This old town (is a seaside town)


Hats off to the eagle-eared Davy H for pipping this mystery song-scrap as the Staple Singers. And Simon for Google-doodle doing it as This Old Town... I really don't know anywhere near as much Staple Singers back catalogue as I should (read:any) so your hints, tips, avoids, gots, needs etc.. would be welcome.

This Old Town (People in this town) - The Staples Singers



On the subject of 'this town' *cringes shoulders* Piley and I have a nip-about on the theme of Seaside for this evening's Radio Podrophenia theme, Little Barrie, The Seasiders and Wilco are just a few from playlist..although Jack Hammer, has been given the 11th hour bounce in favour of Peggy Lee. Tune in from 9 for the full fat rundown.



If you're after some new summer sounds Yacht's Shangri-La (a mix of Atomic-era Blondie, Tom Tom Club and Lene Lovich) should be top of your shopping list...
