Christian was so quick you didn't have time to put the track list up :). Loved the Alison Moyet and Frankie songs the best. Haven't heard that Ultravox song before, but it's a good one. Not Hazel Dean at her best. A great representation of the 80s, good job!

Thank you Joel for listening, I think myself, you and Christian have a very similar taste in music :)

The Lemon Circus

the Cure invented jangly guitar pop, been a whole while before I heard A Forest - worth the wait. That is an epic version of Paul young, lovely song though. What else caught my ears? Oh there was Invisible - Alison Moyet, superb. Great version of FGTH Welcome To The Pleasuredome. I remeber Stanglers Skin Deep, another fab track and plenty of artists I know just not the tracks - marvellous discovery hour :)

"A Forest" is in my Top 3 Cure tracks! An interesting fact for you, I started and electronic band in 1989 and was trying to think of a name for the group, I was in HMV and they were playing "Skin Deep" by The Stranglers, a eureka moment, Skin Deep became the name of the Band!

Glad you enjoyed listening to the show mate.
