Rob O'Cop : Ah - any other music worth listening to?
DJ K : Had an album in the late nineties/early noughts then went into publishing
Rob O'Cop : Don't know Liz Horsman
DJ K : Not heard this The The track for a while. Liz Horsman on vocals
Rob O'Cop : One where the contestants have to take lots of drugs
DJ K : Is this a Mom dating show?
Rob O'Cop : Hey ZakMom and AshMom - are Zak and Ash proud of what you're doing?
Rob O'Cop : No, I don't know what a shjip is either
Rob O'Cop : Seriously? In the middle of my show!
Postie : Yep
Rob O'Cop : Teardrop was Elizabeth Fraser from the Cocteaus, right?
Rob O'Cop : Yeah, top track
Postie : Do love this I Break Horses track, Rob - listen closely - it has a hint of Massive Attack's Teardrop
Bob Barclay : Wendell channeling my favourite Jamie Foreman story.
Rob O'Cop : You can get any kind of party on this chat! 🙂
Wendell : I didn’t know it was going to be that kind of party
DJ K : 🤣
Rob O'Cop : 10mg vials, £50
Bob Barclay : Love the Amyl. I’m surprised we haven’t been offered any by the spammy drug pushers on our web chat.
Rob O'Cop : (Only just discovered them)
Rob O'Cop : Yeah, they're good - other stuff worth checking out (may play some more on future shows)
DJ K : This reminds me a bit of Dream Wife....not heard of these
Rob O'Cop : Don't get too chilled...;-)
DJ K : Nice n' easy
Postie : Yeah, pretty good stuff👍
Rob O'Cop : Thanks, Postie, for the VerseChorusVerse intro
Rob O'Cop : Yeah, bit bushy
Bob Barclay : Where’s Billzinho when we need him?
DJ K : Bit of a Kate Bush emulator too
DJ K : Debatable
Bob Barclay : This is sounded suspiciously like jazz Mr O’Cop
Rob O'Cop : More sax than flute, but hey!
Rob O'Cop : Good! 🙂
Bob Barclay : Me too
Postie : Sure am
Rob O'Cop : Hope you're in a shoegaze/ dream-pop mood! (Although switching genres soon...)
Rob O'Cop : Hey K!
Postie : Loved the last few tracks, Rob - Deserta were another find this year
DJ K : Evening Rob
Rob O'Cop : Lots of shoegazery coming up. Postie will like it...
Bob Barclay : Immersed in Wet Leg
Rob O'Cop : Ha! That would be ironic if the random warm-up tracks were better than my actual show! 🙂
Bob Barclay : I bloody love this Teleman track. I hope Rob’s music is as good.
WolfieJ : My bad, Postie, amd well spotted. Cover version from a YouTube discovery
Postie : Classic Kraftwerk, remixed?
WolfieJ : It's a classic, Postie. Came out round about the time when Blancmange also featured sitars and tablas.
Postie : Loved hearing that Monsoon track WJ
WolfieJ : And what a belter! Almost as good as Silvermac
Rob O'Cop : Haven't heard Sonic Boom Boy for a hundred years or more...
Jon : ... And now I have another music reference to research! Thanks Wendell - I'll check Philip Glass out!
Wendell : And this Penguin music... sounds busy and ordered like Phillip glass, Koyaanisqatsi era...

Rob O'Cop : Ooh - It Bites - must dig out something of theirs for my next show...!
Ade Arkley : Will dig it up 9360
guest_9360 : Who’s Rob O’cop? He sounds like my kind of guy. Can we get some heavy polyrhythmic It Bites or some Nova?
Ade Arkley : EVENING ALL! How’s it hangin out there? What the scene like in Wylie’s? Are we still on air?
Ade Arkley : I think you’ve dialled the wrong number.
Rob O'Cop : Lots of prog. And Phil Collins.
Ade Arkley : Give the people what they want! Any requests for next week?
Rob O'Cop : Jive Talking! Oh yes! Where's Lippo? 🙂
Ade Arkley : Only just realised I could have saved this one for the Xmas special.
Ade Arkley : Super Eagles is this week’s most obscure track. I absolutely LOVE it.
Ade Arkley : Bangin tunes Amanda. Thank you!!
Ade Arkley : Edo, The Get Down in Wandsworth Standard Time
Edo : ......between 5 and 7 on a Friday
Edo : Wandsworth rocks....
Amanda@wandsworth : I love the bee gees...not as much as kylie😜
Ade Arkley : Yo Sam. Oh by the way, there's some Bee Gees at top of hour 2. You might like.
Sam : Can't wait for Amanda's tracks...
Ade Arkley : OK, slow dance time. Everyone up and into the middle of the floor. Then we go disco mad with Amanda.
Ade Arkley : Hey Rob, Yeah, it's a good one
Rob O'Cop : Love this B & S!
Ade Arkley : What on earth can she mean?
Ade Arkley : When Joe Henry came up the river, y'all Lord, he made a woman outta me
Ade Arkley : Sax!
Wendell : Toggling? Let’s see now…
Ade Arkley : Wolfie, don't be discreet! Blast it out loud and proud.
Ade Arkley : Edo, Bud Lite? Jesus
Wolfie J : Discreetly trying to tune in during parents evening
Ade Arkley : Silas are you drumming on the bar top?!
Ade Arkley : Wylie, yo. Maybe not without killing the sound of the show as well. If you have Geoff in there, ask him - he set up the chat plug-in and there's probably some setting he needs to toggle!
Edo : Not sure they will be amused by the choice of Bud Lite or Corona......
Edo : Banished upstairs......and then going out - have no interest in babysitting 16 year olds
Wylie Silas : Ade, any way to turn off the chat sounds?
Ade Arkley : Trumpet!!
Ade Arkley : Hey Edo! I do hope so. Are you banished upstairs or heading out? Or are you on vomit duty?
Edo : Evening Ade. Chillin before my 16yr old takes over the house for a party with 25 mates. Wonder if they will appreciate this music.....
Ade Arkley : Every time I see you baby, I go WILD!!!
Wylie Silas : Hey dudes. Tuning in now.
Ade Arkley : Big hello to Wylies in Sitges. Get Down amigos.
Ade Arkley : Right. Are we ready to funk on down? Sorry about all the ceutical ads. But if you need anything...
Shane : The Godfather of Chamber Psych, I call him
Bob Barclay : Great start Shane. I love a bit of chamber psych like The Magic Lantern
DJ K : Cheers Ron....glad you could tune in
Ron D : THanks Dave
Dory1965 : 👏 thanks
DJ K : Worked up a list but there is plenty of space and no problem with repeating themes.....cos I'm in charge 🙂
DJ K : Thanks Dory.....any theme suggestions welcome
DJ K : I did start with about 70 songs off the tope of my head before suggestions Has Amy and Joss Stone and others so loads left 🙂
Dory1965 : Was great idea DJ K
DJ K : sounds like a vox femme II might be in the making if folks enjoyed
DJ K : At least that was his 4th lp...some dont get that far
Ron D : No Amy Winehouse Dave ?
DJ K : There is definitely something in that
Ron D : Its like most acts, ive got this theory that they only have a certain number of songs in them. David Gray is an example White Ladder was outstanding
DJ K : Second Aimee vocal of the show....favouratism?
DJ K : Is it different to her others?
DJ K : Still listening?
Ron D : Not sure
DJ K : What do you think for the new album?
DJ K : 😁
DJ K : Will try and find a slot for that on it's anniversary
Ron D : My favorite track is 'A Million years ago' from 25. The lyric are great.
DJ K : On this revenge song, Adele lays into a former boyfriend. "It's me making a bit of a statement," she told Q Magazine. "People will hear it and go, Wow, she ain't mucking around."
DJ K : going for a double now
DJ K : At last 🙂
Oiley : You've got a "oh I like this one' from Mrs Oiley
DJ K : 🤣
Ron D : sounds like the type of girl you'd want your son to date
DJ K : Karen O told the New Musical Express January 17, 2009, with a grin: "I figured if we were going to write a dance song it should be about heads bouncing on the floor and murder and slaughter."
DJ K : Hayley Williams (a big Stephanie Meyer fan) took the song directly to Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke, who not only gave it the thumbs up, but also commissioned the band to write another song for the next movie
DJ K : Tunstall explained: "It's a metaphor for good and evil. One summer, I was traveling in Greece on a little moped and this massive black horse had broken free in an olive grove and was going nuts. It looked apocalyptic: a seed was sown.
DJ K : Was the first gig I took my daughter to...at 9 years old! Wish I'd had such an early start....could have seen so cool bands 🙂
DJ K : The Sk8er image is undoubtedly Avril's‚ It is also likely that there was a boy in Napanee, Ontario who got a popular musical reminder that he missed his chance
Ron D : Loved Avril when she first appeared.
DJ K : Courtney Love wrote this about the pressures of being a public figure.
DJ K : Thanks Dory 🙂
DJ K : Jewel wrote this when she was 16. She traveled a lot in those days, and took a trip to Mexico where she hitchhiked around the country. She was amazed to see how many people looked like they were waiting for someone to save them.
Dory1965 : Shamefully not heard this one before. Really like it. Thanks
DJ K : Shery said this song was a throwaway - it wasn't even going to be on the album. My little brother kept saying, 'This is a big hit.' And there really is a bar on Formosa across from a car wash. But I haven't ever spent a morning in a bar having a beer."
DJ K : Chrissie Hynde wrote this song for tennis star John McEnroe, who was an aspiring musician.
DJ K : I thought it looked cool
DJ K : Early Aimee Mann...when she had a haircut that was described as looking like a starched Pomeranian with a rat-tail.
DJ K : I was thinking vocally but maybe you're onto something
Ron D : what physically ha ha
DJ K : Hi Ron Thanks for listening
DJ K : Annie describes herself as a hybrid between Stevie Wonder and Joni Mitchell
Ron D : One of the 80s greatest track still sounds fresh today
DJ K : Plenty of early Pat songs to pick from
Bob Barclay : Go Pat
DJ K : Patti Smith came on an sung an encore at U2 gig I went to
DJ K : Hi guest 8500. You can type in a friendly name if you want
grahamed : Patti Smith. Even better
DJ K : Wow. Celeb encore
DJ K : Hi Grahame. Classic Heart
grahamed : I saw Heart at the Dominion in the 80s, Brian May and Randy California got up to play Born to be Wild for the encore. Not a bad night out.
DJ K : Hi Dory. It wa a soap of a movie
grahamed : what a classic tune
guest_8500 : Dusty!
guest_8500 : Grace!
Dory1965 : I saw that last night!
DJ K : Evening all. Enjoy the show...might be a bit late to the chat as House of Gucci was a long movi?

Ade Arkley : Ten quid says Billzinho plays this on his next show
Sarah C : Hello!
Ade Arkley : Indeed not. Hi Sarah!
Sarah C : Can't go wrong with Lady W
Ade Arkley : Yes. Grace was hitting the bottle pretty badly just after this one came out. Didn't help.
Molly Bloom : @ade nothing is worse than we built this city. they're one of these bands that wrote some of the best and some of the worst songs in the world
Ade Arkley : Funky Rabbit would be good. We'll go looking for one.
Molly Bloom : @hackney there was but there was too much mixture of pot and LSD.
Ade Arkley : Molly, coconut crisps? Sounds worse that We Built This City.
DrHackney : There must be a funk cover of white rabbit out there
daveb : lights are on at least
Ade Arkley : Oh, dave wandered in. Just warming up the decks
Molly Bloom : these things have to be the worst things about the 21st century (stupid uses for coconuts)
daveb : evenin all
Ade Arkley : Don't worry. That ain't gonna happen
Molly Bloom : If you play We Built This City I'm going to choke on my coconut crisps
Ade Arkley : I'm on a mission here Molly. This is sooo good
Molly Bloom : That Ade is playing Jefferson starship is the biggest shock of my life
Shane : It was inspired by Aberfan but they thought New York sounded more glamorous. As if the people of Aberfan hadn’t had enough bad luck
Ade Arkley : "Have you seen my life Mr Jones..." etc
Ade Arkley : That's it Shane. Everyone knows it though even though they may not know it from the title.
Molly Bloom : genau
Shane : New York Mining Disaster, 1941. Catchy title
Ade Arkley : Sehr sehr gut, nein?
Ade Arkley : Everyone is Molly. Totes rare
guest_7207 (Sam R) : How deep is your love is cracking though
Molly Bloom : I'm kind of annoyed this is the first I'm hearing this song.
Ade Arkley : What about the mining incident one? Before disco Bee Gees? It's amazing
Ade Arkley : Nice one 7207!
Ade Arkley : Yes. Love those two
guest_7207 : Not sure about best song, but the best beegees title surely has to be: "fanny be tender with my love"
DrHackney : I'm with jive talking
Rob O'Cop : Should have Jive Talking on your show...
Postie : Tragedy
Molly Bloom : Echt toll
Ade Arkley : German A-side funkness coming up
Molly Bloom : I listened to crap at her age I'm really impressed
Ade Arkley : Clearly Cardiff is the epicentre of cool right now
Molly Bloom : Sorry what your guest DJ goes to Studio 54 with her friends?
Ade Arkley : Thank you to Lila!! Fantastic. We could probably play more Bee Gees. Fave Bee Gees track anyone?
Ade Arkley : True true
Shane : B&S aren’t the funkiest but Legal Man or Your Cover’s Blown would actually work well on The Get Down
Ade Arkley : Lila's last pick coming up will have Robin on his feet, if he's listening
Molly Bloom : top o' the whatever
Ade Arkley : Hey Molly
Molly Bloom : Belle et séb! Great band great television programme
Ade Arkley : And thanks Lila! Awesome pick this one

DrHackney : The world may have neded by next Friday. play it now.
Ade Arkley : Awesome
DrHackney : loving this
Ade Arkley : Wotcha reckon to this funk piano Dr H?
Ade Arkley : Next track is also my favourite
Wendell : For extra points, can anyone find the first reference to the clean Stratocaster sound as “reedy”? It really stuck… I’m thinking Greil Marcus
Ade Arkley : Steady
DrHackney : downhill from here then?
Ade Arkley : It's a beaut. May be my favourite track this week
Wendell : Ah that clean Strat… so reedy 🎸
Wolfie J : I've dabbled with 18th century Sturm und Drang, but it was never this chirpy
Ade Arkley : Me neither. Wolfgang will know
Wendell : Is this Sturm or Drang? I could never keep that straight,,,
N Rodgers : With all that guitar plucking and a strumming my fingers ain't so good at typing my name, but coming through loud n clear
Ade Arkley : !!
Charlie and LIVIA : Soz it was probs my phone
Ade Arkley : Wouldn't be the first time we've had technical issues
Ade Arkley : Cool. Got thrown by Charlie and Livia there. Thanks all
slaw : Can hear you
DrHackney : we hear you
Charlie and LIVIA : Doing great!
Wendell : From Brentford
Shane : You’d think you’d be able to spell your own surname Nile
Wendell : I think that’s Nigel Rogers
Charlie and LIVIA : It’s back
Charlie and LIVIA : Ades where has the sound gone
Ade Arkley : Hey Nile. I'll take one
DrHackney : Hey Nile
N Rogers : Any of my fans out there want to bid for one of my guitars?
Ade Arkley : How funky we feeling out of ten? Anyone listening somewhere exotic?
Ade Arkley : Hey Charlie and Livia!
Wendell : But a trice by electric scooter from a certain Ospedale Mangiagalli, Livia… ask your sister
Wolfie J : Another great track I see being played in my show
Charlie snd LIVIA : WOOOHOOOOOO
Wendell : Shout out to all the MI-TO peeps…
Wendell : This is Wendell Maas, reporting from Aperitivo Hour in Bar Brera, MI

Rob O'Cop : Hey Postie! Yeah, thought it would be up your street...
Postie : Rob, really liked that Cielo Oceano stuff you put me onto
Rob O'Cop : The Prodigy Experience (with Charly, Out of Space, etc.) was first. Then Music For The Jilted Generation (with Voodoo People, Poison, etc.) second.
Jon : 👍
Jon : * scribbles down an idea for a track *
Rob O'Cop : Jsut checked - Fat Of The Land was their 3rd album!
Jon : Ooh,
Rob O'Cop : Sorry, wouldn't be the first - there was all the old 'Charlie Says' stuff before that...
Rob O'Cop : Their first one, I think. Fat Of The Land?
Jon : Good call! What's the album this was from?
Rob O'Cop : Thought it was about time I included some old skool Prodigy, Chemical Brothers, Orbital, etc...
Jon : Great track choice!
Rob O'Cop : Ha! Hope this has woken people up! 🙂
Rob O'Cop : Yes, her voice gives something different
Shane : Yeah, definitely
Rob O'Cop : She reminds me of Nico from The Velvet Underground!
Shane : It’s a really good album, isn’t it. She has an endearingly odd voice
Rob O'Cop : Thanks to Shane for the intro to this new Anika album...
Jon : This is very nice stuff...
Rob O'Cop : Indeed. We had Prince Chas and Bojo praising AZ today (grand opening of big new research centre in Cambridge)

DJ K : Unreleased for 20 years this Radiohead track
DJ K : Great prelude to the show Rob....Marquee Moon 😁👍
Jon : [it's actually called that, with the asterisks - I'm not just censoring!]
Jon : If you like that Missy Eliot/Cure mashup, it's from an album called "cut the f**k up" which doesn't seem to be on general release any more but there are some brilliant mashups on there...
Jon : Also - talking nonsense about The Vintage Caravan and 2001 - that's from an album they released in 2021! They formed in 2011. #factcheckingrocks
Jon : Manchester Academy on Mar 24th 2022! (bit more local for me!)
Jon : :-O
DJ K : At the Islington Academy in March 2022
Jon : Icelandic band from back in 2001 I think...

Jon : Evening folks! Starting with my new favourite tune. I might start every show with this in the future 🙂

DJ K : Thanks for listening everyone. See you in a fortnight with something a little bit different 🤭
BJK : what years next time
DJ K : Beatrice Laus is a Filipino-British singer-songwriter known professionally as Beabadoobee. After getting expelled from Sacred Heart High School, Laus felt lost and turned to writing and music as a therapeutic release. She learned to play the guitar by watching YouTube tutorials
DJ K : Thanks BJK and sticking with the show
BJK : like this one
DJ K : "'Pyro' is the most fun and it's the most difficult. It's, uh… God… I remember the first night we played it. I was so nervous and so mad at them for making me play it. It's because I was so anxious to do it, but, thank God, it worked out and I didn't mess up."
DJ K : STP Bassist Robert DeLeo described the song to Spin Magazine as "musically is like Paul Revere and the Raiders, with that '60s sound that I've always been a fan of. It's a '60s rockin' basher."
DJ K : Thanks to Dave 'Bucket' Colwell for sharing the story behind Reach Out 👍
John N : True that
DJ K : I remember it getting loads of MTV airplay when released
DJ K : Sad that there themes in this track caught up with the singer too
John N : I appreciate that not everyone will agree....but...
DJ K : Cheers John.
John N : Top track thank you
DJ K : Chester Bennington told Rolling Stone magazine 2002: "The song is about taking responsibility for your actions. I don't say 'you' at any point. It's about how I'm the reason that I feel this way. There's something inside me that pulls me down."
DJ K : According to lead singer Chris Martin, "It was simply because that word Yellow sounded nice, it just seemed to fit, no other reason. None of the other colors would have sounded right really!" The Beatles were kind to the color when they used it in their song "Yellow Submarine."
John N : And there it is
Neil : Your whelk
DJ K : Hi Neil. Thanks for joining in
Neil : Hello there DJ K
Neil : What a tune!!!
Wendell : Wallinger! Tune!
DJ K : The song contains a nod to "Sympathy for the Devil" by the Rolling Stones
DJ K : If only this was live 😊
John N : If you can squeeze this in then what about the KLF!!!!!
DJ K : This song was an ironic airplay favorite in the UK when Maggie Thatcher resigned as Prime Minister in November 1990.
DJ K : A US band that are very good live. A three piece
BJK : never heard of them but i like
DJ K : This song was written by King's X guitarist Ty Tabor, who also handles lead vocals on the track. With a straightforward message - "It's love that holds it all together," he calls it, "one of those socially conscious songs." Says Tabor, "I just had to say it."
DJ K : This song features a theremin, which was used in a number of sci-fi movies in the '50s and '60s.
DJ K : This is basically a love song about a girl named after a soft furnishing fabric (velour). Yeah, we were kind of baffled by the lyrics too, so we asked Pixies frontman Frank Black about them. His reply: "It's folklore based; the Rosicrucians of 1920s San Jose California had some pretty interesting ideas."
DJ K : Good movie
DJ K : Just been to see Last Night In Soho and surprised this wasn't in the soundtrack
Bob Barclay : Nah
DJ K : That's not Bob is it?
DJ K : Hi guest_7298. You can amend the name to your own if you want. It was on the poster 😊
guest_7298 : Wow so much nwobhm nostaglia in one show!
DJ K : 🤣
Wendell : Biff Byford is a hell of a handle for a lead singer of Saxon. Plus change one letter and turn him into an arch-intellectual former editor of Granta.)
Bob Barclay : 😂
DJ K : In the words of Abraham Lincoln, "People who like this sort of thing will find this the sort of thing they like."
DJ K : This song is all about speed, with a driving riff written by Saxon guitarist Paul Quinn. When we spoke with lead singer Biff Byford, he explained: "It's a song about the motorcycle attitude. Not many people write songs about motorcycles, so it's all about the attitude and aggression and the speed of the song, really. There aren't too many lyrics on that one."
DJ K : Only for 1980
Bob Barclay : Is this Spinal Tap?
DJ K : We have a winner Wendell
DJ K : That was some double bill
Wendell : I'll take "Bands with a song title that shares a word in their band name" for 200 dollars, Alex.
DJ K : And they win a prize for the oddest support act at The Marquee.....Billy Bragg
DJ K : Angel Witch used to have a regular slot at The Dutch House in Sidcup for any South Londerners on her
DJ K : Beware managers that own cardboard factories....how 1980's 😉
DJ K : Says Harris of this Diamond Head: "We didn't know s--t." Unfortunately, their inexperience was taken advantage of by their manager Reg Fellows. Fellows, who owned a cardboard factory, was responsible for the low-quality first album issue (aka "The White Label Album"), and would go around afterwards reselling the album under various names (Am I Evil?, To Heaven From Hell, Behold the Beginning), even with different cover artwork. The band has since been vocal in protesting how they'd been exploite
Bob Barclay : Only kidding DJK. Top tunes!
DJ K : 🤣
Bob Barclay : Change one letter in a Rush song to make it even more boring. I’ll go first. Tom Lawyer.
DJ K : A box for Sabbath John! That must have been weird.
DJ K : Hi Bob.... how ever did you guess
DJ K : If only...Just the one Rush song guest_3412 🤣
Bob Barclay : So it was DJK. Great show now you’re here too. Amazing songs all in a row from 1970.
guest_3412 : Just the 97 mins of Rush to get through
John N : i can't remember now exactly how but I pulled a corporate and was in a box!!! Very R&R
DJ K : Ozzy is playing the O2 next March so maybe thats half a farewell
DJ K : I was there too
John N : Good memories of Sabbath "farewell" show at the O2 - thanks DJK
DJ K : He probably meant thesound.fm too 😉
DJ K : Rush drummer and lyricist Neil Peart explained this song in an interview with Billboard magazine: "'The Spirit Of Radio' was actually written as a tribute to all that was good about radio, celebrating my appreciation of magical moments I'd had since childhood, of hearing 'the right song at the right time.'
DJ K : Deep moral
DJ K : lapton was seeing Pattie Harrison and deeply in love with her when he wrote this. A lot of people knew about the affair, since it wasn't easy for someone as famous as Clapton to keep a secret. Bobby Whitlock, who was in the band and good friends with both Harrison and Clapton, told us: "I was there when they were supposedly sneaking around. You don't sneak very well when you're a world figure.
DJ K : Seems like some of these fan classics came easy to these bands 🙂
DJ K : them, because we never thought of ourselves as a singles band. We spent a whole afternoon trying to get a riff and nothing happened. Round 7:30 we decided to go down to the pub and stayed there until closing time and came back to the studio completely drunk wherupon Ritchie (Blackmore) picked up the guitar and started playing what was to become 'Black Night' and we said 'yeah, that sounds great let's do that.'"
DJ K : Bands often complain about record companies putting pressure on them to produce a hit song, but in many cases, these tactics work. That was the case here, as Deep Purple bass player Roger Glover explained in a 1988 interview with Metal Hammer. Said Glover: "I love the way that song was born. It happened one night in the studio after we finished Deep Purple In Rock and the management were screaming for a single, because there wasn't an obvious single on the album. So we thought that we'd humor th
DJ K : "Paranoid" is a fan favorite, the far from a band favorite. Geezer Butler told Guitar World magazine, March 2004, "A lot of the Paranoid album was written around the time of our first album, Black Sabbath. We recorded the whole thing in about two or three days, live in the studio. The song 'Paranoid' was written as an afterthought. We basically needed a 3-minute filler for the album, and Tony came up with the riff. I quickly did the lyrics, and Ozzy was reading them as he was singing."
DJ K : Simon Kirke of Free said. "'All Right Now' was created after a bad gig in Durham, England. Our repertoire at that time was mostly slow and medium paced blues songs which was alright if you were a student sitting quietly and nodding your head to the beat. However, we finished our show in Durham and walked off the stage to the sound of our own footsteps. The applause had died before I had even left the drum riser. When we got into the dressing room, it was obvious that we needed an uptempo number,
Manoj : Pretty cool
Manoj : Done
DJ K : Hi Manoj....you can change your name if you like
DJ K : Hi Bob....think your praise was meant for the the myriad random song generating machine
Wendell : I am driving and in danger of losing points.
guest_1158 : Long time since I heard this
guest_1158 : Hi dave it’s manoj

DJ K : Thanks Wendell and Co for restoring the chat
DJ K : Evening all. Hope you are enjoying a good start to your week and that you enjoy the next couple of hours of Rock n' Rollin' Back the Years. This weeks show starts way back in 1970 😋
Bob Barclay : That Tosca track was the dog's
Josh91k : Looks like messaging is back up!
Wendell : Tosca! 🙂
Bob Barclay : And well done whoever restored the chat. We've missed it.
Bob Barclay : Lovin the tunes DJK
Wendell : Thesound.fm. For when your other parts feel less than fresh.
Wolfie J : Apols. Tied up with something else, but glad it's refreshing the parts other stations fail to reach
Wendell : Hard to imagine a Who track, particularly from such a pored over album as Tommy, that is a total greenfield mystery to me, but there you have it. The Amazing Journey. Never (consciously) heard it.
Postie : Great run of...
Postie : Get run of tunes WJ 👍
Wolfie J : Refreshes the parts...
Postie : Love the ads, WJ - classics
billzinho : Haha walt’a in majorc’a … been a while

Wendell : Thanks to you also guest_4304... a quick note about the chat, it does seem that you can avoid the Squid Game anonymity (should that be your bag) by entering your handle only once; the chat remembers it.
