The Friday Rock Show

Fri 25 Aug 2006 - Filed under: Not a Journal., | Posted by: Gavin

Google leads to 87.9 somewhere a couple of months ago where a guy named Alex put together a show of live tracks and included the Sisters of Mercy playing Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” (starts at about 37.5 minutes [99MB file]).

Long ago there was a break-in at Small Beer central and someone removed our UniVac Central Computational System which included a copy of this song. (Hope they enjoyed it.) Since then there have been occasional looks for it on the web but nothing serious. Now it is Ours, Ours again. Before that? Someone else had it in a shared flat sometime in the late eighties. Someone, somewhere.
El DJ man also plays The Stranglers, Joy Division, OMD, The Smiths, Gang of Four, Toyah, Dead Kennedys, Nirvana, and ends it with Depeche Mode’s last song from their sold out show at the Pasadena Rose Bowl! (he says) in 1988.

Title? Radio 1 show on, yes, Friday night.
