This is one of the few shows where I catch a groove and ride it all the way to the end. One of the advantages of keeping my mouth shut, I suppose.

What groove is that, you ask? One of the widescreen variety. These are big songs, ones that build until they explode. And, what should come to the surprise of no one, the show is entirely UK acts, with one group of Aussies.

And we have a Popdose premiere! Simple Minds have a new album, Walk Between Worlds, coming out February 2, and I play a song from the album here. Kind of amazing how revitalized the band has been of late.

Artists making their Dizzy Heights debut this week: Dave Edmunds, Clearlake, Codeine Velvet Club, Coldplay, The Soundtrack of Our Lives and, inexplicably, Doves. How on earth did that take over a year to happen?

Thank you, as always, for listening.
