Reelin' in the Years: The Soundtrack of a Northern Life
1 journaler for this copy...
When Mark Radcliffe was born in 1958, Britain was trying to find it's own version of the dangerously sexy Elvis...we gave the world Cliff Richard but by the time Mark was old enough to recognise pop songs on the radio, the UK was exploding into the world's most dynamic place to be a young music fan.
In this eagerly awaited follow-up to his bestseller, Thank You For the Days, Mark takes a record from each year of his life, using the song as a starting point from which to pull together a wonderfully entertaining catalogue of personal memories. As one would expect from this unique and popular broadcaster, the tunes he lists are not the usual suspects, Whether Mark is talking about the excitement of drumming along to Canned Heat in his bedroom aged twelve, or the irony of watching Bob Marley in a freezing Deeside Leisure Centre in 1980, he brings forth a diverse collision of experiences uniquely defined by the fashions and culture of the time.
