You might see a few posts like this one in the coming weeks, as people seem to like naming songs after years in this range. Today, it’s post number 1,980 on this blog, so here are the lovely Groove Armada, with 1980.
The post-Easter run of shows introduced two new features, both pre-recorded mixes. The Live Bit consisted of ten minutes or so of live material, while the Electromix was a trio of dark electronic tracks mixed together. I had a lot of fun with this week’s by trying to censor My Robot Friend‘s track in creative ways.

The Live Bit and Electromix features from this show both still exist, and will appear in a future Playlist for stowaways.
Always keen to try new features on the show, the Spring term had seen my try out the Unsigned Act feature, where I would try to give a new or unsigned artist a bit of free airtime, with no strings attached (well, except they had to be good). In the end, it was a bit of a failure, as pretty much everyone who showed an interest failed to submit anything on time. One of the few exceptions was Blue Swan, whom we also covered here on the blog.
