Finally, it's here. I'm back in Glasgow and I just did my first radio show. It's called Glasgow Green, and in this week's cover picture you can see what the Glasgow Green looked like in 1955. That's when someone from the Partick Camera Club took this fine photograph. The show went rather well, considering it was my first. I did mess up once, but one mistake per show is almost obligatory. If there's one thing I've learned from broadcasting student radio, that is it. Here is the playlist:

The Fairways – The Rain Fell Down
The Mayfields – Feels Like Yesterday
Days – Downhill
Brighter – Nothing At All
The Submarines – Take Me Away
13th Floor Elevators – Splash 1 (Now I'm Home)
The Inspirations – Touch Me, Hold Me, Kiss Me
Biff, Bang, Pow! – There Must Be a Better Life
The King of Luxembourg – Flirt Bliss Love Kiss
The Orchids – Another Saturday Night
Pipas – Windswept Room
Love Parade – Dave Clark 5
The Hit Parade – You Didn't Love Me Then
Sweet William - Lovely Norman
Postal Blue – Maybe I'm Dreaming
Felt – Dismantled King Is Off the Throne

The ones in italics are the week's Swedish and Northern Soul tracks respectively. Listen to the show through the link below! We started a bit early and finished a bit early, so it starts in the middle of the first song. I'll try to be more exact next time. We even had time for an extra track towards the end, which will remain secret for now! Please let me know what you think about the program, and hopefully next week will be even better.
