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.
Richard Bismarck is here for us tonight, via, and on Sky 0195, at 21.00 hours, UK time.
Tomorrow, Sunday, at 20.00, on the same frequencies, it's Johnny Reece.
