Will always be DS Carter in the Shabby household. He’s up there now, getting into the back seat of a Mk.3 Cortina with John Thaw in the front.

Fred Ward - underrated actor - superb in The Right Stuff and Tremors is always fun to watch.

Former Tubes singer Re Styles died at the age of 72 on Apr. 17,
Born Shirley Macleod in the Netherlands in 1950, she was a model who’d appeared in Playboy and Penthouse by the time she met Tubes drummer Prairie Prince in the mid ‘70s. The pair developed a relationship and Styles became the band’s costume designer before becoming part of the stage act then taking on vocal duties.
She’s probably best known for performing the female lead in the hit “Prime Time” from 1979 album Remote Control, produced by Todd Rundgren.
A lady who put the capital R into Raunchy.
“Primetime” (UK no.34) is a bit poppy but “Don’t Touch me there” is hilarious and a real rock track.

Not a fan of Chariots of Fire but only because it used to get played to death for anything and everything. Much prefer Blade Runner but I think my favourite would be the music from The Bounty

I rather like the theme to "1492, The Conquest of Paradise". That's the music that was used for one of the aerobatic teams of Yakovlevs and was generally thought to be "Russian music". That and the end theme from Blade Runner are on my favourite playlist. But I always appreciated Vangelis' work generally; he will be missed.

Odyssey is a fine album. From that, I've got 1492, Chariots & I'll Find My Way Home on my current playlist.
