2/4/2012 ‘Love 100’ tracklist

The Kitchen Sink’s first programme for Radio R was recorded using a mono mic in Miss a.k.a’s kitchen in October 2008. Somehow, three and a half years later, this Monday the mini-milestone of a hundredth show was reached. No fanfare, no fireworks, no candles, no cake, no jumping in the fountain on Brno’s main square wearing little more than a smile, and possibly very few listeners, but those who did click in, heard the following tracks:

1)BUZZCOCKS – EVER FALLEN IN LOVE? /from ‘Love Bites’/ UA 1978                                                                                          More info: http://www.buzzcocks.com/site/index.html

12)SWANS – LOVE WILL SAVE YOU /from ‘White Light From The Mouth Of Infinity’/ Young God Records 1991        More info: http://swans.pair.com/

A fairly diverse collection, including a few classics I’d played on previous shows but couldn’t resist including again. More feedback than romance perhaps, but to anyone who has checked out the programme before, this probably didn’t come as a surprise! Hopefully the Ella hit the spot for those looking for more traditional lovesongs….

Thanks are due this time to Stuart Mills for the Gerda: Blank – help much-appreciated! And thanks to anyone who listened and- to you for checking this out!

Til next time, Shiny
