Playlist 30 March

Mickey Bradley | 09:58 UK time, Friday, 30 March 2012

Dave Wakeling from The Beat now lives in California, where he is Dave Wakeling from The English Beat. He's been there a long time, so it's just as well that he resembles a younger Robert Redford - he fits in well. Will  he be going to see Madness when they appear in the Coachella festival ? I don't know, but I'd like to thing he would. I enclose a viewing of Dave on a US station showing great patience talking about Save It For Later , the Beat's finest moment. Learn more about the mysteries of the open tuning and marvel at the good taste of Pete Townshend. Also tonight, The Slits sans Dennis Bovell, showing that while the great man deserves his production credit, he had great material to work with.

    Great show tonight, particularly enjoyed that old Feelgood classic! Attended the Mick Jones gig at the Spring & Airbrake on Sat. night where he was ably supported by Pete Wylie and The Farm. Superb show!! Look forward to hearing you spin the odd Strummer tune. Keep 'er lit!
