Two hours of Thameside Radio with Bob Edwards between 9 and 11pm
this Sunday. He has a demo from South Side Dynamos, chats about how
often we have baths and pays a lot of Status Quo. Sarah from Kew
turns up. She’s been down the pub with The Birdman. (She’s
definitely grown older while we’ve been listening over the last few
years hasn’t she?) Dave talks about the new fangled Walkman
radios – and mentions obliquely listening in to the Home
Office radio channels on the Bernardphone.
Bob chats with some of the crew about the favourite songs. We discover that:
Dave’s favourite record is Grooving with Mr Bloe by Mister Bloe which he remembers from the juke box at The Macabre coffee bar in Meard Street in Soho. (Probably the coolest place in the universe in the 60s)
Sarah’s favourite record is Follow you Follow me by Genesis. It reminds her of her 16th birthday party which ended in total chaos with broken banisters and broken doors. (How did she explain it all to her long suffering parents?)
Bob’s fave is Dire Straits and Skateaway.
Wow – I’m now right back to my teens – endless summer, endless music, no responsibilities and amazing parties.
