Think that's what they said on the One show last night, anyway.

From what I heard, it will be one game per hour. Stopped listening to Radio 2 when they changed the stuff they played.

Still occasionally catch Ken Bruce's quiz.

Lost count of the people who've advised me to try and get on it. What puts me off, is knowing my luck, they'd hit me with loads of stuff that isn't in the stuff I've followed, and I'd wind up being an embarrassment to the human race.

Though I suppose not being able to name three Bay City Rollers top 5 hits in ten seconds, would be an achievement, not a moment of shame.

As another aside, I've just found a TV channel halfway through the digital channels called NOW 70s, that screens 70s videos all day.

How fucking cool is THAT? Some shit, but compared to now, what a classic era for music.

I found that on Sky a while back. I also found a station called Absolute 70s on DAB radio. I have to listen to it via the internet button on my radio but worth finding.

Hmm, definitely not the same designer, so maybe inspired by some artist from hundreds of years ago, i really don't know.

You are on The right track.

News of the World fits in with the answer as does Jeff Becks Beck-Ola.
