heard on the wire

Day 7 — a song that reminds me of a certain event

An easy choice, the first song played at our wedding.

It’s utter cheese and totally disco, but for all that it’s a half decent record — all eight and a half minutes of it ripped from the 12-inch vinyl that The Becster had shipped to me from the US, via Memphis, Tennessee.

    Hi Simon,
    I can’t seem to play these songs. Am I doing something wrong? Cheers, Bill.

      What computer and web browser are you using? It will take a moment or two for the song to load, depending on the speed of your net connection. What do you see in the black bar?
