Your roof is leaking, so you want someone who has fixed a leaking roof more than a few times to turn up, right?
Not so good in music.
Listening to Aretha’s As and Bs comp., I decided to find out what Tony Blackburn did to mark her death in August on “Sounds of the 60s.”
Answer? Precisely what you’d expect from “soul man” Tone … her three most famous songs and then nothing for 8 weeks.
However, it’s the fact that he has apparently played the same Booker T. track (“Pigmy”) on 5 … FIVE … occasions in that time that suggests he is merely dialling it in.
What’s the point?
Why don’t they get someone with a knowledge (that he clearly doesn’t have) or, frankly, just someone with enthusiasm to do it?
