Samuel’s Musicians Of The Week

If I do this today, then again on the regular day of Sunday, and then again in the middle of next week, I will have caught up with the Musicians Of The Week awards that I have missed.

This award goes to Katrina and The Waves and the feature song is “I’m Walking On Sunshine”.

Oh!
Ohhhh yeeah
I used to think maybe you loved me, now baby I’m sure
And I just can’t wait ’til the day when you knock on my door
Now everytime I go for the mailbox, gotta hold myself down
‘Cause I just can’t wait ’til you write me you’re coming around

Now, I’m walking on sunshine, wooah
I’m walking on sunshine, woooah
I’m walking on sunshine, woooah
And don’t it feel good
Hey, alright now
And don’t it feel good
Hey yeah

I used to think maybe you loved me, now I know that it’s true
And I don’t want to spend my whole life, just a-waiting for you
Now I don’t want you back for the weekend, not back for a day
No no no
I said baby I just want you back, and I want you to stay
Woah yeah now

I’m walking on sunshine, wooah
I’m walking on sunshine, woooah
I’m walking on sunshine, woooah
And don’t it feel good
Hey, alright now
And don’t it feel good
Yeah, oh yeah now
And don’t it feel good

Walking on sunshine
Walking on sunshine

I feel alive, I feel the love, I feel the love that’s really real
I feel alive, I feel the love, I feel the love that’s really real
I’m on sunshine baby, oh
Oh yeah
I’m on sunshine baby, oh

I’m walking on sunshine wooah
I’m walking on sunshine wooah
I’m walking on sunshine wooah
And don’t it feel good
Hey alright now
And don’t it feel good
I’ll say it, I’ll say it, I’ll say it again now
And don’t it feel good

Oooh yeah now
And don’t it feel good
Now don’t it, don’t it, don’t it, don’t it, don’t it, don’t it feel good
I’ll say it, I’ll say it, I’ll say it again now
And don’t it feel good

Now don’t it, don’t it, don’t it, don’t it, don’t it
And don’t it feel good
Now tell me, tell me, tell me again now
And don’t it feel good
Oooh yeah now
And don’t it feel good
Oh Don’t it feel good, don’t it feel good
Now don’t it feel good

Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah yeah yeah
(Now don’t it feel good)
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
(Now don’t it feel good)

The conversation with Stuart Bocking from last year

Last year in April I went to Sydney for a couple days to attend John Kerr’s lunch at Liquidity Restaurant. The lunch was on the 24th of April, and I spent most of the 23rd and 24th in Sydney.

Today (and some of tomorrow) I am in Sydney to attend another one of John Kerr’s lunches, so it seems like a good time to post the audio of the conversations I had with Stuart Bocking and John Kerr on the air during my April 2007 Sydney trip.

On the 23rd of April at some time after 10pm I called Stuart Bocking (if I had the hotel invoice in front of me I could tell you the exact time) to talk about the supermarket code of practice for the scanning of barcodes where products scanned at the incorrect price are supposed to be given to the customer for free, as that was one of the topics of discussion for some reason. We also briefly discussed Stuart’s attendance at John’s lunch, and me not being able to remember which team I tipped in the Monday night NRL match. For the record it was the Rabbitohs to beat the Cowboys, which was a good tip in a round where I tipped 50% of the NRL matches correctly.

And of course Stuart was in attendance the next day:

Tomorrow I’ll post the audio of my conversation with John Kerr from the early hours of the 24th.

Incidentally, I recorded these off the radio by running an audio cable between the headphone jack of my portable radio and the microphone jack of my digital notetaker, so the quality is reminiscent of a mobile phone call. Finding a volume low enough on the radio to not overload the microphone jack was an interesting experience as it had to be practically the lowest possible volume on the radio…any lower and it was pure silence.

Clive Robertson is back amongst 2UE’s game of shuffles

Temporarily…although the rumours suggest otherwise.

Clive Robertson will be filling in for Stuart Bocking on 2UE’s evening show tonight, tomorrow and on Good Friday while Stuart fills in for John Stanley on the drive show. Stuart will not be there on Friday, and to be honest, apart from John Kerr on New Day Australia filling in for Jim Ball and Clive Robertson on evenings, that day is a bit of a mystery to me.

Also on the fill-in list this week is Glenn Wheeler, who is filling in for Tim Webster on the afternoon show.

2UE are keeping their game of shuffles alive by moving gardening (and anything else that he feels like mentioning) presenter Don Burke from the weekend afternoon show to the weekend breakfast show. Don did have a segment on the Glenn Wheeler show between 4pm and 6pm on Saturdays, and he is now going to be heard on Saturday and Sunday mornings between 6am and 8am. By the sounds of it, Don will have his own show instead of being part of the existing George and Paul breakfast show, so how George and Paul will reschedule their regular segments is anyone’s guess.

And the rumours about Clive Robertson returning to a regular shift abound. There seem to be two versions of the rumour, one is that Clive will take over the afternoon show, and the other involves Stuart moving to afternoons and Clive taking over the evening show. The common thread in these rumours is the ratings, apparently any move would hinge on another loss for 2UE’s daytime programming in next week’s ratings.

Samuel’s Footy Tips: 2008

As I mentioned the other day, I am submitting all of my tips for the year in advance. Unfortunately I haven’t had time to go through and write down my tips for the entire year yet (I’m getting there, it is nearing completion), but that hardly matters as you can work out my tips for yourself.

In order to produce tips for the entire year I have put together a preference list for the NRL and AFL. Quite simply, the team I will tip in any match is the higher team on the preference list.

As anybody who has watched my tips for a while would probably have noticed, I am a bulldogs supporter in both codes, and I tip them every week regardless of any external factors, hence the reason they are at the top of the list.

AFL
Bulldogs
Eagles
Power
Dockers
Saints
Blues
Magpies
Kangaroos
Hawks
Lions
Bombers
Tigers
Demons
Swans
Cats
Crows

NRL
Bulldogs
Titans
Panthers
Rabbitohs
Knights
Roosters
Dragons
Sharks
Storm
Eels
Cowboys
Sea Eagles
Warriors
Broncos
Raiders
Tigers
