What a fantastic programme that was. It's on i player now.

I love the song and I think I will leave instructions for it to be played at my funeral. The personal stories about what the song meant to other people were so inspiring and positive.

I've just had Out of the Blue on the hifi. Wonderful music! Did you hear the Radio 2 Jeff Lynn concert in the summer?

No, I didn't but I did see the concert he (or was it supposed to be ELO?) did in Hyde Park last year, which the BBC broadcast on TV. Terrific stuff!

We played it at my dad's funeral, it summed him up perfectly smile

Ooh ShiftyDisco, I'm going to have to spend hours on the Youtubes now, starting with Dogmanaut 2000. Happy days grin

Soul Music is one of my favourite radio programmes. I haven't listened to this one yet, but I've just finished listening to the one on Myfanwy, a song that is very dear to my heart. I recommend you listen only if you're feeling very robust indeed.
