Well, a big milestone for the blog, but only a partial playlist for tonight's show. Miss Parker was only able to stay around until around 10 and I wasn't able to check in at all - just finished for the evening close to 12 and by the time I got the computer going David was done for the night.

Well, it's only 100 posts :-), but still a milestone!

I added a guess for the artist of Walk Away Renee - Southside Johnny as that is a song that David plays semi-regularly - I posted that track in a Featured Artists post back in May (I think) - if you have a chance, have a look for Southside Johnny in the 'labels' listing and have a listen to see if that's the track that was played or not and let me know!

Thanks,
Ralph

Hi Ralph,

Welcome back. I'll send you clips of the two songs that I couldn't identify. These two songs may have already bee identified here by Miss Parker though.

Another omitted song:

Tubes - Don't Touch Me There (I don't know how I missed that one the first time)

Marsden Planet said...

Adding the Tubes and Roger Taylor from the samples Glen sent - thanks again for the assist!

Glen said...

Ralph,

Yes, the artist of the Walk Away Renee song that David played sounds very much like Southside Johnny in a video that I found and heard.

Glen - thanks for checking that out - I updated the post to reflect your confirmation
