The Murgatroyd Band, Paddy Kingsland, Telltale, Coloma Convent Grammar School, Art Garfunkel and more.

Chart positions

This show was 32nd in the global electronica chart.

Join writer Bob Fischer for a gentle selection of folk music, vintage electronica, school assembly hymns and idle speculation about the Cresta Bear. Maybe support at if you like what you hear? Thanks! Maxwell House please, with two sugars.


Radio Belbury

Brilliant show Bob. Have you ever figured out the lyrics to that Ace of Wands theme ? I can only hear, "Tarot Cards, Tarot Banana Man, Tarot Cards wherever he can."
Bang on a Drum is a belter that needs to be covered by a heavy psych rock band (if only we knew one)

The Haunted Generation

Ha, is that you Jim? Cheers! Is it "Tarot, The Diamond Man"? But it in my head, it's now definitely about Bananaman...

David Fogarty

Many thankings for another excellent show Bob.

The Haunted Generation

Thanks David!


Lovely stuff as always Bob, apart from that ruddy horrible grain pit PIF which genuinely disturbed me!
A Maxwell House with 2 sugars is winging its way to you as we speak...

The Haunted Generation

Oh, thanks Alex - you're a gent. Put a lid on it.

OH GOD! Cross Over The Road. The most dirgy song ever to "grace" our primary school assemblies.

On Wednesday mornings at Easterside Primary we'd have Hymn Practice. This was obviously a source of joy for me, who couldn't carry a tune in an anodised, or indeed any other kind of bucket. So it was that we'd plod through an hour of desultory mumbling, only vaguely corresponding to the musical accompaniment. At the end of the session, they'd actually let us have a request for one we hadn't sung that day. One morning, a kid called Peter Smith put up his hand and asked for this. All five bloody verses of it. The groan from all of us was significantly louder than the actual singing, and he got a sound kicking from the hard lads at playtime for his pains.

The Haunted Generation

You just didn't want to cross over the road without Mr Safety to guide you.
