...And Don't the Kids Just Love It! Show tracks for Sat. July 28/12

With the Olympics in full swing now, we celebrate the London Olympics Indie style!
Tonight, a themed show playing tracks to do with the Olympics and London.
I found I had to be very literal because the amount of tracks would have been overwhelming. So I decided to concentrate on tracks that reference the Olympics and places in London in the song title. Still ended up with a wide varying selection.
Hope you enjoyed the show.

  1. heard some of it, great stuff! is your show always 100% british or do you sometimes throw in some canadian/american etc?

    1. Glad you liked it, it was a blast putting together.
      The Canuck stuff has been switched out for Soul. But I wasn't able to get too much of that in tonight because of the theme. It's almost exclusively Brit content (except for maybe the odd cover song).
