OK normally if I start the blog with the playlist it's because there's a link. Those of you that heard today's show will know the problems I had with the computer keyboard. No return button and the z,x,c,v and m didn't work. Try searching The Vaccines with no v or c. And as for Lady Punka's request for The Clash - Jimmy Jazz!!! No c, m or z! No chance. Anyway, I email myself the playlist to copy and paste on here. This is how it came out:

Quite fetching I think but I shall try and rectify it for the end of the blog.
TMS is on and the Aussies are doing well. Strange days indeed.
I'm back on the radio this evening, sitting in for JJ on The First 45, 6pm - 8pm. Hopefully the keyboard will be fixed. All new music tonight is the plan. I play a fair bit of new music but two hour's worth? Saying that I've a stack of new music emails to wade through. Could be handy.
Tomorrow sees the start of the football season and the first Tom Harking of the season. I love Rovers. Have done for 35 years but some Rovers' fans just stagger me. Constant moaning through the pre season about lack of signings. Because I'm sure Rovers really didn't try to sign anyone just to annoy the fans!
And the latest is the Louis Tomlinson affair. Rovers have signed up the One Direction chap (check me out being polite about One Direction) to play in a reserve game all to raise money for Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice. It's a great cause, will raise a small fortune and let's be honest great PR for Rovers. OK some media outlets didn't mention the charity aspect and hinted that he would be playing first team football. Heaven forbid the media tell the full story. But did any Rovers fans really read these reports and think we'd signed him on properly? Or did it not occur to them that the story needed some more investigating. Words like embarrassment and laughing stock have been flying about. The only embarrassing aspect for me has been the Rovers' fans ranting about it. Let other teams' fans take the p**s if they wish. I personally I'm quite proud of my club for this. Shame on Rovers for trying to do something worthwhile!
Still, it's always been a football fan thing to moan. Just feels like Rovers are worse than others at times, Last week at Bradford, first minute of the game, Richie Wellens back in a Rovers shirt which I'm rather delighted about. He goes in for a crunching tackle. Beautiful. One lone voice from behind me, 'Earn your place Wellens!' I don't even know what that meant!
There's loads more like that but I'll shut up. Working tomorrow night as a Rammstein tribute band take the stage at The Leopard. I'm way out of my comfort zone on that one!
Anyway, I have to investigate new music and fix this playlist.
