28th and 29th July 2007 : A Playlist and a Mystery

Welcome to the weekend, everyone.
Hey, I'm early this week, for a change, Gold Star for me, yes ?
Changes continue to be made, (albeit at rather a slow pace due to other working commitments), to the Studio here at AZ Towers. Another couple of weeks, and we'll have it how we want it. Almost.
This will be just in time for the return of one of our Presenters to nip back and do a Show for us - oh, exclusive news here ! - as the Punklicious Zoe will be here once again. We're all looking forward to that - more news when we know exact dates, transmission times, and the like.
On to this weekend, and it's a Swedish / Scots production, of sorts, with Pixie here with us on Saturday evening, and Johnny Reece, on Sunday.
At this point I usually publish both Playlists - but I will list just the one this time - and with good reason.
It's all explained below.
Whoever you are, and wherever you are, have a great weekend. And keep in touch !

The Johnny Reece Show
Sunday 29th July 2007
20.00 hours (UK time) and Sky 0195
On the Pod from Midnight 29th July
Well, here's the deal. It's an A to Z on AZ.
Johnny did this before, first song by an artist/group beginning with the letter A (band name, or solo artist surname) and worked right through the alphabet, in order.
Previously, listeners wrote in and said they'd rather not know the playlist in advance, as they would attempt to guess what Artists are coming up next, whilst they listen.
Impossible, surely ?
However, a couple of listeners did get 5 correct out of 26 last time (hey, we have to trust you on this) and that really was very good - we're impressed ! Some may be obvious, and some certainly not.
So, we will publish the Playlist - after the Show is aired. Good luck with your guessing !
Want to guess upfront ? Hey, just mail us... we'll give special prizes if you do well !
Thanks, as ever, for your support.
