Very slightly off tangent - has anyone been following Stuart Maconie's series on BBC Radio 2? It's called The People's Songs Premise is that it tells the story of modern Britain since World War II via the songs that provided a soundtrack over the past 70 years.

Take a peek and listen ... there have been some outstanding episodes so far!

Just listening to the last episode now (we don't need no education) Sort of reminds me of the Radio Ballads, but with pop music instead of folk. Thanks for the link

Glad you are enjoying it. I've been listening since beginning of the year - there have been some great episodes and the narrative from ordinary folks brings back loads of memories - dance floors in the 70's, falklands war, northern indie music. Great music for everyone.

Keep on listening! J

I have to say....thanks for posting that MK. I am a huge Dire Straits fan, and their cd is always in my glove compartment. A very modest man, no screaming for attention like others, and one of the greatest guitarists of all times

But hang on a minute @right about the 2:11 mark...Is that a guitar pick I see?

Here is my contribution

Money for nowt



Tearing us apart



For giggle...a Rob Ford Aria by the Calgary Opera



Human...the killers

Its not just music for your nan to listen to, its also great stuff for that impromptu office karaoke session after a few cheeky pints at lunch.
