I caught the end of "Long Lost Family" last night and it was a missing persons special. They got artists to paint a portrait of families missing loved one and had a gallery exhibition. There in the middle was a really, really good painting of Richey...

FD retweeted something the other day to say that the Manics are Mastermind’s specialist subject tomorrow.

Doesn’t seem to be the case according to the Sky planner. Hmm.

7 points, 3 passes and 1 wrong answer (Cate le Bon instead of the Anchoress for the singer on Dylan & Caitlin). Not too bad...
Anyway Tolerate was one of the songs in the final round of the Children in Need special of that 'Hit List' show just now - all the songs were somehow relating to children. Contestants (one from Girls Aloud and another from the Sugababes) didn't get it. Shame.

Better than me. Started off well...remembering Nicky's name....but then well....I didn't remember the Anchoress neither. Could see her, hear the song but the name wouldn't come. I think I'd have to narrow my specialist subject down to well to something else completely but if it had to be the Manics one song......There By the Grace of God. Who wrote it? Marilyn Manson. Ha.

Radio 4s you and yours. Chris Hawkins gave them a nod when mentioning records he loved to get for Christmas in a discussion on whether we buy music in physical form anymore. Radio 6 presenter he be. I'm a radio 4 fan which sounds a true manicy fan thing to say...

A band called Ghost (who from what I can tell are like a fun and more Rock n Roll version of Slipknot) played a familiar tune in the guitar battle portion of their set during a visit to Cardiff...

Not Radio or TV, but I walked into HMV on Leeds on Sunday morning to hear Roses in the Hospital being played! Someone had decided to put National Treasures on which was a nice little surprise.
