28th May

1981: Hazel O'Connor tries to look stentorian while sitting down

1987: Disco medleys came into fashion at the start of the 80s, waned some time around Hokoed On Classics, then were subject to a one band revival attempt. That band were Mirage and their public face weren't so much dancers as side to side prancers. How different from The Housemartins and their "banana shaped song".

2006: The whole of this one is up, uploaded by a big and perhaps increasingly lonely fan of Preston, who co-hosts seemingly without having come across the concept of reading out loud before. Part one features Matt Willis going for a stagedive, chickening out at the last minute and ending up singing back at the stage to little effect, plus Corinne Bailey Rae doing none of that. Part two features the Zutons and Nerina Pallot, part three Nelly Furtado and Primal Scream, part four Sandi Thom and the celebrated Gnarls Barkley again.
