We're Getting The Band Back Together, Whether You Like It Or Not!

A good bit of interaction this week, which is one of the many reasons I am glad to be doing the show live. Today's subject was inspired by the reformation of The Stone Roses, an opinion divider if ever there was one, about bands that you'd like to see reform. We strayed away from the unsigned element of the show for large periods of time, but we enjoyed it. Also, as my daughter was sat at home listening, I played some Bon Jovi for her. Please accept my apologies for this, and be assured that this is still the coolest radio show going.

George Robey 'I Stopped! I Looked! I Listened!' (always like to start with a classic bit of music hall ditty)

Obsessive Compulsive 'Man vs Machine'
Gorillaz 'Feel Good Inc'
Separation Envy 'Ashes To Embers'
Edenshade 'Consequences'
Bon Jovi 'Living On A Prayer' (please read the introduction to the set-list for a good reason why I chipped away at my credibility to play this)
The Stone Roses 'I Am The Resurrection'
Showaddywaddy 'Hey Rock And Roll'*
