Music for the Masses 8 – 9 February 2000

Way back in the distant past, I used to do a student radio show for Bay Radio in Aberystwyth called Music for the Masses. Show 8 would have sounded a little bit like this…

Notes: The second in the “me against the world” week, which was probably less good than its predecessor, completely uneventful, and once again I decided the Rag Week jingle was rubbish. Oh yeah, and while I had far too many tracks the previous day, for this show I had far too few. You never can be too careful…

Music for the Masses 7 – 8 February 2000

By early February, Kraftwerk had made it onto the A-list on Bay Radio, so I was able to play them without needing an excuse!

Notes: Hmm… well apart from (a) complete and utter chaos for the first half hour; (b) an appalling Rag Week jingle that I was supposed to play every 15 minutes but decided to read out instead, and (c) lots of other things, that went about as smoothly as a fairly smooth thing.
