Best Radio Station of the Week

Flower Power Oldies


http://www.flowerpoweroldies.co.cc/ Back to Back music from the fifties sixties seventies and 80s!  It sounds as if it may be a German station but there are no announcements, jingles sound like the early BBC Radio 1 jingles streaming at 128kbps – excellent backdrop to the day.

Best Television of the Week


71 degrees North

The celebrities carry on in sub zero temperatures.  This time they had to climb a peak, and sleep in a tent which was suspended from a rock face.  Then they had to scale across a rope to collect a flag on the other side of the two peaks!

Merlin

Fantastic episode in which Merlin lets a goblin escape 
http://www.bbc.co.uk/merlin/#/pictures/series_3/s03e03/
the goblin jumps into Gaius’s body and creates mischief.  I was rocking with laughter when he sold potions to people for gold coins and they all had flatulence!  The King lost his hair as well, and Arthure grew donkey ears.  This programme is a gem – some of the special effects and animation is rather comical. Great entertainment though  

Album of the week



Party Megamix 50s and 60s  – I spotted this in our local Lidl store at £2.99 and saw that it had Stars on 45, Jive Bunny amongst the mixes on it.  The second CD has some great original rock and roll with Elvis Presley etc on it. The second CD has some short DJ announcements.   If you have not realised to date, I am a lover of naff and novelty tunes as well as mainstream pop, reggae, rock etc.  This falls into the novelty/naff bag.  The second CD is a unique collection of 50s rock and roll.

 A review from an Amazon Customer who bought the first CD separately

Although most of the megamixes featured on this album have appeared on other compilations several times before, this is most definitely one of the best party albums of recent years.
Most of the mixes used appear courtesy of the people behind the hugely successful “Stars On 45” series from the 1980s, and there’s a couple of contributions from the original party animal ‘himself’, “Jive Bunny”. Still, all the medleys here have been either remixed or remastered to give “Party Megamix” a whole new sound.
spookily like the ‘King’ himself.
Of course, the people behind this album have used Jive Bunny’s “Swing The Mood” as the main selling point (and why not?) as the ‘Bunny’ was still relatively popular when this CD was originally released. But the quality of all the tracks featured is second-to-none.
This is an album I’d definitely recommend others to buy.
Jon.

The album weighs in at £2.99 if you can find it in Lidls.  £4.99 on amazon, and £3.74 used on Amazon.

Best of the week

The gaps in between the rain which seems to have been around for some time now.

Finding out the reason why my computer was connecting to the Internet was not a hardware or virus problem.  Loose ethernet cables – which need replacing, so have ordered some more, and wiggle the wires when the Internet drops off in the meantime.

Worst of the week/Gripe of the week


Not being able to push a plastic wine cork back into the bottle to save some after a meal.  It needed shaving down with a knife to fit.  

The silly cap on the top of a Hellmans Mayonnaise which was difficult to open.
