Favoriting May 11, 2020: LoriHajiTura #046 - Magpies: A Personal Journey


I'm doing something a little bit off the beaten track on today's LoriHajiTura with DJ GeorgyGirl and giving you a selection of some of the cornerstone records of my formative years.

Featuring artists like Johnny Mathis, Wings, 10cc, Shirley Bassey, Scott English, Jack Jones, Paul Williams and many more.

@5:25 Linda Lee: hi Linda Lee, quite OK, even if this self isolation starts to get a bit boring at times - keeping in mind I am someone who does not mind spending their time in their own company. Then again, I am covered as in having a roof over my head and enough money at the moment to get food&other essentials delivered to my door. How are things over there?

I don't blame you Georgy, be safe! I do the grocery shopping from home- it is very challenging getting a pick-up or delivery time. Usually I have to on the grocery store website at midnight to get a timeslot. It is more stressful than getting concert tickets! I can't go into grocery stores, because I live with my elderly mom who is high risk, so I can't risk bringing anything home to her!

thanks to the silly musicians union rules the BBC TV music performances from 1966 to dunnowhen (late 70s?) are, a few promo videos aside, either live (to some extent) or unique recordings. Plenty of treasures there, as well as the radio sessions (also thanks to the musicians union's "needle time" restrictions for the radio from early 60s)

I can't believe the contemporary attitudes some had about Donovan, in the vein of "compared to Dylan he is a teenybopper".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm
DJ GeorgyGirl:

During my parents VERY long engagement, my mother dumped my father (a five year engagement ..he was dragging his heels) and she briefly dated Donovan.
Fast forward to the early 70s and every time my parents had an argument. my mother would put a Donovan record on VERY LOUD and just glare at my father ;-)
