Yes, thank goodness for Ken Bruce, and Jeremy Vine, but they don't go as far as playing some of the favourites I've mentioned in this topic - still a step too far for the BBC.


Bob Harris is probably the only 'real' DJ left in the country unfortunately. Pity they relegated his show to the 3am graveyard slot but that's the way the corporation has been heading for a long time now...
Equipment choices:

Playstation 3 SACD, Bitzie DAC, Meridian Explorer DAC, Lautus USB cable, HD250-II, HD650

IMO the most eclectic choice of music on Radio 2 is to be found on the Desmond Carrington and Liza Tarbuck shows. Although neither could be described as DJs, the former at 90 must certainly rate as the world's oldest radio presenter; this Friday's edition will be his last. 

I remember when he was in Emergency Ward 10! Unhappy

Ahhh "Prog"  Smile

Strangely I stopped listening to Genesis years ago when I started to buy CD's and stopped buying vinyl. Then last year, when I resurrected my Thorens, Selling England was one of the first LP's to be played. WOW I'd forgotten just how brilliant this album is, especially via vinyl. Big smileBig smile

Since then I've got back into (early) Genesis, but also Yes, King Crimson, and the brilliant Moody Blues (early albums).  Luckily I have all the Genesis on original vinyl (heard bad reports on the remasters), but struggling to get the Moody Blues on vinyl (only have on CD).

Can hugely recommend seeing The Musical Box tribute band.  Incredible.  They got a standing ovation at the Hammy Odeon (or whatever its called now) back in October last year, and deservedly so.  Looking forwards to seeing them again this year.  They're doing the "black version" of Selling England, apparently.

Anyway, Prog Rules !!  Embarrassed

Listening to King Crimson's album "In The Court of The Crimson King".
 Playing through the Accession... it sounds great!

Hello, first post. I joined to borrow a phono stage, hopefully.

I love all kinds of music but Genesis were my favorite band and still love the music nearly forty years later. Trick of the tail, they knocked it out of the park with that album but love all their earlier stuff too.

Seen a couple of tributes and agree, The Musical box are truly amazing.

Welcome.

Love the Gabriel-era of Genesis when I'm in the mood. I like some of Gabriel's solo work a lot also, and his soundtrack for the Last Temptation of Christ is a big favorite of mine.
