Abba - Sounds of the 20th Century - Jane Reynolds' weekly blog

Sounds of the 20th Century

This show is SO good it’s getting its own post this week. I listened to 1976 while I was at work ironing on Wednesday and was literally overwhelmed at hearing Elton John & Kiki Dee’s Don’t go breaking my heart and Joan Armatrading’s Love and Affection. Tears of happiness/regret and nostalgia rolled down my cheeks […]

TV Times – 18th September 2011

TV Times – 11th September 2011

TV Times – 4th September 2011
