Frontier Editor's Dance Party - August 4, 2006

Richard's words are best deferred to tonight:

"The reason Rory Gallagher is by turns spoken of in terms of hushed reverence or sadly not even known of is because he never glorified drugs; never caused a drive-by shooting; never spawned a clothing fashion any more offensive than a plaid shirt and plimsols; never attacked anyone at an airport and I only once ever heard him swear (and even that was debatable). He gave out nothing more or less than pure enjoyment. You didn't go to a Rory show to make a political statement or to navel gaze; you went to tap your feet and clap your hands. And anyone who thinks he was Liam and Noel's dad deserves a contemptuous slap."

Without further ado, Rory Gallagher.

And to round off tonight's show, a smattering of British pop from across the decades:

Next week: Something odd, I'm sure.

I love music...all types. The music I listen to depends on my mood at the time.

I hope you don't think I was ignoring you, I wasn't here when you posted those and I'm just playing catch-up. Nice choices.

Can't quite imagine Keith Relf instead of Percy Plant though.
