I’ve just heard that David will now be on Radio 2 tomorrow, not today. So, that’s Steve Wright’s show, tomorrow, from 2PM (UK).
I’ve really enjoyed your musings on Saturday’s North American premiere. If you were involved, I want to hear from you.
I’ve two things for you all to enjoy today:
It doesn’t matter where in the world you are, as everyone can enjoy these online.
If you are in the UK, then you can find Radio 2 at 88-91 FM. If that’s too old-fashioned for your liking, then you could listen via DAB digital radio, digital satellite (Sky, channel 0102), digital cable (Virgin, channel 860 or 902, depending on whether you are an ex-NTL or ex-Telewest customer) or even Freeview (channel 702).
If you’re listening online, you can listen live by clicking Listen in the top-right corner or by clicking the more forthright LISTEN in the suitably coloured ‘On An Island’ blue box to the right of the page. That opens up the BBC Radio Player, which gives you the option to listen with Real Player or Windows Media Player, if you prefer.
If you can’t listen live, there is always the handy ‘Listen Again’ feature, which allows you to replay the programme as many times as you like for a period of seven days following the original broadcast. This can be activated by opening the BBC Radio Player, as directed above, and choosing your desired show from a considerably long list.
A quick note to fans in the USA about tomorrow’s DVD release…
DVDs from Best Buy and Borders stores contain extra goodies.
Select DVDs from Best Buy will include a three-track audio CD of the AOL Sessions. The songs are ‘On An Island’, ‘Take A Breath’ and ‘High Hopes’. The CD comes in a cardboard sleeve which is inside the DVD’s shrink-wrapped packaging.
The Borders DVD package includes a mini-poster. This shows David at Abbey Road, with the band onstage behind him and green lasers. The poster’s size is approximately four-times the size of the DVD booklet. This can be found inside the (shrink-wrapped) DVD case.
Look out for stickers announcing the exclusive extras on the front of the DVD cover before you buy.
These are available in the US only.
‘Remember That Night’ is released across Europe today (except for Finland and Sweden, where it is released on Wednesday).
