Something for the weekend, sir?

It's time for the third part of the Festive Fifty that never was. This collection is for numbers 30 to 21. You may know some of these songs but as we go into the top 20, there will be more obscure and rare songs.
And just while I think about it, this is not a Podcast. Why? Well, why the chuf should I call it that? Because it's the cool way of calling a recording of more than 5 minutes? You can listen to it on anything that plays mp3s... I don't have an iP*d and am never going to be reeled in by Apple's monopoly in the mp3 player market. They are overpriced and you can play mp3s with the same sound quality on pretty much any mp3 player. Mine has 20Gb of space but no 'cool' image quality rubbish and guess what... it was loads cheaper than an iP*d and the sound quality is just as good.
Is that enough moaning for now? Righty-o. Enjoy the "iFestive Fifty"... ;P

F50 no.s 30 to 21

PS - I've just remembered about the band Gumball, led by Don Fleming. Their music seems to be unavailable but does anyone have anything by them? I would especially like the song "39 Lashes" from their Peel session of 1991. Or any of those songs. Cheers.

Hey guy, sorry I haven't been around recently, glad to see the next part of your Festive 50: the others are already in my collection for good.
In Korea, they have a J-Pod, which is an imitation of Apple's over-priced hype machine: it costs next to nothing and is almost identical.
Check TK for that Family Cat you wanted, if you haven't snaffled it somewhere else already!!

Great stuff Steve, thanks a lot. I'm very pleased to hear you have the Gumball session. Good luck with settling back into work!

P.P.S. Grandaddy made the Festive 50 in 2000 at number 50 with Crystal Lake. I'll feature this track soon, cos I like it a lot.

You know, you're right there. It was as insignificant as you can get though but I should have checked my facts before saying that. Cheers.
