Thanks for all my birthday wishes by the way. Yes, I was 21 and a bit between this and the last show... actually I was 21 and a lot... but who's counting? It's a great show today, even if I say so myself... actually I always say that... but it's true! We have so many great tunes to squeeze in, INCLUDING SOME Northern Soul, so let's start right away
