The Show: So goodbye I’m a-leavin’

RIP Robbie Shakespeare…

Not sure if “Boops (Here To Go)” is the song he’d most want to be remembered for but it’s in today’s playlist because it’s an 80’s cut-n-paste classic here at The Joint HQ.

…RIP Steve Bronski…

We managed to sneak in part of the 12″ version of “Smalltown Boy” to pay our respects. To fully appreciate the continuing relevance of that song we recommend this recent BBC Soul Music podcast.

… and RIP Mike Nesmith

This news came in too late for us to celebrate his life on the show but he was our favourite Monkee, wrote one of our all time favourite tunes * and we happen to be part way through his autobiography.

And on with the show…
