Wake Me Up On Saturday Before You Go Go

June 25th A couple of quite notable anniversaries for music fans today. Firstly, it’s the birthday of George Michael so here’s a favourite song from his back catalogue: I also really loved his collaboration with Toby Bourke, the UK video has been removed from YouTube for some reason but I found it with foreign subtitles […]

Sweet Memories

Over to the BBC for the news of 14th Mays gone by. A few interesting (to me) birthdays today. 1973. Natalie Appleton singer, member of the band All Saints and, with her sister Nicole, one half of the band Appleton.
