This thread is for when you are listening to the radio, or watching the tele, when something really good comes on. Share it in here so that others who are logged on at the time can listen as well.

I will delete messages from here when the programme is over.

But can you keep the knowledge that Johnny is voting for Trump out of your head long enough to enjoy it?

It's hard that one.  I think it's damaged my view of early PIL (who were 20 times the band the Pistols ever were, and truly revolutionary in a musical sense, at least) even more.  The Pistols were a decent pub rock band with a sweary attitude and good dress sense (that wasn't theirs).  A very ordinary band in the overall scheme of things, if it weren't for the fact that so many musicians of the time seemed to think otherwise... [I'm probably overstating this for dramatic effect, but so many other bands had done something similar before them that I find it hard to take the legend seriously]

Their lyricist and singer wasn't ordinary though.  The band quickly turned into a cartoon, but those first 3 singles still stand tall.

Indeed.  That's why I've just lauded his next project - one of the most forward thinking bands the UK has produced.

Radio 4 documentary about George Harrison 's All things Must Pass last night. An hour long. I enjoyed it even though I'm not particularly a fan.

Thanks, Alan.  I adore that album...one of the best 'Beatles' related recordings in my book.  Will check it out later...  Smiley

A joan Baez concert from 1999, on radio 2 last night. Very good. Not sure if I heard it first time or not.

Most people will have caught it, but just in case:  Mark Radcliffe gave over his programme to the music of Paul Simon last night  in recognition of the artist's 80th  birthday.
