Should the Music Machine Have a Different Name?

Hi everyone

I hope you can join me, Brian Hartgen, on Saturday at 7 PM in the UK, 2 PM on the East Coast of America, for 2 hours of fantastic music, and a little learning into the bargain.

In hour 1, I have music from the 80's back to the 40's and 50's this week.

In "The Vinyl Countdown", playing a song from my record collection, we have a nice scratchy song from 1967. It's a Northern Soul classic but did not perform too well on the singles chart. It's a great one.

In "Not Now, I'm Listening", we hear a song about friendship. It's a real rave from the grave.

Hi everyone

The weekend is approaching fast, and for those of us living in the UK, it's a three-day weekend! So do join me for the Music Machine on Saturday, 7 PM UK time, 2 PM US Eastern.

In hour 1, there's a wide range of music spanning the decades, including our feature "The Vinyl Countdown", a song played straight from my record collection. This time, it's a classic hit from 1983!

Where Were You in 73?

Hi everyone

On Sunday at 5 PM UK time, 12 PM US Eastern, I'll be along with Our Time, the show where we relive the golden days of the 60's and 70's particularly.

As well as playing some top tunes from those decades, I will share with you historical musical events from the period. Together, we'll also relive the highlights of the chart from this week in 1973, and hear extracts from the news events, TV adverts and movies from the year. Do you have favourite songs from 73? Do let me know.

The Music Machine, When We Were Young.

Hi everyone

I hope you will be able to join me, Brian Hartgen, on Saturday at 7 PM UK time, 2 PM Eastern, for the Music Machine!

In hour 1, it's our usual box of delights where anything goes. But I do have the regular features for you:
"The Vinyl Countdown", where I play a song straight from my record collection. This time, we have a hit which entered the charts in March of 1969.
In "Not Now, I'm Listening", where we listen to the words of a song more carefully than usual, we hear about someone who is desperate to be at the top of the charts.

The Music Machine Says, Bop-shu-waddy.

Hi everyone

Another edition of the Music Machine comes your way tomorrow at 7 PM UK time, 2 PM Eastern.

In hour 1 we have the usual features, and your requests if you care to send them in for any song you would like!

We'll have "the Vinyl Countdown", playing a song direct from my record collection. This week, we go back to May of 1967.

"Not Now, I'm Listening", will also be part of the show, where we listen to the lyrics of the song more carefully than usual.

Starting in September, it's the Zone with Anne Cosgrove!

We're always pleased to bring new personalities to Team-FM. Starting in September each Saturday, Anne Cosgrove will present the Zone, a weekly two-hour show you will not want to miss.

Hi everyone

I hope you can be with me on Sunday at 5 PM UK time, 12 PM Eastern, for Our Time, where we go back to the golden days of the 60's and 70's.

Hour 1 is very much dominated by the 60's this week. A good number of significant musical events which took place on 7 August happened in the 60's. I'll be talking about those, and reliving the memories of 1964: the music, memories, news events and the excellent movies.

The Music Machine Says, The Ayes Have It!

Hi everyone

Sexy, angel, beautiful, dreamy, and in many colours. I'm talking here about eyes.

Apart from the word love, (which is the most common term used in a pop song title), the word eyes is definitely right up there. So which songs can you think of with the word Eyes in the title? I'll also allow the words "look" and "see" in this show.
