What size is your Virgin package?!! We're too tight (was born in Sheffield after all) so we only have the large package not the Linford Christie!

Friday 26 Aug Beeb 3 - a right old mixed bag;

7.30 - Spaghetti Western Orchestra (hmm, maybe?)
8.50 - Gilbert O'Sullivan - Out On His Own (that's going to push someone's buttons?)
9.50 - OMG! Sight & Sound - 78 concert geaturing G O'S but also ............ Chris De Bleurgh! (Ohhhhhh yes!)
10.50 - Kings of 70's Romance - fantasy figures of 70's pop world (your guess is as good as mine; my fantasies in the 70s were Kate Bush, Suzi Quattro and the Runaways!)
11.50 - Santana Story (worth a look?)
1.05 - Even More Guitar Heroes @ Beeb (good but seen it & recorded it).

I know you'll all be setting your recorders for 9.50; unmissable! CdB roools!

Sunday 4 Sept Beeb 4 - repeat of Friday night's When Rock Goes To Sleep .... sorry I meant.....Acoustic at 11 followed by Acoustic at the Beeb at 12 and then Springsteen's Seeger Sessions.

Next Friday/Sunday, boy what a treat, 3 Doris Day progs starting at 9 and repeated at 11.50 so no excuse for not setting your machines to record .... I know I won't!

Tonight on Beeb 4 repeat of OGWT compilations - some really good stuff - Vinegar Joe with a mad sassy Elkie Brooks, SAHB next, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Roxy, etc. The middle programme has too many talking heads and not enough clips though.

Think BBC Alba's only Scotland but tonight (Thurs. at 11.20 there's a repeat of the first Transatlantic Sessions with Aly Bain etc.
I'm hoping it's the one with the lovely Rufus!
