Good question Lindsay. I suppose the up-tempo or rockier ones are the immediately appealing. When I first got the BOTBS/DTMA CD it was the DTMA track along with The Original Honky Tonk Night Train Blues that I liked most at first listening. I didn't have any seventies exposure to the music so I suppose that was a completely fresh, if not particularly  insightful, impression.
 
Making any number of assumptions about the target audience for a programme named Woodstock Rock it occurs to me that Rain Wheels might have the sort of sound they like. What is the frequency of the radio station? I'm not often down in Perth other than on a weekend, but we do get FM reception most of the time here.

Hi Murray,
Good to hear from you again, RTRfm is on 92.1fm and a replay of each week and previous weeks programme can be found on the internet on http://www.rtrfm.com.au/shows/woodstock. I have emailed the presenter but have yet to hear where he wants me to deliver the albums. I will post on here as soon as I know what night my track will be played. I must admit I listened to the Perth recording of Thief in the Night the other day and really enjoyed it, so maybe I go with that one.
To Gerry, I do have a copy of Winter Spring, but as I said before, I'm working in a time span and that album will be one that an interested listener will pick up themselves.

I have to agree with Gerry, An Empty Table is one of those rare songs when the Musical Gods conspire to produce a perfect performance.  The combination of lyric, music, performance and production make for a song that hits you right where the composers intend.
 
Clive's lyric:"And folding chairs, well, what they do is fold
     They do it once and they can do it twice"
 
Simple  but abosolutely wonderful, we've all been there, lost love and bittersweet memories.
 
Lindsay, you and your friends at the Radio Station should contact the good people at Hillside Records and acquire the newer recodings - including the Live in Australia set.

Why always the old stuff? What's wrong with, say, "I Have To Learn" or "Thought Of You" from Winter Spring? Much more approachable, I would have thought, for a younger audience (with all due respect to the Golden Era material.)

It has to be from 1965-74, which could cause problems with the later stuff

Hello everyone,
I now know the details of which songs will appear on the Woodstock Rock show. The tracks (yes, two) will be played next Thursday, the 26th, the show starting at 8pm Perth time or I believe 1pm London time. After much deliberation and input it has been decided that Beware of the Beautiful Stranger will be played along with ..... Rain-Wheels. These were decided by the presenter after I gave him my albums to listen to. If you can't hear the programme live, then it can be replayed at your leisure on the site I mentioned on my last input. Thank you once again everyone that added their suggestions and well done Ian Ashleigh for your perception.

Hi all,
Well, we got two tracks played, although it ended up being BOTBS and Between Us There Is Nothing plus a Doug Ashdown version of The Flowers and The Wine, we also got a very good mention of Pete and Clive and a recommendation to visit the website. I must admit though it did seem surreal to hear Pete and Hawkwind in the same programme, although maybe not, those Space Cowboys could break an ankle dancing on the moon!

Welcome back to Midnight Voices, you have been missed!!
 
Hi Lindsay
 
Thank you for your good wishes, and well done on getting the music played.  Maybe your friendly presenter will revisit Rain-Wheels on another day - I still think that the musical and lyrical imagery within that song represents PA/CJ at their best.
 
Changing tack slightly ...
 
My mp3 player threw I Have to Learn in this morning and I stopped reading the paper and listned again to every word and note within the song.  It is a magical song, magnificent and (bear with me on this) could become a modern standard.  I could imagine Michael Ball singing it - or turning back the clock 40 years or so Sinatra making it a fixture in his set the way he adopted George Harrison's Something.  We have a habit of concentratring on the early works - and rightly so but the newer songs sit very well within the cannon.
 
How can we get I Have to Learn out of the forum and into the general consciousness??

Oops, pressed wrong key, Ian I guess the best way of making it aware is to contact a station like Radio 2 and get it played, then if other people outside of the MV collective like it, it may be picked up. Other than that, you could send it to a couple of likely candidates in the same way that Sinatra had hundreds of perfect songs sent to him each week. Good luck.
