The Isometric Dance Class: 19.9.90
For the first post of October, done during an unnaturally sunny day for this time of the year, I found a recording of an old Stu Allen or David Dunne show (I can't remember who) from Piccadilly Key 103 "back in the day." I can only imagine that I must have recorded this up at my mum's while waiting to go back to university for the start of my second year. Living in Wallasey meant that I had to twiddle around with the radio knobs to get reasonable reception, but normally seemed to end up doing so when it mattered. I didn't use to listen to the radio at university, preferring to play records and tapes constantly. Anyway, there was the occasional glimmer of light on Merseyside in 1990, but it came from Manchester every Sunday night. Listening to this tape now doesn't feel so much like the trip back in time it is, apart from analogue ruling the waves. There's a very eclectic approach, some of which comes off, and then again some of which doesn't. Sequencing skills are as smooth as sleight of hand and generally track selection is good. Not bad for a radio show that was broadcast between 7 and 9 I think.
I'll put another recording up next week.
