  • Jon : [it's actually called that, with the asterisks - I'm not just censoring!]

  • 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!)

  • BJK : thank you
  • DJ K : Tune in next time BJK for a themed show 🤫
  • BJK : mystery
  • 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
