Melodic Randomiser: Isolation Radio, day forty one.

If it’s Tuesday, it must be…the couch.

Yes, the rain has returned and the Isolation Radio show has moved back indoors for the day, accompanied by the dulcet tones of the Melodic Randomiser‘s first choice.

Which is almost another great tune…

I’m sorry, I’ll read that again.

Which is “Almost”, another great tune by OMD, from their 1980 debut album, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark

Then we jump ahead 14 years, to an album from Hootie and the Blowfish called Cracked Rear View and the song “Hannah Jane”

Before fast forwarding to Lunar Lane, the 2015 album from French electro-popsters Jabberwocky and the track “Dizzy Youth”, which features Irish contemporaries Young Wonder

And that’s your lot for today, hopefully tomorrow’s selection will be from the sunnier climes of the back garden.

Stay safe, live long and prosper.



Melodic Randomiser: Isolation Radio, day thirty nine.

Hello, welcome to Sunday’s edition of the Isolation Radio show, bringing the sermon of the Melodic Randomiser into your lives for a short burst of musical worship.

The first lesson is read by MGMT; here’s the title track from their Little Dark Age album

Next, if you turn your orders of service to page two, you’ll find the gospel according to Rage Against the Machine. They are insisting that you “Wake Up”, something about which you have very little choice, with this track from their eponymous debut album

And we close today’s devotions with a chapter from the book of Big Audio Dynamite, specifically a verse called “A Party”, taken from This is Big Audio Dynamite

Ah, men. But maybe there’ll be some women in tomorrow’s selection.

Stay safe, be kind, enjoy the rest of your weekend and wake up refreshed for…well, more of the same, I guess.



Melodic Randomiser: Isolation Radio, day two.

It’s the second day of musical seclusion and the Melodic Randomiser has already given me a chance to play you one of my recent remixes; (an honest shuffle, I assure you) comprising the unlikely pairing of “Hits from the bong” by Cyprus Hill and “Pump up the Volume” by M.A.R.R.S.

Here is “Pump up the Bong”, I hope you enjoy it.

{Note: I know there are copyright issues with the YouTube link in some regions, if this affects your ability to view it, go HERE to listen or download for free}

Song two for today’s mini mixtape is one from my youth you almost certainly haven’t heard of; the title track of “Walking Into Mirrors” by the hugely unappreciated Johnny Warman. If you haven’t previously been aware of Mr Warman, I urge you to seek out his work, he has made some top tunes.

Thirdly, a fine example of electro goth rock from Danse Society and their 1983 hit “Heaven is Waiting”. Here’s a rare live video of them performing the song the year after release.

That’s it for today, join me again tomorrow for another brief glimpse into my musical history.
In the meantime, I’ll give Bill and Ted the final word…
