  8. Many thanks for this Big O.

    Corrections to the cover listing: Lindisfarne Track 310 should probably be ‘Newcastle Brown Ale’ (Geordie accents don’t help) and Track 312 is ‘We Can Swing Together’.

    All the best and thanks for keeping on posting new and interesting stuff.

  10. Hey Derrick, I counted 12 names there. You must have been extremely busy. By the way, do you spit or do you swallow? I guess you must have had a belly full!!

  11. For the Boomers and top 40 listeners, to note the passing of the pop artists, on the same date, both at 78 years old Helen Reddy, I am Woman and a couple other hits, and Mac Davis who had a number one and also wrote a big hit for Elvis and others.
