The Lemon Circus

Holly Johnson won - as soon as I heard the music I though "OH what's this one I know it! I know it!" lovely to be reminded of a true classic. OMD, Kim Wilde, Paul Young - there was definatley a Valentine feel in the air to this one. John Foxx and Evelyn Thomas new ones to me, and very nice they were too. A fantastic mix of Situation (loads of them all worthy of a listen, but usually still very short - this one seemed a wee bit longer than most) Greta set matey :)

Thanks bud, you are right regards Yazoo's "Situation", various remixes but never what I would call a proper 12 inch version that was extended. Glad you liked the music on the show, as ever, thank you for listening.

Joel Newnham

The 1st single I owned was 'Holding out for a hero' on 12", my Mum bought it for me cos I was only 9. I bought 12" when singles in the top 40 anymore and the 7" were no longer available in Our Price, Woolworths or WHSmiths. 12" mixes were also useful for Bruno Brookes if he got ahead of himself in the very strictly timed top 40 countdown. I assume you "Introspective" by the Pet Shop Boys, an album containing 12" mixes only. I haven't heard the remixes of these classic 80s before, I love how they've been experimented with, moving away from the 'How to make a hit record' handbook. Great stuff, thanks for sharing

Thanks Joel, sounds like me you are very passionate about those 80s 12 inch singles like me, I wish bands would do more of them these days instead of butchering tracks and making them unrecognizable! "Introspective" is one of my all time favourite albums. I remember Our Price records, I use to go to places like Woolworths, Our Price, Virgin Records and HMV during my lunch breaks every day!

Glad you liked the show and that is sparked off some memories for you. Thanks for listening and for the comments.
