Currently listening to Alan Jones, a popular, though controversial radio commentator.
Almost forgot that his theme song is Gloria.
He plays only a few seconds before and after the show, but it's good publicity considering hundreds of thousands (I'd guess) listen to his 'rants' each day.

The music video for 'Gloria' is about to play on 'rage' at about 9.45am.
First time I have EVER seen Laura on TV! (... I think)

Great work George. I've been meaning to ask Q92 for a different Laura song other than Self Control, but have been very busy with work and other commitments. I'll try to shoot them an e-mail request as they have this weekday radio program called the Q's 80's/90's nooner. And by the way...

On Thursday April 21, 2011 at 9:29am, Montreal's Q92 (92.5 CFQR) played Self Control

On Tuesday April 26, 2011 at 8:49am, Montreal's Q92 (92.5 CFQR) played Self Control

On Thursday April 28, 2011 at 5:46pm, Montreal's Q92 (92.5 CFQR) played Self Control

Now THAT's more like it. Mind you, I'd prefer they play a wider selection of Laura's music

Does she realize
I awake every morning
With her strength by my side

This world keeps on spinning
Only she stills my heart
She's my inspiration
She's my northern star
I don't count my possession
All I call mine I will give her completely
To the end of all time

I am not a hero
I am not an angel
I am just a man

Remember Kim Wilde ('Kids In America', 'You Keep Me Hangin' On')?
Well, she does a radio show in the UK (magic fm, 105.4, which I listen to a few days after broadcast on her website) where she takes requests and people write to her about memories they associate with a particular song.
I requested 'Self Control' and it got played!
Here's what she said:
...And up next we have one from George, and he's from Australia... Ooh, I'd better not mention the cricket then *laugh*... Laura Branigan's 'Self Control' is the song he wants to hear, he says that when he wasn't 'listening to your music, Kim'... As he put, 'I was rocking out to this awesome song whenever and wherever I could... Kim Wilde and Laura Branigan... My two favourite singers... You two rock!..'
Strike a light George (Kim said), you rock too *laugh and fade to song*

AWESOME!!! It's not a dream, that actually happened, THE Kim Wilde!
:text-thankyoublue: Kim!

Wow, that is cool George. Once I get around to putting a request in and it plays, I'll be sure to post.

And now.......

On Monday May 2 at 12:03pm, Montreal's Q92 played what else but Self Control.

On Wednesday May 4 at 10:54am, Montreal's Q92 played.... wait for it.... you can cut the tension with a knife :chores-chopwood: .........Self Control.

Here's one that's not really LB related, but anyway.
In Geography, we're learning about Australia's international aid links, and we were watching a really old (1986) World Vision Australia TV special, which was hosted by two people, one of them Rowena Wallace, who played Evelyn in LB's movie 'Backstage'.
I don't even know why I'm posting this :confusion-scratchheadblue: , but I was just surprised to see her, and I need to make more posts around here (So do you...)
Anyway...
