Some of the ideas Jim Free and I come up with every week during our weekend theme meeting are just, well, stupid. But it's fun anyway.

This week, during constant food and drink breaks which made the meeting far too long, we struggled with deciding on a theme. Then an idea came to us as if the rock-n-roll gods descended from the concert in the sky and said, "How about playing the A and B side of some rock hits that had a B side that didn't suck?"

Jim and I looked at each other, high-fived it, and together exclaimed - "done." If you could only see the weirdness that goes on during these meetings. So there you go - hourly double-shots of songs from the 45 record era, where we will play the A side which was the hit side of course, followed by the lesser but still very good B side. Whew, another weekend theme in the bag.

Take us wherever you go this weekend. You can hear us on your radio at 99.1 FM, online at, on your mobile phone with the new Whale App – search for 99.1 The Whale, and also as 99.1 The Whale on radioPup!
