I really enjoyed listening to this last night. Richard was great and it was brilliant to hear so many tracks that aren’t usually played on the radio. It was a lovely early Christmas gift!I hope many of you are tuned into BBC Radio 2 now for the “A to Z of Carpenters”. It’s only 15 minutes in and Richard is on fine, confessional and funny form, revealing stuff about their recordings that even those of us who thought we knew everything didn’t! What a festive treat from Malcolm Prince and Graham Norton.
Merry Christmas Darling has been voted the number 1 CHristmas song of all time on the UKs Smooth Radio, beating Wham well and truly into second place. what a fantastic achievement!
My mum just txt me to tell me this haha. Sadly, I missed it, but great trackSteve Wright on Sunday love songs just played What are you doing New Years eve.
I heard that too (I was preparing a hot cheese and bread dip in the kitchen).Sleigh Ride was played on Smooth Radio here in the UK on Christmas Eve, the first time I’ve ever heard it on the radio here.
I've just listened on BBC iPlayer to this track from Steve Wright's show, and for some reason, the playback is in mono. Is anyone else hearing the same? If I'm correct, I'm really disappointed this has happened, the orchestration on this track is a dream in stereo.Steve Wright on Sunday love songs just played What are you doing New Years eve.
How can that be if the track was never released as a mono single and the only source is the stereo album version?I've just listened on BBC iPlayer to this track from Steve Wright's show, and for some reason, the playback is in mono.

Decided to checkout if this song was stereo on BBC iPlayer, glad to verify that it is. One piece of info from DJ Johnny Walker that I never knew, but could be common knowledge, is that Rainy Days And Mondays was originally offered to the 5th Dimension who decided to pass on it. Wondering if anyone else could confirm.Rainy days and Mondays now on Johnny Walker, on BBC radio 2 show sounds of the 70's
Carpenters were sandwiched between Eydie Gorme and the Righteous Brothers. All three tracks sound mono, which is expected for Eydie Gorme and the Righteous Brothers, but not Carpenters.I would expect so. But there are always the possibilities of technical problems somewhere in the audio chain.
