121R Scott Walker 2

Hugh, who wrote this show, joined us for the Remastered version, and we found that Scott Walker, solo and wierd, was a hit with our audience.  We love you, but you’re wierd, a bit like us 🙂  Sixteen connections, good for a holiday weekend.  The Jacques Brel songs were especially noted.

249 Let There Be Drums

An idea that surfaced after listening to Joni Mitchell’s “The Jungle Line”, Malaclypse took it and wrote a theme to it and between us we put together a great set of tracks.  Lots of dancing in the cavern, but fortunately no roof collapses.

A show from Hugh with live tracks from throughout the career of the various groups going under the name of King Crimson.  My Internet connection broke several days before the show and could not be restored until afterwards, so there was a degree of extemporisation, I’m told.  25 listeners, so it worked.

245 Themes 3: The British are Coming!

A show of theme tunes and incidental music from British TV spy-and-related series from the Sixties, mostly those from the ITC organisation.  Preshow was music from The Man from UNCLE, the American series that was perhaps the most well-known such series on the International screen.  In the main show we gave you Danger Man, The Avengers, The Saint, The Baron, Man in a Suitcase, The Champions, Department S, Randall and Hopkirk (deceased) and Strange Report, and the postshow was devoted to The Prisoner.

A well attended and popular show, despite being firmly focussed on the British TV scene, with up to 25 connections at one point.
