Recommended Posts

With the popular compilation album soon to release it's 100th album in the summer, i am sure many of you will have bought or recieved an album from this series at some point...

The first CD i bought was actually 'Now 29!' We are now at 'Now 99!' pretty scary.

Share your first Now cd or memories and favourite Now album.

I (think) had the first NTWICM album on tape (pirated). Remember stuff on it like Bonnie Tyler, Phil Collins and Men without Hats. Never had one on CD as it was around the time I stated to get heavily into Dance music and the Now albums held no interest for me. They still don't.

Nowadays these albums are crap... I admit, but back in the day when we only had radio, top of the pops and mtv (when it actually showed music videos) they were okay as an album in my opinion.

Thing that gets my goat is all the ministry of sound albums these days, seems to be a new one every other week.

I see radio 1`s summer mix is on much earlier but seems like a mostly rinse and repeat what I`ve heard yet, only heard about 3 or 4.

As for the now`s well the 80`s were the best for those,not as I bought any.

Yep, i thought that too... Sure they are the same or very similar to last years.

Maybe as the school holidays come they`ll have some different tracks on there.

The weather will probably become unsettled by them.

I had the first 6 of these. Duran Duran were a feature of the first few. I remember thinking Now 3 was the best of the ones I had with Now 5 being a bit weak.

There was also a rival series called 'Out Now' but to my knowledge it folded after the first few editions.

That was the last time I had any interest in pop music. Got into Acid House in its infancy and it's pretty much defined my musical taste ever since.

      Bought ticket today for an Aly Bain/ Phil Cunningham concert. 
      I'm not a great Aly Bain fan with his electric fiddle, but quite like Phil.  However, I am quite happy to support the local school fund raising.
      Mmm, I wonder how much of the proceeds will go to the school?

      We all love a BBQ. But what makes it special for you?
      Are you a steak all the way person or is it just sausages and burgers in  bap?
      Is it always a cool beer , glass of wine or maybe something a bit lighter?
      Got any tips on how to light the fire in the wind? A favorite BBQ  recipe  or what do you do if it rains?
      Does the weather matter? Any funny (but non nasty, lol) bbq related gaffs? 
      let us know!

      Hi all.
      I am an amature DJ and also a keen weather enthusiast and been a member on here for a little while now and so pleased i found this site as i have learned so much more about the wonderful weather we have. So in return i have decided to put my mixing skills to the test and do a special weather related mix...
      So if you can please leave any songs you can think of that are related to the weather be it by song title or song /artist themselves. I will choose the best ones and create a mix for you all to enjoy soon.
      Thanks in advance 'doctor'
