Music on commercial radio wk 1

This is a new feature inspired by a fellow blogger, who enjoys complaining about the paucity of decent music on domestic commercial radio! This will be an occasional feature. This is a compilation of enjoyable music heard on commercial radio stations located within a 100 kilometre radius (unless otherwise specified) programmed during the preceding week. Subjective comments from readers on poor quality inclusions (and why) are more than welcome!

  1. Some choice selections there, but Roam and anything by Missy Higgins cause me to reach for the dials immediately. Heartbeat City- what station did you hear that one on?

    Some surprisingly solid selection there I must say,well done.I’m particularly fond of Heartbeat City & Whiskey In Jar,as well as Collective Soul.

    As for Black Box,I’d happily trade Ride On Time for either the heavily-sampled (& unauthorised at that-http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ride_on_Time#Music_and_lyrics ) original Love Sensation ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PfmTPcBHvRs);or the authorised Good Vibrations by Marky Mark (aka Mark Wahlberg – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-eSN8Cwit_s).

    My main disagreement is the Missy Higgins so though,terrible. 😉
