The Show: NOW That’s What I Call Meta

We pay our respects to a series of compilations so vast and all encompassing they actually merit their own compilation. A classic case of pop eating itself.

Besides the NOW references this week’s show is basically Miss Red, either performing or mixing. Or sometimes both at the same time.

Which, depending on your perferences, is probably better than “rain stops play.”

The Show: Happy Christmas From The Stars

neteToday’s show contained snippets from a flexi-disc that was given away with a¬†December¬†1982 edition of Smash Hits.¬†The top¬†pop stars of the day¬†(plus¬†The Piranhas‘¬†Boring Bob Grover) recorded¬†special Christmas greetings for the readers. The idea was¬†Neil Tennant’s, the news editor at the time.

To hear recollections from other writers¬†and editors¬†have a listen to The Word podcast “Remembering Smash Hits”¬†taken from one of this year’s¬†Word In Your Ear events.¬†One anecdote¬†involves heroin, Marilyn, Jimmy Saville, sea cadets, French restaurateurs and a stroppy teenager from Rochdale – all the elements you need for a true¬†Christmas tale.
