77 A History of Pink Floyd, part III

Part 3 of a four-part series.  This show covered the period from 1975 to 1979 including the albums Wish You Were Here, Animals and The Wall.  A turbulent period in the band’s history.  Preshow and postshow both contained tracks from the Live at Pompeii movie, as well as some of Roger Waters’ solo album Radio K.A.O.S.

76: Let’s Eat – Breakfast

Something close to all our hearts (well, just below in fact), food, and being the first of several, this one’s about breakfast. In the preshow we had Alan’s Psychedelic Breakfast (I wanted to get that out of the way early) followed by some stuff from the H section of the stash, Hayseed Dixie and Huey Lewis.

The breakfast theme included Cyril Tawney’s Chicken on a Raft, a made-up sea shanty – Cyril served on diesel submarines – and includes some Royal Navy slang – a short glossary is included below

Chicken on a Raft = Fried Egg on fried bread
Jimmy = Jimmy-the-One = 1st lieutenant
Comic Cuts = A sailor’s personal file, record of service, misdemeanors etc.
Dabtoes = seamen (not specialist ratings), used the Foreward Mess
Dustmen = Engine Room specialist ratings (originally stokers), used the Aft Mess
middle, forenoon = watches
Whalin’ crew = Whaler’s Crew / Whaler = Ship’s boat
pusser = purser
DonnyB: Donnybristle in Fifeshire, not far from Rosyth dockyard

The postshow included some alternate takes (my, we are getting good at this) on songs from the show, plus a couple of ones that didn’t quite make it.

75 : Diamonds and Ice

The 75th show made use of the wedding-anniversary convention and had a theme of diamonds – which had to be augmented by ice (the slang term for diamonds, we are lead to believe).  A very wide-ranging selection was the result of combing all our stash for suitable candidates.  In the end we had enough to cover the pre- and post-show requirements as well.

73 Rock Humour II: Turned Up To 11

Preshow was a selection from the G section of the stash, plus Hayseed Dixie to set the scene for the show. Postshow was stuff that didn’t quite make the grade for the show, plus a repeat of The Eagles’ Get Over It for AyaHawkeye who had the stream drop out for her during that track. 30 top, 26 most of the time.

72 Gentle Giant

We were without Edison for this show, as he was having some well-earned time off.  The show was presented by me, AlanDJ, and I nearly always remembered to shut my mic off between announcements…

We got up to 20 listeners at one point, which was better than expected given that it is the first weekend of the British school holidays and the US folks have been on holiday for a while.  Thanks for listening, as always, and mention us to your friends…

Given that I was doing the broadcast all on my tod, I started the preshow early and also went on a bit longer with the postshow, moving on to game soundtrack music and then a ‘Fire’ theme.

71 No More Fillers Any More

A fine time was had with our No More Fillers Any More show on Sunday 9th July.

Preshow is still from the G section, and the postshow was the Big Hits from the albums we had featured in the show.

Fewer tracks in this show as more of them were longish album tracks, and grouped in pairs.

15 listeners max, 13 for most of the time.

The next show will be a light frolic through the 10-year career of odball prog rockers Gentle Giant.

70: Girls…

Radio Free D’ni’s 70th show played to a good audience on the plaza and on the air. We had a busy night with 24 tracks in the show, most of them being 3-minute singles, and all on the theme of girls names. We had some response to our call for requests, and more came in during the show, so we’ll keep those for next time. You can still contact us via the website, or in the game, and let us know of a track you would like – if we have it, we will try to play it.

The next show of this type will concentrate on boys names, of which there are somewhat fewer examples but still plenty around.

The preshow had some more tracks from the G section of my stash – Genesis and Gerry Mulligan. Postshow was some of the tracks that almost made it into the show.

22 listeners max, 17 average. I blame the summer holidays.

68 A Bad Year for Good Music IV. George Martin

Show 68 was a celebration and a fast trip through the musical career of George Martin, the ‘fifth Beatle’

A man who became the head of the Parlophone label when it was EMI’s second string and turned it around with a wide range of artists, chief of which were The Beatles. A musician too, who played keyboards on all the early Beatles tracks, and wrote, arranged and conducted orchestral accompaniment, as well as film scores and other works.

Preshow was from the stash, where we have reached F – in this case Focus and Free.

Postshow contained tracks cut from the main show for time – there’s a lot of George Martin out there for you still to discover.

It has been suggested that a History of The Beatles might be well accepted – what do you think?
