Put The Needle On The Record…

Does anyone remember a show on Radio 1 (in the 247 Medium Wave era) called ‘My Top Twelve’? It was kind of like Desert Island Discs but for pop musicians. Saturday mornings, hosted by (I think) Paul Gambaccini. It was the first place I ever heard Van Morrison (courtesy of Leo Sayer, believe it or not) and where I learned that Art Garfunkel and Paul Simon had fallen out. From Art Garfunkel. This was all news to a very young me. Anyway this blog is going to be a bit like that show – except it’s me, not Leo or Artie, choosing and chuntering about records and recordings, songs and singers, music and musicians of many flavours. As Brian Wilson said, well, well, you’re welcome…
