The Cat on "Where The Action Is" Kirkcaldy VRN 1287 AM - Sunday 18 April 2010

It's back to VRN after a week of sunshine in beautiful Strathyre. We'll play two rounds of the Connect 3 game, we'll celebrate the birthday of Manfred Mann multi-instrumentalist Mike Vickers and this week's foreign language track comes from Sandie Shaw. There's also the half-time instrumental, the Trojan Mod Reggae track (any suggestions for a groovy name for this feature?) and there's Two of a Kind from Reparata, with and without the Delrons. We'll also play a track from the brand new Jackie Leven album, "Gothic Road". This month's shows will feature tracks from the Sunshine Pop edition of the Chartbusters USA series, "The Laurie Records Story" and "Phil's Spectre II: Another Wall of Soundalikes".
