Buffet #15 – we are one

We’ve been putting on a nice spread for a year now, which is why we shared a glass of Babycham with our lovely special guests the Bet Lynch Mob (along with regular guests Jenny Jet and Elias AKA Little Spads). We had a very nice curry afterwards, too.

The thing Em and I probably struggle with most of all making our radio show is doing the maths. We don’t do maths as a rule. So having to work out how much time you’ve got left, and how long your remaining tracks are is quite beyond us, and sometimes results in us introducing a final song only to hear the first 30s seconds of it (which reminds me – Em, we still need to play that Dam Mantle record). Today was slightly different, as we introduced our last track, only to realise we had time to play another. So think of this as a secret track at the end of our mix tape.

Here’s our party playlist:

Geoff Love and his Orchestra – Theme From Star Wars
The Beatles – Birthday
Sleigh Bells – Infinity Guitars
Deerhoof – Basketball Get Your Groove Back
Lifescreen – Opting Out (Betty Boobs’ choice)
The Ruby Suns – Birthday On Mars
Turbo Fruits – Volcano (Betty Bird’s choice)
Blondie – Call me (Betty Bottom’s choice)
McFly – Party Girl
Shirley Bassey – Get The Party Started
Marnie Stern – For Ash
Electric 6 – Gay Bar
Matt Monro – The Party’s Over
Birds and Brass – Chim Chim Cheree
