Monday nights University Challenge played Faster in the music round "90s Songs with Flim Clips" the University team had no clue what's so ever. Think one of them said Green Day.

Forgotten the sixties one.
70's was Roll Away The Stone. And even then he said that was James's idea.
Going Underground from the 80's.
Yes by McAlmont and Butler for 90's
Can't Stand Me Now for 2000's.
Video Games by Lana Del Rey for 2010's.
And I think he picked Orwellian for 2020's.

Forgotten what was picked for sixties. I did download Absolute player but the amount of fucking adverts you had to sit through when changing channels was torture!
EDIT: Probably nothing from the sixties as it was five decades so maybe Orwellian played as a treat.

Nicky Wire due on BBC R2's Sounds Of The 90's tonight at ten.

Yesterday, I watched some old episodes of Coronation Street and they played The Everlasting in one of the episodes. Today, I watched some more old episodes of Coronation Street and they played If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next in one of the episodes.

They get played on Corrie lots, I remember Journal for plague lovers being played once.

I keep hoping to find the east Enders episode where terry bought masses of the market stall. There was also an episode regarding a noise complaint and stay beautiful was being blasted out!!

I was watching a program on music photography on PBS last night (a bit like a poorly funded BBC) and it featured Nicky talking about Polaroids and music posters! First and only time I have ever seen the Manics on TV in the US.

Getting into these guys after a Spotify algorithm bump:

Desperate Journalist - Personality Girlfriend

Motown Junk 7” spotted at around the 01:40 mark!

(From that, and their general attire, I’m guessing they’re Manics fans - could well be behind the curve here, maybe they’ve been mentioned here before…?)

Not quite tv/radio, but I was on a Qatari airways flight the other day that had the demo of A Song For The Sadness on its rock playlist.

That gave me a double take when I heard it, given the song and what nicky’s thoughts are on the champagne socialists that were worming their way into no. 10 at the time. I can well imagine whoever chose it knew exactly what they were doing.

Disk beginning to rotate, faster, becoming a sphere of paler gray. Expanding -

Inner eye opening to the stepped scarlet pyramid of the Eastern Seaboard Fission Authority burning beyond the green cubes of Mitsubishi Bank of America,
and high and very far away he saw the spiral arms of military systems, forever beyond his reach.
And somewhere he was laughing, in a white-painted loft, distant fingers caressing the deck, tears of release streaking his face.
