The One Before The Birthday Show

All alone again, with Penny on holiday, with nobody to stand in I did the show alone and rather than talk to myself, I bombarded the lucky listener with some of the best music that was ever made.

"Music you don't hear on the radio, on the radio"
Thinking of getting car stickers made with that on. I should also get stickers made with the quotes on; "the best BBC 6Music show that isn't on BBC 6 Music, yet", and my favourite comment, "the reason computers have speakers".

The show started with tributes to Hal David and Max Bygraves.
