I was getting myself ready for check-out of the hotel as this was playing over the radio on Friday morning, so I was only half tuned in. All I could pick up was that it was sounding stonking…and despite Jim being under the weather, he was sounding great. But I certainly heard the “black pudden” [sic] line. Lol
Of not just ONE but TWO songs from the album!
From 7.30am on BBC Radio 2 – the official airing (finally legit!) of Magic – and from 4.30pm on BBC Radio 6 Music – and airing of The Signal And The Noise!
Simple Minds are playing a very special concert for Radio 2 (also will be on the Red Button on the TV) on November 10th at Hackney Empire – AND I’m GOING!!! Row C, seats 11&12!!
I cannot express how bloody happy I am. I’ve never been to Hackney Empire before and I cannot wait. It is going to be the BEST NIGHT EVER! And WHAT A BELATED BIRTHDAY PRESENT! So, so, so over the moon.
A Kerrsday Thursday to end ALL Kerrsday Thursdays!
‘Don’t You (Forget About Me) – Radio Acoustic Version 2014’ by Simple Minds
This song has been the bane of my new, empassioned Simple Minds fandom. Jim, Charlie Burchill and Mark Kerr did this version on Radio 2 on the Chris Evans Breakfast Show on Friday morning (Sept 26th, 2014) – and I feel it is now acceptable once again to listen to it. For a performance at 8.30am in the morning, it’s mighty fine! And yes, like any other teenager in the 80s, I bloody loved The Breakfast Club. I’ve never been that gone on “Don’t You” though…til now.
