Athot a Day: Give Me Up, Baby, One More Time

My radio station while I work is BBC Radio 2. For some reason they've been giving a certain old hit song high rotation. No matter who the show presenter (host) is, there's that bloody song. Oh, I don't like "Never Gonna Give You Up", the chart-topper from the summer of 1987.

I did not take to that dance-a-single then, but now I think of the Rick Astley hit as a ghastly rubbished bit.

Thirty-three years has not been kind. And that voice!

On a more pleasant note: For years I wondered if Rick Astley was any relation to British composer Edwin Astley. He's not.

Also an Air Force brat. My Dad flew in Yukons as part of 437 squadron in the 60’s. We were also stationed in Baden Soellingen 70-72.
