Drawing a blank?

6:03 PM, May 15th, 2021
Enjoyed the dub sounds of Massive Attack while I BBQ on this fine evening

6:14 PM, May 15th, 2021
Did you see that there are 2 playlists for tonight showing up

6:15 PM, May 15th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
It's a perfect evening, Wally. Yeah, there are 2 playlists... I'd say "twice the fun" but it's really only a glitch

6:17 PM, May 15th, 2021
I'm ignoring the other playlist.

6:28 PM, May 15th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
Ignore at your peril, Jeb. Otherwise it's a one-song show...

6:31 PM, May 15th, 2021
The Stroppies have that Chills sound

7:02 PM, May 15th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
Big Time Chills sound. On that note, new Chills album just out.

7:07 PM, May 15th, 2021
Yes I saw that advertised but haven't picked up a copy yet, it's on my ever growing wish list 😂. Did you see the film about The Chills?

7:09 PM, May 15th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
Haven't seen the film. Plan to, though.

7:10 PM, May 15th, 2021
Love that cover of Vegetable Man, sort of like a rough Jonathan Richman, must look for more stuff by Les Little Searchers

Best David Hemmings film is Blow Up in my view. Never realized he sang. Like that Mad Professor mix of the Massive Attack tune. Used be in my ol' neck of the woods. Now in Croydon area (a fact you probably didn't need to know).

7:35 PM, May 15th, 2021
Steve Kirkland (host)
I love Blow Up. The fashion, the cars, the music (the live Yardbirds), the city, the tone...

7:45 PM, May 15th, 2021

Good Night all

8:07 PM, May 15th, 2021
PROBLEM! No 'LISTEN NOW' button appears for either one, so this archive's not playable right now!

8:17 PM, May 15th, 2021
IGNORE the previous complaint: the LISTEN NOW has appeared after my latest refresh (around 8:17)

8:18 PM, May 15th, 2021
Dave JC.
Exactly why I love it too.
