    And that takes us over the fifty mark. Today's haul has included Simon & Garfunkel, The Smiths, and Spinal Tap. If this was radio station I'd listen 24/7.

    Keep 'em coming.

    Back for a second go, and a hit for Alison Moyet all of 32 years ago. Pleased to say I saw her a couple of years ago, still in superb voice.

    Looking through the track listings of a few "Hits of the 70s" compilations, it's almost as if punk never happened - lots of glam rock, soul & disco, but not a lot from the explosion of 77/78. So, to...
