Spiffy’s Birthday Special Show – 08/07/2020

Yesterday was my 52nd birthday in Real Life, so I decided to go find out what was the UK No.1 single for this week in each year since I was born. πŸ™‚

Some gems in there, plus a few surprises. Also, a lot of ‘WTF?’ songs, which I decided not to play. Though I might throw those into a future show… πŸ˜‰

Truth be told, some of the more recent entries served to remind me how out-of-touch I am with current ‘pop’ music. Then again, I’d rather listen to (and purchase) stuff that speaks to me, and not follow the crowd. πŸ™‚

Also, I’m late posting this because I forgot to do this on Monday. Bite me, I’m allowed senior moments! πŸ˜›

Anyways, here’s Sunday’s show recording plus tracklisting. Unfortunately, one song decided that it didn’t want to play, so the show is a little shorter than normal. Theme was chill-out. I hope you enjoy! πŸ™‚
