Random jukebox – Gloworm

Recently revived by Chicane for his new album, here’s an otherwise forgotten piece of electronic pop from the early 1990s, the exceptional voice of Gloworm, with the stirring Carry Me Home. There never was an album, and that’s a bit of a shame, as they were rather good.

Music for the Masses 36 – 16 March 2005

Show 36 was the last before the three week Easter break, and would see Music for the Masses in its springtime Wednesday slot for the last time. Actually, it could have even been the last outing of the show, as the post-holiday scheduling shakeup always meant a few shows dropped out. Fortunately – or unfortunately – it lived on to die another day, this week with New Order as the Artist of the Week.

Music for the Masses 26 – 15 November 2004

The second Monday evening show saw the station’s webcam working for the first time in 2004, which therefore meant me (right) and my special guest Carl (left) spent much of the show trying to get ourselves seen on the internets.
