Here’s the playlist for this week’s edition of Where The Action Is on Leith FM 98.8 and on www.leithfm.co.uk.
It was a film-themed special, to celebrate the Academy Awards, but sprinkled with our usual seasoning of mod, soul, girl groups and less well-known tunes from the late 50s through to the early 70s. There was also our usual features, albeit with a movie-related twist; the Birthday track, Half-Time Instrumental, Foreign Language, Death Disco, Under the Influence and Two of a Kind.

Requests are welcome for the show, including the weekly features, and I’ll try and accommodate them all, although it may take a couple of weeks to slot them all in because the shows are planned and put together in advance.
Next week it’s back to normal with all the usual features, requests and some crackin’ tunes.
That’s it for this week. Until next time, it’s good night and good health.
