I said R&B cos that's what the sky planner blurb said, guests are Martin Freeman, Mica Paris and Trevor Nelson.

Tonight is Boy George, Grace Dent and David Hepworth.

I'm interested to hear what 'pop' selections they put in. I'd hazard a guess at "Pet Sounds" being in there, with good reason. The production is stupendous. Any idea who is joining Danny to talk 'pop' tonight? It was nice to see Stephen Street in there last night. A good pop producer (1980s vintage - e.g Trevor Horn) would be a good selection for the panel.


Grace Dent, Boy George and David Hepworth for tonight's panel. Not as familiar with Dent as some, but the other two are opinionated, knowledgable and usually entertaining.

As for Clarkson, he wasn't performing his professional 'Top Gear' berk character, and his honest enjoyment of music shone through.

It fulfills the Radio Leeds listeners' primary requirement .... that it doesn't feature Liz Green.


Good old Liz!

I have to say that as someone who grew up in the 90s as part of the CD generation I actually found last night's show quite interesting really. Probably would suit a radio show better, but I've watched far worse music discussion shows.

Album art would be lost on it though.

Yeah, although they discussed a lot of album art last night without showing it annoyingly. Not the best use of the medium

Oh, I'd gladly step aside and let you do the honours.

I'm sure she'd think the same about me anyway.

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'!


Never actually heard of two of yours :mellow:
  • Earth vs Wildhearts - The Wildhearts ('93)
  • Between the Heart and the Synapse - The Receiving end of Sirens (05)
  • Celebration Rock - Japandroids ('12)

And I've not heard of all 3 of them!

Okay, time's up on the Rock albums. Now you have to nominate your three Pop albums. Of course, the difference between the two can be blurry.
Joni Mitchell - Court and Spark
Paul Simon - Graceland
Blondie - Parallel Lines

10 cc "the original soundtrack"
ELO "the best of"
THE SMITHS "the smiths"

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

Soul/R'n'B selection time! I've deliberately omitted 'What's going on' and Stevie Wonder's remarkable run of Seventies albums, just to be fair to the rest of the genre.
  • Lamont Dozier - The ABC Years & Lost Sessions
  • Nona Hendryx & Billy Vera - You have to cry sometime
  • Curtis Mayfield - There's no Place like America today

Womack & Womack - Radio MUSC Man
Anita Baker - Giving You the Best I've Got
Mary J Blige - No More Drama

I have tons and tons of soul and r'n'b stuff but it's almost all on Greatest Hits collections.

On another forum, someone has nominated Dusty Springfield - Dusty in Memphis. I may have to make a strategic edit to my post above...
