It was a month. Almost a whole month between shows. I had this big ribbon cutting and open house, then my “big project” that I’ve talked about each year for the last 10 years. Those things took precedence. Sorry, but it had to be done. I hope I’m back on track, now, though.
So, this week, went off without a hitch; no glitches. The theme was artists/bands from Manchester, England. At least one member of the band had to have been from the Manchester area. I thought it was a good show. Here’s the set list:
The Smiths – Stop Me If You Think That You’ve Heard This One Before
Morrissey – We Hate It When our Friends Are Successful
Johnny Marr – My Eternal
Electronic – The Patience of a Saint
Joy Division – Twenty-Four Hours
New Order – Ceremony
Bee Gees – Stayin’ Alive
Andy Gibb – Shadow Dancing
10cc – The Things We Do For Love
Buzzcocks – Ever Fallen In Love?
Magazine – Rhythm of Cruelty
Happy Mondays – Wrote for Luck
The Passage – Carnal
Herman’s Hermits – Mrs Brown You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter
Hollies – He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother
Monkees – A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You
John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers – Key to Love
Wayne Fontana & The Mindbenders – The Game of Love
ABC – Poison Arrow
Gang of Four – Damaged Goods
Simply Red – Money’s Too Tight
Inspiral Carpets – Move
The Stone Roses – She Bangs the Drums
The Outfield – Everytime You Cry
The Cult – Sweet Soul Sister
Oasis – Supersonic
James – Come Home
(Bleeding into the third hour)
When In Rome – The Promise
Starsailor – Fever
Swing Out Sister – Breakout
So what is your favorite artist or band from Manchester? Did I leave any out? I know I did, it was a two hour show, we would have needed a lot more hours. But, I will continue to find cities/states/countries with rich musical histories to highlight on this show!
Do you have ideas for show topics? I’d really love to hear your ideas because eventually (any day now), I’m going to run out of things to talk about out of my feeble brain.
Also, you don’t have to be “local” to listen. We are an internet-based radio station and are licensed to broadcast anywhere in the US, Canada, and the UK. We broadcast out of the Omniverus Studios at Liberty Plaza.
Your next question may be: well, how do we listen? We have you covered on that. The Camel City Radio app is available on both the Apple Play and Google Play stores, so we are compatible with any iOS or Android device. Also, we now have our Alexa Skill. All you have to do is say, “Alexa, play Camel City” and Bob’s your uncle. You don’t even have to say “radio” (because she takes me to some weird Pandora channel). Just “Camel City.”
You can comment here, send an email or call 336-462-8660 and leave a voicemail. We will play your VM on the air (unless you tell us not to).
Listen to The BCPF’s Rose Garden of Doom on Saturday mornings at 10a-until. Eugene has The Non-Conformist Cult Radio Show on Friday Nights, 8p-midnight!
Until next time, same blog channel at some blog time…
“You spurn my natural emotions. You make me feel like dirt and I’m hurt. And if I start a commotion, I run the risk of losing you and that’s worse. Ever fallen in love with someone? Ever fallen in love, in love with someone?
Ever fallen in love, in love with someone you shouldn’t have fallen in love with?” – “Ever Fallen In Love?” (Shelley)
