    Publix continues to be a great vehicle... Sadly, at my Publix, they're now playing 80s music --- not that there's anything wrong with that! :)

    Funny thing...about the 80's music...that is when I turned to Country and "Hair" Bands !
    Well, as we know "every rose has its thorn,"
    so, "pour some sugar on me," and
    "take on me" !

    I heard "A Kind of Hush" on Sirius XM this morning. This is probably the first time I have heard it on any radio format since its original release.

    Ken Bruce show BBC Radio 2 played All You Get From Love Is A Love Song.
    Great radio song, not aware of any remixes for this song, but over the radio it sounded different from the album mix on Passage.

    "Top of the World" and "I Won't Last a Day..." on @TJL's radio show this Friday night. Certainly caught me off-guard (in a good way!). If the requester is lurking out there, thank you! And of course, thank you to Mr. Lubinsky. :)

    I decided to listen again to Ken Bruce and the song sounds as if it's been speeded up ever so slightly with a touch of reverb added, and was played from the album Singles 1974-1978.

    Mark Goodier BBC Radio 2 played Ticket To Ride. Can't remember hearing this on the radio before, sounded amazing. The decision to go back in to the studio and redo everything, resulted in this terrific version.
  13. I heard that chris and was rather surprised myself, given it`s not played that often!
    still an honour to hear that girls voice, wow!

    All the songs he was playing in the show were to a theme, all of them had a Beatles connection.

  18. 'For All We Know' on kmzt Los Angeles the other day. (the original, not the Matt Pop version!) The playlist mostly has jazz vocals, Ella, Sinatra, so it was a nice surprise.

    Yesterday Once More. BBC Radio 2.
  20. While channel surfing on the car radio on the way home from work last evening, I stumbled across SiriusXM Radio Channel 17 (Holly) which is already playing holiday tunes! I thought at first, "No, it's too soon!", until I heard that wonderful voice opening with that wonderful classic lyric - "Greeting cards have all been sent..." I quickly changed my mind - so bring out the holly and mistletoe to welcome the Carpenters at Christmas!
  21. Same Channel: Home for the Holiday's last night and then Sleigh Ride on my way to lunch today.

    :)Yesterday at work. We were just starting our day getting ready for customers, we turned on the radio: first song? Top of the World ( single version). Great start to the day, for me.

    It was quite a nice surprise to hear "Close to You" at the YMCA this morning. And it was funny to see one of the muscle heads singing along.
