Truly awful. It's a sad day when Son of my Father and Billy Don't Be A Hero are the standout tracks...
No Mozz - the Git will be distraught...
Cmon Billy, whats wrong with 13, 14, 16 and 20 as well on Disc 1?OK, Disc 2 is a struggle...
Do you really want an answer?
Quite good value, though, 40 tracks.
I'll drink to that.
....cliff's complaint about being 65% down on airplay seems to have struck a chord at GIO....cheers frae the dale
....and while i'm on the subject, how come some people around here get a personal note from BB...on f/b of all places ...thats heavy embarrassing....cheers frae the dale
Some even have the Gruppenführer as a friend.
They can't shut Facebook down.
It's an obsession with celebrity... Producers aren't presenters, neither are they gourmet chefs & that bloomin laugh. Who in their right mind thinks that having a loud laugh somehow ingratiates themselves to others. Nope, all surplus to requirements.
I nominate AfR to get a bloody Farcebook account & takeover for a while, he's got a way with words.
No comment in case it's tidied by the blogmeister (;-)
You dont want me over there MM. You wouldn't like me over there.As to Billy and Glen getting personal messages - its a classic case of divide and rule. They've already got Norrie and Julie, Billy too now probably, but to get Glen would be like Farage walking over the Glienicke Bridge to join the Labour party.
Shaddup a you Facebook
Tidy kangaroo down, sport.

Good list Billy.Whats the theme?
Care to hazard a guess?
I was being ironic Billy.Anyway, "New York" must be giving "Space" a run for its money on the most times as a theme chart.So much so you're not going to get a full point for each correct predo. The European Golden Shoe rules apply here, where we give a weighting according to the easiness of the theme. In the case of "New York" its half a mark each.
Exactly Adam, get yersel onto Farcebook please.
I answered you above...
Don't play hard to get.
That weighing seems s bit harsh...
...though probably academic as after two for two it's gone s bit Pete Tong 😠
* a bit
Norrie, New York Telephone Company
Sorry MM not getting that one. Conversation?
Bell Records = Showaddywaddy
Suggestions Norrie nothing more.
Adam, 'they' don't have me. Not yet anyway...
I cannae believe you lot are joinin in wi feckbook.Traitors.
You have a nice boat. It would be a shame if something happened to it.

Aye, those were the days
Aye, better than "tell us aboot yer favourite disco!"
The Bloggers were the radio equivalent of the Glasgow Empire audience - discerning and forthright.
Enlightenment & GIO Producers shall never meet.
So knowledgeable that the Snr Producers makes yet another mistake.
Well done Adam, my internet is doonEnough tae mak mah heid gawn roonI phoned an got an Indian for meSaid he worked for us at BTAfter he'd heard what I had to sayHe assured me I'd be fixed next TuesdayHe asked about switches and which way I'd turn itI told him to go and ask Brian BurnettI was not pleased my internet had goneSo told the man, you must Get It On
THURSDAYLong Distance Love - Little Feat
..they don't do irony fo sho...cheers frae the dale
Punch Brothers breathtaking tonight. Siobhan Miller (with James Grant) also very good.
Great stuff Glen glad you enjoyed it. I was at the Another Country broadcast and it was utterly superb.
If this "bring an' tell", Shooglenifty 25 plus Oiléain and Dhol Drummers!No celebrity credits required.
Fairport Convention and Roaming Roots Revue. Particularly liked Colin McLeod and Rachel Sermanni together.
JD McPherson rocked the ABC tonight but I think the sheer musicianship of Chris Thile's Punch Brothers has become my yardstick for live performance.
a truly great concert leaves you buzzing for days, weeks even, but then how to follow? I'm at that now - Robert Plant was right up there for me, not just the band, but the warmth and love within the audience. 3 gigs later and they were all good. But...
I've decided to sell up and follow them round the world.
Don't just take my word.http://www.heraldscotland.com/arts-ents/music/celtic-connections-review.1422196969
Honestly never heard of them but I am now going to get some of their cd's - some reviewe.
Does Rye Whiskey make GIO sound better, Glen?
Good to see my Underground getting a shout on FB on Friday.
That's Demis Roussos gone. Perhaps we'll be able to see the sun again.
Another s. ad day - where is Henri when we need him in these dark hours..Norrie.
Get him on tonight. He mentions Rainbow in "Forever and Ever" (Demis that is, not Henri)
Julie could organise it...
Oops. Sorry Glen. Just seen your post on the other side.Feel a bit like a Gino Satti but honestly I posted before I looked!
Great minds. Are you that familiar with his lyrics? I had to look it up.
