The Show: In ill-fitting Rupert The Bear trousers.

Video of the week goes to Geno Pacino – partly because it’s a timely, seasonal reminder to start digging out the Vince Guaraldi vinyl

Or is video of the week Hedda Mae’s homage to various other 90’s and 00’s music clips?

The Show: When Harri Met Steve

I remember hearing today’s opening song on the John Peel show back in 1980. Unfortunately I could never recall the name of the band (The Silver) or the name of the track (Do You Wanna Dance). What I thought I recalled was that the band were from Sweden (Finland actually), were very young and fell about in hysterics half way through the performance. Not even the most sophisticated 21st century search engines could provide a solution to a 40 year mystery with that scant information.

By sheer chance I came across a website that did provide the solution, buried deep in a post about ramshackle outsider art music. However the mystery continues because my browser history has been deleted and I can’t remember the website I have to thank.

And on with the show…
