KSHE Klassics, July 2, 2017

Quotation du jour ~ Terry Pratchett: "It's not worth doing something unless you are doing something that someone, somewhere, would much rather you weren't doing."

Happy 4th of July to my American reader.

It's the “Four On The Fourth” weekend on KSHE, their annual Independence Day feature: listeners submit four songs that they'd like to hear played, and, every hour they feature a set.

I wasn't especially looking forward to it, though, as, last year, some of the selections were wildly inappropriate. Turns out i was worried for nothing, though. All the songs fit in seamlessly with the theme of the Klassics Show. In fact the only time you knew it was “Four On The Fourth” was when we heard four songs in a row by Mama's Pride, and i'm sure as shootin' not going to complain about that, especially as the listener, Jim Risk, chose four of my favourite songs of theirs! (“Blue Mist,” incidentally, was voted the #1 KSHE Klassic song of all-time, ever, in a poll a few years back.)

And here's the host of the show, John Ulett himself. I met him last year and he's as nice a man as he seems to be on the radio :-)
