How do you sort your vinyl and cd’s?

Alan Esdaile… Believe it or not I used to sort the records for the disco’s in label order, with the chart and new releases in separate boxes.  The cd’s are now in an A-Z order with new ones on top. Then the problem is does Jeff Buckley go under J or B or do most people sort under sections, like blues, folk, rock etc?

Peter Fairless… Alphabetically, by band or artist surname. Oldies the same but divided by decade.

Chris Sambrook… CD’s are all over the place but roughly know where i can find them. Records are in alpha order like Deep Purple or Man. Funny thing is Bach was under some B with some of my Blues CD’s, so i must have thought Blind Lemon Bach, amazing Harp player.

Tony Davis… I stick them on a shelf and hope that I can remember where I put them. Seems to be getting more difficult as I get older. I know I’ve got a best of CD by the band Live but I can’t find it anywhere!!!!!

What are you favourite John Wayne movies?

Janet Rennie… True grit

John Coleman… 7 brothers

Nigel Sherwood… The Alamo

Will Cornell… I’d be a traitor to the state I live in if I didn’t say The Alamo, but I also have to nod to The Searchers and he saved his best for last, The Shootist.

Pauline Richards… True grit or stage coach

Gerry Fortsch… I liked him until I found out he was a right wing homophobe

Lyn Humphrey… The Comancheros

Mark Gilham… Never liked him. Period.

Nigel Ford… Loved so many of his westerns as a kid but later, McQ, with the car chases in that Hornet Muscle car.

John Noakes dies

Lyn Humphrey… Blue Peter legend! Such a shame he’s gone. I had several conversations with him in ’72 when our family dog was on the prog. John Noakes was as affable off-screen as on, especially considering I had to tell him at the last moment that he’d got his information wrong! A very pleasant man.

Chris Sambrook… Get down Shep. The man climbed Nelson/s column for Blue Peter. Sorry he has gone and the elephant wot did a whoopsie, glad he saw the funny side on live Children’s TV. Them were the days. Blueeeee Peter Badge.

Public Service Broadcasting – De La Warr Pavilion Bexhill 25th October 2017


After two years up in the stratosphere with the hugely successful ‘The Race For Space’, Public Service Broadcasting are returning to earth. The band’s first release through independent label Play It Again Sam, Every Valley examines the history of coal mining in South Wales. It is a record about community and what happens to an area when its lifeblood is ripped from it and as much as anything, it is a metaphor for a much larger, global and social malaise. Released on the 7th of July, Every Valley is a story of dignity and social responsibility and it rails against apathy. In transposing the story of the South Wales miners into the 21st Century of ‘fake news’, populist politics and a total disregard for the voiceless, Every Valley is a resounding call to arms.
