After a week off Where The Action Is returns to K-Town FM with a Movie-themed special in recognition of last weekend’s Academy Awards. On today’s two-hour tinseltown-tainted extravaganza we had mod, soul, freakbeat, baroque pop, psychedelia, girl groups and all sprinkled with a little bit of Hollywood’s magic dust! We had two rounds of Connect 3 (did you get the link between the three tracks?), a French Foreign Language track and Two of a Kind. We headed off to the Death Disco and we went all film-themed with our Double Rubble tracks. We zonked to the Land of 1000 Dances, and we heard from a Creation label in our Under The Influence slot and, as ever, we had our half-time instrumental in the shape of our Wordless Wonder.
