Finally getting used to the new CD players although I'd give myself 6 out of 10 for today's show. Always feel it's a waste doing a show when the sun's out. Who knew that summer this year would be a Sunday!

Due to a cock-up the following four tracks should have been played but were replaced by the ones marked with an asterisk:
Diane Renay - Navy Blue (20th Century 1964)
Hash Brown & The Cupcakes - I Got My Job Through The New York Times (Philips 1962)
Tracey Dey - Blue Turns To Grey (Amy 1964)
Wilson Pickett - Don't Let The Green Grass Fool You (Atlantic 1971)

Next week's show has been pre-recorded and has a theme of Names. I'm off to see Camera Obscura and Attic Lights in Glasgow that night. The week after that will be my birthday so I'm going for a Birthday/Celebration/Party theme. Then it's my annual homage to Eurovision...
