Re: Radio Daze

To bring this thread neatly to a close/basically around 1984-5, radio had turned to shit- not the music... the styling was awful- the in house adverts shocking!
Save for this bloke:

The late John Shaw-his night time show 'Here Be Dragons', ultimately and years later gave me the courage to cease hiding behind music and join a Radio Station as a presenter, which is what I did... embracing a lunchtime show, then a Drive Time and 'Late Date' anything goes type format, this gave me a chance to become more informed and receptive.... and able to 'educate' the listeners by subversively playing the odd Seeds or Standells track. To close then with a few memories from John Shaws selection box.
RIP mate.

Re: Radio Daze

.... Some songs I found kinda bundled together - these I do recall from being a kid.
This woman's clipped tones caught my ear:

Eartha Kitt - Just An Old Fashioned Girl.

Re: Radio Daze

I've just bin' reminded these songs were played after my Mom's funeral (I'd tied these together with ribbon and totally forgotten!)

Ella Fitzgerald - Manhattan.
