England’s Dreaming – Tuesday 24th
This weeks kicks off again with yet another track from my favourite album of the era – I haven’t milked this album quite enough yet!I will also be giving a first airing in ‘England’s Dreaming’ to Crack, GBH, Adicts, Gang Green and Discharge.I will be taking you warmly back to the late 70s with familiar gems from The Clash, Buzzcocks and Boomtown Rats combined with some random 3 minute blasts from Stranglers, Rezillos, Misfits, Stooges and XTC.The growing legend that is the ‘Cover 2 Cover’ slot features a trip back to the early 60s with Larry Williams and Rolling Stones covered in our familiar punk way.The ‘Go 2 Extremes’ slot, where we feature two diverse sides of punk and new wave legends, has a spotlight on Japan.The Punk National Anthem will lead you into hump day.
The Final Countdown Rock Show – Wednesday 25th
The Lyme Bay Radio rock show continues the frankly ridiculously epic Top 1000 most successful rock and metal songs of all time this week counting down the numbers from #364-#335This week you will hear some legendary rock epics from Green Day, Limp Bizkit, Aerosmith, Offspring, Judas Priest, Pearl Jam and many more as the countdown climbs ever upwards towards that definitive number one.
The Classic Rock Album of the Week is a New York thrash epic from 1987.
I will be slotting in a couple of new tracks from AC/DC and Bring Me the Horizon and the ‘Onwards and Upwards’ slot features a great new band called Molly Karloff.
Batten down there batches and turn it up to 11…
Acceptable in the 80s – Friday 27th
This week we go back 31 years to the imminent closure of this brilliant decade as I will take you by the hand and take you with me to November 1989.A definitive and pivotal moment occurred this week on Top of the Pops when Happy Mondays played followed by Stone Roses. The musical landscape was changing and we have plenty of evidence of Manchester in this weeks chart.There did however remain regular 80s stalwarts including UB40, Eurythmics, Fine Young Cannibals and Phil Collins. We will be switching from Luther Vandross to Iron Maiden; D Mob to Morrissey; Belinda Carlisle to Inspiral Carpets.
Come back to the 80s with me. You’re safe. And it’s all acceptable.
No.1s Show – Saturday 28thAs we head closer to the festive period, theNumber Ones get more random which keeps you on your toes with guessing those years.
As ever each song was the biggest selling single this very week in the last 60 years.
I will play a track from two No.1 albums from this week in 1975 and 2013 and we close the show with those US No.1s that didn’t make it all the way to the top over here but realistically should have done from 1964, 1971 and 2005.
Let’s get each other through lockdown.
Big love and stay safe
