Re: Friday Night Is Music Night on BBC4 TV
Well after a good night last week - what a treat seeing a flash of Stone The Crows, just a reminder it's Garham Parker & The Rumour and a timely re-showing of Oil City Confidential for tonight. Details above.
Next Friday, March 22nd; bit of a mixture (nearly said mess), BBC closing Television Centre, so music on BBC3 having to schedule round it.
19:30 – 20:30 Madness Live: Goodbye Television Centre
The nutty boys perform One Step Beyond, Baggy Trousers, Our House and many more classics.
20:30 – 22:35 Goodbye Television Centre
