It was just that. A regular show!

I couldn’t classify this mornings show as “Punk” and it certainly couldn’t be new wave so it was just a regular show! I was doing ok until right up to the point where I should have played Blondie’s “Atomic”, instead it ended up being the B-52’s “Rock Lobster”, it was like going from 4th gear to 1st. A show should have a natural flow and as you can see from the list, the music was peaking with the Dead Kennedy’s and Blondie would have been a way back down to lighter music. It would have been much better to segue from Atomic and then Rock Lobster. As one of my favorite journalists Linda Ellerbee always said “and so it goes”. I think that should do it with themed shows for a while.
