Carnival Weekend

Before we get to our scheduled post, let's pay tribute to Neil Armstrong with the help of Messrs Stewart, Fredericks and Goulden. Bow your heads respectfully for a few minutes, folks.

"Armstrong" - John Stewart

"Take A Giant Step" - Taj Mahal

"Walking On The Surface Of The Moon" - Wreckless Eric

On with business. It's August Bank Holiday here in the UK, which means the Notting Hill Carnival. And being a bank holiday weekend, it also means rain. If the weather is like it was yesterday they will be better off parading in boats than floats. Let's play a few sunshine carnival tunes in the hope they will keep the rain away. Some of these have been transferred from aged cassettes so the sound quality is a bit ropey, for which apologies.

"Notting Hill" - Explainer

"Don't Stop This Party" - Mighty Swallow

"Flag Woman" - Lord Kitchener

"Same Time, Same Place" - Mighty Sparrow
