Looks like the final week of the strictest lockdown restrictions is now underway, meaning some of you may have returned to work already or are doing so in the next few days.
I shall not be going back until next Monday, as I’m not confident we are over the worst of it yet and I am still concerned about a possible spike in new cases over the coming week. That’s a risk I am just not prepared to take, due to Rhonda and Audrey both having health issues which put them at higher risk of serious complications from infection.
So the Isolation Radio show will continue until at least Sunday, because the Melodic Randomiser is still packed full of top tunes, such as…
…a song by Canadian oddballs, Men Without Hats, from their 1982 Rhythm of Youth album, here’s the quirky “Ideas for Walls”
After that we have a big slab of anthemic goth rock by The Sisters of Mercy, from their epic 1985 Floodland album, this is the excellent “Dominion”
And today’s third and final offering is another incarnation of Bill Nelson, this time with his short lived new wave outfit, Red Noise. This is a song from their only album, Sound on Sound, released in ’79, the slightly manic “Art, Empire, Industry”
I would like to take this opportunity to thank any of you who have tuned in for this journey through my musical memory banks, and I hope you’ll stick with me for the last few days of audio delights if you have the time.
Keep on staying safe and being good to each other, this thing is far from over and we all need to continue to do our part.
