing (or playing) from the likes of Primal Scream, Jungle, Teenage Fanclub, Captain Beefheart, Air and The Field Mice - and many. many more!

  1. Coming Home - Pacific State

  2. Every Trick in the Book - The Allergies
