RMHQ Radio Show Ep31 @NovaRadioNE Newcastle

RMHQ Radio Show
Nova Radio NE

SUNDAY 4th December 2022

Well; there’s a thing!
Every week I take a good while preparing the show, then everything stops family wise so I can do the radio show LIVE on a Sunday evening!

This week; because of England playing a key World Cop game that clashed, I did a pre-record on the previous Wednesday, something I did this once before in September when we were on holiday.
So, I was more shocked than anyone listening on Sunday night …. hearing Robert Plant & Allison Krauss instead of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins! There’s a sentence you didn’t expect to read …. and an easy mistake to make.
For some reason; the Nova Radio Super Computer re-played the September 4th Ep 17 show instead of the real one …. but fear not; here it is in all it’s glory.

Songs get played for a variety of reasons; as usual …. I started with Screamin’ Jay Hawkins after a casual conversation a week ago when his name cropped up about a pub with a jukebox in Glasgow; and then I finally found the Wilko Johnson song that I should have played last week, but the computer had lost!
The other thing of note this programme was Chrissie McVie from Fleetwood Mac died. Serendipity played a hand here, as I was always going to play a track from Rick Berthold’s new Tribute to Peter Green, so instead of following the musical ‘sheep’ and playing Songbird; I went with It’s You I Miss from the 1960’s Fleetwood Mac incarnation.

Also hours before going in the studio it was announced that someone had bought the Bloodshot Records brand and catalogue …. any excuse to play The Waco Brothers, Kelly Hogan and Tift Merritt!

The show finishes with a song I’d lost; Steve Dagget’s Ballad of Jimmy Forsyth; a legendary Newcastle photographer in the 1050’s, 60’s and 70’s, who documented the West End around Scotswood Road, Elswick and Benwell where the Nova Radio Station is based…. so I bought another copy of the album off eBay!
