22 April, 2022
🎵 I don’t care if Monday’s blue
Tuesday’s grey and Wednesday too
Thursday, one day til the New Cue,
Reccie Friday, I’m in love! 🎵
Wow, these TNC jingles are adding up, should probably do an album soon. Anyhow, hello, welcome, greetings and please don’t look at me like that, welcome to Reccie Friday. As Jesus probably said, Good Friday is good but Reccie Friday is better.
Today we’ve got our usual bumper selection of picks from the TNC crew of Ted, Niall and Chris and yes, it is a total accident that TNC also stands for our first names. It’s an extra exciting day as tonight we’ve got our first TNC live shindig, with Lush and Piroshka’s Miki Berenyi as the star guest at a Story Behind The Songs event at the Social in London. Miki will be partaking in “dirty gossip” (her words) and playing some songs too. It sold out last week but because we’re ledges we’ve held back ten tickets to sell on the door. Get down early if you want to be in with a chance of getting in!
Enjoy the edition, see you on Monday, and before we forget here’s a playlist to go with today’s picks:
Ted, Niall and Chris
