All I wanna do........

It's another cold morning in Cambridgeshire - I can't wait till it's summer! So what can I tell you about today? Not a great deal happened yesterday other than me recording this week's Pure Grooves show in the morning and a whole load of other mundane tasks. Fortunately, I was out doing Requestfest last night. So it wasn't all bad.

Once again, we had a mixture of people there. The age range seems to be 20-60 most weeks there. I sometimes wish that the older people in the pub made more requests, as I seem to get most from the younger people. It would be really nice to get a few soul lovers in as well. I like most types of music, but a bit more soul would balance it up. I could certainly do with less charty stuff. There really doesn't seem to be too much of any real quality in what I get requested that's newish.

Anyway, here's the play list.

I will say though, it was a nice change to hear Ian Dury. I remember when the 'New Boots and Panties' album came out how different it was. I have to say I always liked Ian Dury, so to get 'Billericay Dickie' requested was a nice change.

What is it with child pop stars? Willow Smith, I'm led to believe (I can't be bothered to find out) is Will Smith's 10 year old daughter. I had her single requested last night. It's just awful - to my mind she made Little Jimmy Osmond sound great! And why would anyone over 10 request it?

At the same time, I have to confess that I like Duck Sauce's 'Barbra Streisand'. But for the life of me I don't know why. The whole song is based around a sample of Boney M's 'Gotta Go Home' and they just substituted  one 4 syllable lyric for another. Perhaps I was a closet Boney M fan.

I always seem to get a few 80s pop hits as well. Still, someone's gotta do it!

I even had a request from someone who wasn't there and it was possibly the tune of the night. Before I went last night, a facebook friend of mine asked me to play 'Kasenetz - Katz Singing Orchestral Chorus - Quick Joey Small (Run Joey Run),' so I did. I really hope he enjoyed it.

Right I'm off to College soon to continue with my new college course. Catch you later....
