Welcome to this week’s show, the 19th tune-filled episode of Where The Action Is from K107FM, and our normal wonderful mix of mod, soul, beat groups, popsike, sunshine pop, freakbeat, ye-ye and girls from the late 50s through to the early 70s.

We had three games of Connect 3 (did you get the link between the three tracks?), two Birthday tracks (for stars born on the day of broadcast), a Foreign Language track (from Italy) and Two of a Kind from The Byrds. We heard from a Memphis trio in our Death Disco spot and we turned turquoise in our Double Rubble. We did the Shimmy Shammy in the Land of 1000 Dances and Edinburgh egomaniacs The Spooks in our Under The Influence feature. We also had two Wordless Wonders, we inducted a Dundee band into the Jocknroll Hall of Fame and we heard two more great tracks from John Carter’s extensive back catalogue in our Get Carter feature. We’ve also threw in some cycling-related tracks to celebrate the Tour de France and my visit there on Saturday when I took in the start of stage 1 in Leeds and the end in Harrogate.

Welcome to another edition of Where The Action Is from K107FM.

After last week’s World Cup themed show we returned to our usual mix of mod, soul, beat groups, popsike, sunshine pop, freakbeat, ye-ye and girls from the late 50s through to the early 70s. We had three games of Connect 3 (did you get the link between the three tracks?), two Birthday tracks (for stars born on the day of broadcast), a Foreign Language track (from Germany this week) and Two of a Kind from The Shangri-las, who also fill our Death Disco slot. Keep an eye (or two) out for the Double Rubble feature. We zonked out in the Land of 1000 Dances and we welcomed TeenCanteen back to our Under The Influence spot. We also had two more Wordless Wonders, we inducted an East Coast band into our Jocknroll Hall of Fame and we dipped our hands once more into John Carter’s amazing back catalogue for our Get Carter feature. We also had our irregular Soul O’Clock feature.

That’s it for this week, see you next time when I’ll be playing many tracks co-written by Gerry Goffin to mark his death this week.

After my sojourn to Inverness I returned to host a special World Cup themed edition of Where The Action Is on K107FM.

We had our usual mix of mod, soul, beat groups, popsike, sunshine pop, freakbeat, ye-ye and girls from the late 50s through to the early 70s but all with a World cup twist. We had three games of Connect 3 (did you get the link between the three tracks?), two Birthday tracks (for stars born on the day of broadcast), a Foreign Language track (from France this week, in more ways than one) and a unique variation on our Two of a Kind spot. We recall an ex-England legend in our Death Disco selections and took in some sun in our Double Rubble feature. We pushed and kicked in the Land of 1000 Dances and we welcome Half Man Half Biscuit to our Under The Influence spot. We also had two more Wordless Wonders, we inducted an Edinburgh band into our Jocknroll Hall of Fame and we dipped our hands once more into John Carter’s amazing back catalogue for our Get Carter feature.

Tonight’s show featured requests/selections for Lawrence McCluskey, Sheila Godfrey, Phil Jordan, Eve Griffin, Sue McGookin, Lynn Elliot, Ally Gourlay, David Paul and Lauree McArdle amongst others.

Two of the three points available in our Connect 3 competition went, as seems to be the norm, to Laz, who guessed the connections of Keeprs and Balls. The first one illuded him and everyone else as no-one spotted the name sof England players.  The overall standings are currently as follows:

1st Lawrence McCluskey 18.5 points
2nd John Murray 7 points
3rd= Martyn Rollo 1 point
3rd= Ally Gourlay 1 point
5th Sheila Godfrey 0.5 point

Requests are always welcome for the show, including the features, and I’ll try and accommodate them all, although it may take a couple of weeks to slot them all in. That’s it for this week, next’s week show clashes with the England v Uruguay match so why not watch the match with the jingoistic commentary turned down and listen to some good music instead?

Here is the playlist for this week’s edition of Where The Action Is on K107FM, which was hosted by Ally Gourlay in my absence.

While I left Ally very much to his own devices he did keep to the ethos of my show for which I’m grateful with some great tracks from the late 50s through to the early 70s. He hosted three games of Connect 3 (did you get the link between the three tracks?), two Birthday tracks (for stars born on the day of broadcast), his own TV Times feature (which I may well “borrow”) and Two of a Kind from The Casuals. He gave a dog a bone in this week’s Death Disco slot and enjoyed two of his personal favourites in our Double Rubble feature. He demonstrated the hucklebuck in the Land of 1000 Dances and his Under The Influence selection came from A, B and The Sea. He also had two more Wordless Wonders, he inducted some Scottish folk legends into the Jocknroll Hall of Fame and he picked his favourite ever John Carter track in the Get Carter feature, as well as two Soul O’Clock tracks.

Only one of the three available points was on in the Connect 3 competition. Nobody spotted the fairgrounds connection to win the first point. John Murray picked up the second available point for guessing the surfing connection between three songs. However, Ally kept the other point as no-one knew that the three records were all covers from Top of the Pops albums. Nice one, Ally! The overall standings are currently as follows:

1st Lawrence McCluskey 16.5 points
2nd John Murray 8 points
3rd= Martyn Rollo 1 point
3rd= Ally Gourlay 1 point
5th Sheila Godfrey 0.5 point

A very big thank you to Ally Gourlay for keeping my seat warm and I’ll return next week with a World Cup-themed special. I promise there will be no singing footballers.

TeenCanteen - Single Launch

TeenCanteen return with a new single, You’re Still Mine/Vagabond, on their own SWALK Records on Monday 16 June 2014. Produced by FOUND’s Ziggy Campbell, the single will be available as a limited 300 copies available as a 7″ frosted clear glitter (pictured below) as well as the usual digital format. You’re Still Mine is a follow-up to their wonderful sugar-soaked, harmony-laden debut Honey.

The official launch takes place at Henry’s Cellar Bar, Edinburgh on Saturday 14 June 2014. Support comes from The Just Joans and Jenna. Tickets available for the gig from the very reasonable Brown Paper Tickets.

Amanda (guitar/vocals), Carla (keyboards/vocals), Deborah (drums/vocals) and Sita (bass/vocals) also head to the Highlands tonight to perform at the goNORTH Festival in Inverness. Catch them at Hootananny on Church Street at 11pm.

The band have also been selected to play the T Break stage at T in the Park. You can download You’re So Analog for free. It features Mr Eugene Kelly on guitar. You can also hear You’re So Analog and Honey on Radio goNORTH during the goNORTH Festival. Listen in HERE.

Also, if that wasn’t enough, they form part of the tartan invasion of the Indietracks festival when they join The Wellgreen, Withered Hand, The Just Joans and The Spook School as they head over the border to Derbyshire between 25 and 27 July.

The band also performed a three-track session last week on Radio Scotland’s The Culture Studio with Janice Forsyth. Sadly, it’s only available for one more day.

You can also catch Carla at the Parley for Power (and the power behind it …) happening at the Scottish Storytelling Centre in Edinburgh on 23 July. Tickets and details HERE.
