Re: Elvis on Top of the Pops

Absolutely loads of Elvis on the Top of the Pops repeats on BBC4 recently. First of all The Imposter on the eve of the 1983 elections, 20:40 into this. Good to see the audience clapping along. Nice hat and t-shirt:- http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b08k50f2/top-of-the-pops-08061983 Then there wa...

Looking forward to this now. Colin mentions the Philharmonic pub at 6.45. Sounds like a plan?

Re: Elvis on Top of the Pops

Look out for the Christmas Eve 1981 edition being broadcast on BBC4 this Thursday. It features Elvis and the boys performing Sweet Dreams. I remember watching it at the time, a little surprised as the song wasn't in the top 40.

Re: Unfaithful Music & Soundtrack album, Oct 2015

A prized possession. I loved that single at the time so much I splashed out on the 12" version (that goes on and on......). It also has a bigger version of the photo! I will have to look at my booklet tonight. I am sure I worked out which picture they were talking about but I don't think it is ...

What terrible news. I met him briefly after the Liverpool Picket show. What a charming gentleman he was.
RIP Allen and thank you for your music.

Re: Jeremy Vine dancing to 'She' on Strictly Come Dancing this weekend

John, you are obviously not a keen follower of the show. They always use the singers and musicians in the studio and never a recorded track....... so I've been told.

Re: Elvis filming in Liverpool today, Sept 28 2015

Mrs. John heard an interview on local radio station Citytalk in which Elvis said that he was taking his two boys to see their Nan and that he was being followed by an American TV crew covering the tour promoting his book.

Re: T-Bone / Dylan project: Lost On The River

Married To My Hack doesn't do much for me. Lack of melody is a problem. Elvis seems to stumble around " A carburator" or is it just my ears?

Re: Phil Chevron RIP

Phil and the rest of The Pogues provided me with much fun, quality music and excuses to drink.

I remember sitting in a pub in Sheffield in 85/86 before a show when all The Pogues walked in, had a look round, saw it was full of studenty types and then promptly departed.

RIP Phil
