Music for the Masses 2 – 24 November 1999

My second ever radio show took place fifteen years ago today, on Aberystwyth’s student radio station Bay Radio. It may be a little self-indulgent, but as a celebration, this is roughly what the show looked like.


Tracks played on the second show, Wed 24 Nov 1999, from 11am-1pm

Tracks taken from the playlist (Total 12 tracks). A indicates A-list (6 tracks); B indicates B-list (3 tracks) and C indicates C-list (2 tracks). S indicates the Single of the Week. R indicates tracks taken from my own collection (Total 10 tracks). L indicates tracks we grabbed at random in the vain hope of impressing people (Total 8 tracks).

Producer: Karl Homer (I can only presume, unofficially)

Notes: Went very badly on the whole, which is a nuisance. That play button on CD1 is annoying, and it wasn’t just my tools that went wrong – I did too. Still, on the whole a slightly better flow, with a slightly more normal amount of chatter.
