Playing tracks by
Ian Dury & The Blockheads, Chris Difford & Dorie Jackson, The Smiths, Shane MacGowan & The Popes, UB40 and more.
It wasn’t intended to be, but it’s a bit of a political beast of a show this one.
Early doors in preparation for this show, I popped a couple of politically motivated tunes on the playlist, before I hit upon the thought of promoting Mr Billy Bragg’s forthcoming tour where he will be championing a bunch of young artists with political voices by playing a track from each of them in a kind of alternative Packet Of Three.
In the actual Packet Of Three, my younger brother Jimi assists by choosing his top 3 tracks by his current obsession The Smiths and in Connect Four we test your ability to spot a pointless link between 4 quality tunes.
All of that amid a right old mixture of pop sounds and me waffling on inbetween, all in the name of entertainment.
