Reecey on Bolan, and the Gilster returns

Greetings, Zoneheads !
Up and running with the Shows this weekend, and here are the details.
As many musos will know, Sunday is the 30th Anniversary of the death of Marc Bolan. As members of the Zone fraternity will know, our Mr Reece was a bit of a fan. The Scotsmans show this weekend takes this into account, with each alternate track of the programme featuring the man himself. But, with a difference (naturally !).
As Mr Reece always said, it's unfortunate that Bolan was known mainly just for those reams of hit singles, when in fact, most of his music was far, far removed from that style. This is proved, on Sundays Johnny Reece Show.
Do tune in, if you can. The Bolan material in particular, will surprise you.
You'll find it at 20.00 hours (UK time) whistling around the world, via
At the same time too, on Sky 0195.
For Seagull listeners ( it's on Monday evening at 18.00, and Friday at 02.00.
That's all UK time by the way, and from Sunday evening it will also be on our Pod.
The Bolan mix is augmented by some goodies from 2007 right back to the 1920s, we'll have you know !
Gil Legine steps up to the plate too, on Saturday evening via RTI, at 21.00 hours. This show is already on our Pod, so if you want to nip along before then, it's there for your delectation.
To add to our weekend shows on RTI, remember we are also broadcast via Radio Seagull, 6 times per week, at 18.00 hours on Mon, Tue, Wed, these being repeated at 02.00 on Fri, Sat, and Sun.
Respectively, those slots are filled this week by Johnny Reece, Richard Bismarck, and Barry De Foyle.
Thank you for the questions - keep them coming !
More will be answered during this coming week.
