Why a Chumbawamba cover?

BBC Radio 1 considered the original version of the song “too pop” to receive airplay, so a second version of the song was recorded and released by former Eurovision Song Contest entrants and fellow West Yorkshire band Black Lace.

My daughter just told me about his passing and I meant to come and post it… but got distracted… RIP Ian!

I’m glad he was willing and able to cameo in one of the recent specials, which earned him a Guinness world record (longest gap between TV appearances at 57 years 120 days!)

Hopefully one of the next few episodes includes an in memoriam screen for him.

This is a big deal in Detroit but she was also know nationally.

I can’t remember a time when Doris Biscoe wasn’t on the air.

Biscoe had stints in radio in Maryland and led a public affairs show in D.C. before relocating to the Motor City. She began her career at 7 Action News in 1973 as a night reporter, eventually moving from reporting to anchoring the evening news at 6 p.m.

Besides her work in journalism, Biscoe hosted “Learn to Read,” a weekly literacy program at the station that was aimed at children. She had a brush with movies when she played a newscaster in 1987’s “The Rosary Murders” starring Donald Sutherland, which was filmed in the Motor City.
