The Cat on "Where The Action Is" Kirkcaldy VRN 1287 AM - Sunday 25 April 2010

The sun has well and truly got its hat on, as well as the rest of its holiday clothes, and toddled off somewhere else. Still I'll try and bring some musical sunshine in the shape of "Where the action Is". As usual we'll play two rounds of the Connect 3 game, we'll celebrate the birthday of songwriter Michael Brown and this week's foreign language track comes from Gillian Hills. There's also the half-time instrumental, the Trojan Mod Reggae track (still no suggestions for a groovy name for this feature?) and there's Two of a Kind from Nino Tempo and April Stevens. I'll also be playing another track from the brand new Jackie Leven album, "Gothic Road". For the last time we'll 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".

That's it for this week. Next week will be a self-indulgent Birthday special as it's the day before my big day. I'll be playing tracks by artists who have Paul in their name, or songs/artists about cats (because I'm "The Cat") and a few birthday/party tracks. Until then, it's good day and good health.
