Quite liked that Ooberman single at the time - it was playlisted on GLR, to which I'd pretty much defected by now. They were also playing the Beasties, Pavement and SFA singles - probably the only other cuts in that chart with which I'd especially bother - so, no harm done.
I can remember trying to do the same in 1992, at my job (also in Holborn, bizarrely - well, Chancery Lane), but struggling to maintain reception. Gary Crowley was on one morning: the only tracks I can recall hearing were Connected by Stereo MCs and Visions of You by Jah Wobble's Invaders of the Heart. I'm sure he played more interesting stuff, but I couldn't keep it tuned. His Sunday show on GLR was usually pretty decent at the time.camdwntownjohn wrote:The first XFM RSL (in Camden and Islington only), I was still living in South London, but tried to listen to it in my earphones at work in Holborn. One weekend I went to Islington and listened to the whole chart show with Steve Lamacq in a park. I moved to Camden the actual day the next one started in 1993.
