86 Valentine’s Day

A fine romantic evening’s entertainment was shared with up to 29 listeners at one point.

Preshow from my stash again, some Little Feat, Swarbrick/Carthy, The Melrose Quartet with a fine piece of anti-war sentiment, composed by Carthy, and after that some Michael Chapman, with added Mick Ronson and Rick Kemp.

The show walked the listener through an affair, from first meeting to a Valentine, a slow dance, and a look at the future.

Postshow we had some of the tracks that just didn’t quite make the cut, from Bryan Ferry’s Slave To Love (another meet-up and falling in love song), Under The Boardwalk and Wouldn’t It Be Nice (getting to know each other) and some steamy stuff, Body Talk and Feel Like Makin’ Love. Finally, Paxton’s Outward Bound sees the couple heading off on a life’s voyage.
