Newies, Oldies, Playlists, and on this day...

Ah, a fine weekend to all you Zoneheads... all ok ?
Before we commence with AZ news, I have to mention 'this day', being February 3rd, as it does seem to be a special day, in so many ways, in the history of music. So much happened on this day - too much to be logged here, but a few snippets :
On this day in 1947, Dave Davies was born, as was Melanie. Happy 60th !
On a more dodgy deals and hey let's get the lawyers in note, on this day in 1969, Allan Klein was appointed manager of The Beatles. And ramifications of that appointment still continue to this day. And will for ever !
This day in 1972, the rather splendid (so says mr Reece) Telegram Sam by T.Rex topped the charts in the UK.
On more sombre notes, it was this day in 1959 that we lost Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper, and Richie Valens.
This day in 1967, in suspicious circumstances (a phrase the newspapers love to use !) we lost Joe Meek.
So, there we have it ! Oh, there's more, but that's enough to be going on with...
On to AZ business, and on the newies front, Richard Bismarck and Johnny Reece take centre stage with their programmes, worldwide, this weekend.
Up and coming in the next fortnight - new (debut) show from Cupcake, another one from Barry De Foyle, and more from our Pixie too. Oh, and the return of Rich Phoenix. Plenty going on !
On the oldies front - I mean 'Vintage' - we continue to have programmes from times gone by, on our 'Pod 2', the url for which, you will see on the left index on this page.
Pod 1 contains many new programmes, from just about everyone !
So, to tonight and tomorrow.

Danes, Vintage, and Blubber

Hello to you all...
A quick Midweek update for you.
We have been digging in those archives again, and currently are broadcasting some 'Vintage' Shows, appearing on Pod 2 only. There are so many shows from way back, featuring many of the current AZ Personnel in days of yore in various places on various stations (UK, France, Holland, at Sea...) that we feel we should occasionally dust down those tapes and give you a few snippets.
So, Pod 2 it is - the url is on the left of this very page, as you know.
Whenever time allows - we'll replace them, in no particular order - this really is a 'hand in the box' job and what comes out, gets uploaded. So, even we don't know what's coming up next, with these Programmes.
As for new/current Programmes, this Saturday via RTI we have Richard Bismarck, and, as ever, Johnny Reece returns for his usual Sunday evening spot.
We will publish the Playlists this weekend - right here, and on our MySpace page, too.
It looks like we have another jointly hosted show coming up, now, they do not happen often because of the differing geographical locations of all involved - but the Tall Cool One himself, Gil Legine, is in the UK for a week or two, and so Mr Reece and The Gilster will no doubt co-host one of these shows, shortly.
News on that right here, when it happens.
Up and coming : newies from Barry De Foyle, Pixie, Andy Miles, and Cupcake.
In a fortnight or so, Rich Phoenix will be back too.
Blubber !
Ah, our AZ Pet has a new house.
It is pictured above. It is bigger, more roomy, and dare I say, rather more luxurious, with extra furnishings still to come - a new tree, for instance.
But, for the moment, he shares his abode with a deep sea diver, and the Loch Ness Monster.
Have a great week,
Steve Lloyd PR The Album Zone
