Musings on modern life, the 70's – with music.

Sunday Almanac – May Bank Holiday 29th 2016

We normally post playlists the day after an Almanac. 48 hours recovery this time. Normally bank holiday Almanacs are fun but perhaps a little less.. attended. Especially sunny ones. Dunno what happened this time, that was Extraordinary. Chris & I would like to blame our guest DJ Sallie who effortlessly shamed us both [a little] but mainly we’d just like to thank everyone who came, danced, tuaca’d, danced some more & made it our best Almanac yet? Yes, our 29th- a real benchmark.
