Session #17 – 28 July 2017 – Theme: Utterly Random

The plan this week was to include music by a band found on twitter: HPKNS. With a grungy sound and vicious guitar riffs, I found their style to suit the mood when I am editing lots of photographs. So I tweeted them a request for a CD and permission to play on radio. They were only too obliging. Unfortunately the CD won’t play on my computer. Working on that issue for next week. Sorry guys!

So I settled for an utterly random selection including a lot of songs in my ever-growing database that even I hadn’t spent time to listen fully!

Some songs were chosen to show a friend that not all rap-songs are bad. In fact, a lot have made their way into the top 40 mix across the world. Can you pick them?

What is the ‘Sneaker Advert’?
During my set I tried to sell the shoes I was wearing – green Converse AllStars. I was selling for three reasons:

  1. To see what my chances were of getting nice hot flat-white coffee delivered to the station,
  2. To sell them to someone whose feet they would fit better,
  3. And maybe to determine the demographic of my listeners.

Eating AloneAlas, it was all in vain, it didn’t happen. On the upside, an idea was born – and agreed upon.
We will auction the cooking skills of our commander & chief, Gethin Creagh.
This project will happen soon.

Thanks for listening to my show, it was a great morning!

PostScript: Anyone else notice how much U2 I manage to include in my weekly playlists? It should come as no surprise that I am a big fan of U2!
