It’s been a while since I fell in love with a song I heard on the radio. Love this one.

Take Back the Radio by Katy J Pearson


I grew up on buying vinyl records but I’m not wholly back into the resurgence of the format. I’ll buy the odd special edition but I just don’t have the energy to care about looking after a new collection.

Cardiacs' Tim Smith: a one-man subculture who inspired total devotion | Music | The Guardian:

Tim Smith, who has died aged 59, made a bizarre kind of rock music that was so wrong it was right – and his boundless enthusiasm was so infectious it created an army of followers.

Kraftwerk: their 30 greatest songs, ranked! | Music | The Guardian:

From cycling soundtracks to anti-nuclear protest music, we celebrate the work of the late Florian Schneider and the groundbreaking group he co-founded

Good list.

Oh, won’t you stay

We’ll put on the day

And we’ll talk

In present tenses

Joni Mitchell, Chelsea Morning πŸ’¬πŸŽ΅

Sad to hear that Dave Greenfield of The Stranglers has died. The Black and White album was one of the first records I ever bought and I still have the same copy.

This “mistake” is more interesting than the other photos I took at the Drygate Brewery in Glasgow last night. I was there to see the great Norwegian band Wobbler play in the city for the first time. I hope they come back very soon.

Here’s a song for Sunday. Beloved by Firefly Burning 🎡

“Take me to the fantastic place
Keep the rest of my life away”

A highlight of the recent Marillion shows.… 🎡

Fantastic Marillion show in Glasgow tonight. Seasons End, their climate change song written in 1989, was spine-tingling with the addition of live strings and brass.

🎡 The Blue Nile - Stay. Yes, I’m resorting to a song for today’s Microblogvember prompt but it is The Blue Nile after all.

🎡 I’ve been smitten by this band. Sweet Billy Pilgrim - Asking For A Friend

I watched the Bob Dylan/Rolling Thunder Revue documentary on Netflix. Wonderful stuff from start to finish. The bit where Joni Mitchell, Dylan, and Roger McGuinn played β€œCoyote” was a highlight.

Louis Cole & Genevieve Artadi of KNOWER feat. by WDR BIG BAND: Gotta Be Another Way | REHEARSAL. KNOWER plus big band. This is great. 🎡

🎢 Alive. Really loving the new song from Big Big Train.

Bob Mould has a great new album out. You can always depend on Bob. 🎢

I’ve grown to really love Mixcloud. It’s not just about DJs and dance music. You’ll find something there no matter what your taste in music is. 🎡

🎢 This guy is amazing. Chassol - Big Sun Apple or Spotify

Christmas Time Is Here - Khruangbin. I love this version. 🎢 πŸŽ„

🎡 Sunday afternoon tunes. Primrose Green by Ryley Walker (iTunes). Recommended for all you John Martyn/Nick Drake/Pentangle/Tim Buckley fans.
