Hi Chris, LOVE this XTC song—still sounds great, 40 years on. Yikes!

I’m trying to think of the phone numbers that were used during CKCU’s Funding Drives. The one that comes to mind is 520-3920 (I think). They would make this into a song or chant. I THINK that was the number they used.

Chris Lyne (host)
Not sure off the top of my head Shelley, but it was a number that was essential to get 100% spot on!

I could be completely off here, but did Tom Robinson do a song about driving on a highway—1…2…3.. 4.. (I don’t remember the rest of the words). I THINK it was Tom Robinson…..

It was Shelley: 2-4-6-8 motorway .

Oh—and you can guess where I first heard that song. The Mighty 93.

10:27 PM, March 7th, 2023
Chris Lyne (host)
93.1: our famous and favourite sequence ! :-)

19th nervous breakdown

Chris Lyne (host)
Let's hope there isn't a 20th, "19 nb"

oh my goodness, it's snowing outside. (Not necessarily in Ottawa, though)

10:50 PM, March 7th, 2023
Shelley Ann Morris
Snowing? I am really really stumped. I don’t know which one of these songs is the odd one out. There is such a variety here.

10:55 PM, March 7th, 2023
HA! Listening in .. For a while there i thought i must have accidentally tuned into Sesame Street radio / The Count shoooow. OK, i got the dial dialed now... ;^)

Chris Lyne (host)
Glad you got there by the end PB (and didn't confuse it with the BBC World Service either) :-)

10:58 PM, March 7th, 2023
Chris Lyne (host)
That dreaded odd one out eh, Shelley? :-) Mystery revealed next time :-)

10:59 PM, March 7th, 2023
Chris Lyne (host)
Good night everyone, thanks for joining in. I'm off to make a moonlit snowman...

11:00 PM, March 7th, 2023
Shelley Ann Morris
I think I've got it. It was the very last song as it wasn't a sequence, just 007? All will be revealed in a fortnight's time.

PeterB, if you see this, remember the song you introduced us to, called "Eleven" by Autorickshaw.

8:05 AM, March 8th, 2023
Chris Lyne (host)
Oh Shelley, never known you to be so far away from the correct answer! 007 is definitely a number sequence, and, funnily enough, it was one of the first tunes that came to mind when putting the playlist together. (You can have as many tries as you like for your money. ) I hope you enjoyed the very different version :-)
