First part last night was superb, so I'll be saving tonight's too.

More soul on Beeb 4 this Friday, the jewel in the crown of which is at 10pm - Charles Bradley: Soul Of America, an ageing former James Brown tribute act who was signed to Dap-Tone to produce two albums (so far) of classic gut-wrenching old school soul'n'funk - Victim of Love and No Time for Dreaming [Re-Issue]
Preceding that is a repeat of What's Going On; The Life & Death of Marvin Gaye at 9.
Following at 11 is Barry White at the Beeb and at 11.50 Steve Winwood; English Soul

"Agnetha: Abba and after" was a nice hour-long programme shown Tuesday on BBC for anyone with even a passing interest in Abba. Recorded and watched it last night. A necessarily brief skip through her career up to now, with contributions from Agnetha, Benny and Bjorn, but strangely, nothing from Ms.Lyngstad. Agnetha's recording again, and I may have a punt on her new elpee.

I've got her new album and am enjoying it very much. I think the songs are catchy, age-appropriate and there's a few electro-synth beats that give it just enough of a contemporary feel. As usual, she's made some very good song choices and her voice sounds as young as ever.

Yay! At last! Rufus Wainwright is on Radio 3's 'Private Passions' next Sunday.

Of course I do realise this news is of limited interest round here. ;-)

'Private Passions'

I would lower your expectations for this Lez.

Where's Brass gone?

Brass was rubbed out! (In Cambridge for a George Thorogood gig, three day marathon of drinking & eating .... oh and there was a meeting too)

Elvis Costello at Glasto from 5.15 today Beeb 2.

watching - jolly good - sobering thought - 30 years since last saw him live

He's a brilliant showman. I'm a recent convert and I'd never seen him 'til nocheese and I went the other week. You can read our reports on 'What bands.....'

did so - looks like you enjoyed - saw him a number of times (even in ayr), until 'goodbye cruel world', which was a shocker, and i never got back into the way of things.

If they have last night's Arctic Monkeys on catch-up they were utterly brilliant, talk about holding a crowd in t'palm o' thy 'and lad, they were brilliant. Tickets for their tour go on sale next Friday with the Strypes, young Irish indie rockers who were great on Later, as support.

Watching Glasto now on Beeb 3 but you only get one track followed by inane presenter-babble. Haim were on a minute ago, the bassist sister pulls a cross between a toilet-strain & a cum-face all the time when she's not singing, not a good look.

Next Friday on Beeb 4 there are two Wings live programmes;
9pm - a 1 hour edit of the newly rereleased Wings over America
10pm - a documentary form the same tour.

It's part o' me yoof so I'll give it a go. Remember feeling the frustration of having Xmas money but having to wait until after Boxing Day to go buy the triple LP in WH Smiths, agony.

I worked in High Green library occasionally and wondered if I might have seen Alex Turner.
Then I realised he'd still have been in utero when I was there! Sobering thought.

Well you probably saw me at Firth Park so there's always an upside! ;¬)
