Was just this minute listening to Blue Nile's 'Tinsel Town In The Rain' from that very year. I remember 1984 vividly and I'd say Prince's success here was a bit more than modest, as 'When Doves Cry'...

Amazed its not on bbc4. Guess they'll show it as part of an ELO night soon. Can't believe Jeff Lynne is 66. Would never guess..he's aged well!

Unusually odd reporting by the BBC, as according to the Telegraph he also said:

Hard to believe Peter Gabriel wanted Dolly Parton to sing with him originally on 'Don't Give Up'. Can't imagine it with anyone but Kate Bush.

Enjoyed the documentary, although would have liked to...

He had a stroke a while ago, and said recently that he still hasn't fully got back his speech to normal.

Enjoyed his stints covering for Steve Wright.

If your internet is good, could you use chromecast combined with a tablet hooked up to your tv. Should get quite a few channels that way?

Be funny if Froome falls off in the first few days of the tour. Wiggins will be off at the end of the season. You can't blame Sky, as they're just going with the most logical bet. Just unfortunate in...
