I wasn’t awake to hear this one, but according to onlineradiobox.com, at 1:30am this morning, WSFM played the 12 inch mix of Nik Kershaw’s “I Won’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me” as part of their Saturday night “Pure Gold Party”.
I wish they played more of these gems in their daytime playlists.
Ronnie James Dio - Love is All (Butterfly Ball) on Cruise1323’s Living in the 70s, one rarely heard on commercial radio. ABC TV used to play the video clip as filler in between programmes (mainly between 5pm and 7pm) in the late 1970s.
On Coles Radio this afternoon surprisingly. I actually don’t think I have ever heard this version on radio before, mainly only hear the Big Mountain version and occasionally the Peter Frampton original. I’ve always thought of this one as being quite a good cover!
As for the original version by Peter Frampton, you hardly hear that on any of the Sydney or Melbourne commercial FM stations these days, as WS & Gold now play the Big Mountain cover instead. In fact, the most likely commercial FM station that you would hear the Peter Frampton version is on Triple M.
