The Cat on "Where The Action Is" Kirkcaldy VRN 1287 AM - Sunday 3 January 2010

A new year, a new decade and a new theme tune for "Where The Action Is". "Bert's Apple Crumble" by The Quik has gone and Floyd Cramer's wonderful "On The Rebound" takes its place. With Santa generously bestowing the "Where The Action Is! LA Nuggets 1965-1968" box set upon me I've taken to loading up all the five January shows with 99 of the 101 tracks available. (I figure Bush's "To Die Alone" isn't really appropriate for hospital radio and The Beach Boys are more than covered by the A to Z feature). Upwards and onwards...
