If you had been unlucky enough to be in St. George's Hospital, Tooting in the early 1990s, and too confused or impaired to find a proper radio station on your bedside dial, you may have stumbled upon the Friday Soul Show on Hospital Radio Nine, presented, after a fashion, by this blogger.
As you struggled in vain to alert the duty nurse to your distress, these are some of the things you may have heard....
Wilson Pickett - 'Hey Jude' (1969)
Sam & Dave - 'Soul Man' (1967)
Bobby Bland - 'Ain't No Love In The Heart Of The City' (1974)
(Whilst I packed my records away at the end of the show, the guy who did the hour after me arrived. He was a quiet, beardy man in his forties called Roger Wallace and he presented the 'album track show'. Nice.)
