on bbc four now if you like your rock it is not to be missed.

I look around
I search the skies
I shade my eyes
So nearly blind
And I see signs of half remembered days
I hear bells that chime in strange familiar ways
I recognise...
The hope you kindle in your eyes

Nope. He had a job on Five Live before and after that.

If you'd read/heard the broadcast his actual criticism was of the pinheaded weasels who have set about turning Radio London into a generic phone-in local station.

A lot of his earnings come from writing jobs - creating scripts and gags for other, more famous stars.

Anyway, it was an enjoyable hour's TV. And no pointy-headed rhapsodising about how they love the clicks and pops of a badly-cared-for record, which is what you usually get in any discussion of the joys of vinyl.

Tonight's programme will focus on Pop, while Thursday's will be about Soul Music.

So, if you were on the programme, which three rock albums would you put on the wall of fame? No sneering, no judgement, no one-upmanship, just three which always satisfy, whenever you revisit them. Here's mine:
  • Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers - Damn the Torpedoes
  • David Bowie - Hunky Dory
  • The Band - The Last Waltz
Only three, though - that's even tougher than 'Desert Island Discs'!

I've a fiver on the quote "when R&B actually meant rhythm and blues, unlike today's supposed 'R&B'..."

Clarkson was only a guest on the first programme, you know... ;)

It might be interesting to see the selections, as the majority of soul music was single-based, rather than album-based, Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder excepted.

I can't get Radio London (well, I can online) so why do I get to hear about it? I didn't hear him kicking off about the chance of RL being cut from our local radio...perhaps he's more important what with having famous mates and all that.
