Anyone else have any good ones they use?
Nice! What area do you have to be in to receive those (or is it DAB or Internet radio)

Whoops - didn't notice that they were links as my browser didn't underline them like it normally does (how odd!?!)

It's not your browser, it's the daft settings of this forum. I've moaned a few times about it, but nothing has been said about changing it. I usually manually add the underline, but it's a hassle.

I prefer the 'Twins 'We Are Detective' - a marvellous little edgy number.

Sooooo many '80s compilations have recently been released. Sadly, all but the odd song is already in my collection. Went into HMV today and they were playing Smash Hits of the 80s - a GREAT 3disc collection. Makes a change from hearing the usual dross in-store, too. :D

Have a vinyl player but haven't used it in years - don't seem to find the time. Have had same Hi-Fi since 1986 - a Pioneer with 6disc CD-player. Must dust off some records and give them a spin. 8)

Annoyed about Journey's latest release. We Brits will get only the 2disc version whereas buy it from Wal-Mart and you get 3discs. One problem - Wal-Mart refuse to do business outside of America. GAH!

Can't wait for 19 June - Journey for the first time. Woo Hoo!

Just been listening to 'The Handy Wah! Whole, Songs from the Repertwah!: The Maverick Years 2000', a compilation of Pete Wylie's career. Has a favourite of mine - Sinful. And followed that with a Fuzzbox collection - Pink Sunshine indeed! :D

Edgy?? Pah! Listen to 'We Are All Prostitues' by The Pop Group if you want edgy or 'Love Song' by The Passage.

Think you got your songs / bands the wrong way round - Surely it should be "'We Are All Prostitues" by The Passage :wink:

I've just been listening to "Greatest" in the car. "Union Of The Snake" has just finished, and the next track is "New Moon On Monday" :D
