Random jukebox – The All Seeing I feat. Tony Christie

Arguably the best thing The All Seeing I did was drag Tony Christie out of retirement for his exceptional vocals on their album Pickled Eggs & Sherbet. Here he is, delivering a great vocal on Walk Like a Panther:

Music for the Masses 24 – 31 October 2004

The last Sunday in October 2004 saw the last ever (to date) FM outing of the Music for the Masses show. While this was something of a shame, not having to get up at 3am every Sunday morning and cycle across a bleak northern city was generally a good thing. And since I didn’t know whether this could even be my last ever radio show, the obvious choice for Artist of the Week was my long-time favourite act, Pet Shop Boys.

Broadcast on LSR FM, on FM and online. Artist of the week: Pet Shop Boys.

Music for the Masses 10 – 23 February 2000

By February 2000, it seems Bay Radio was actually starting to run pretty smoothly, and my show was starting to go pretty well. Although I was still having problems with timing…
