#NotBaconBits - From Pearl Jam to...


Yesterday we played State of Love and Trust from the Singles soundtrack and Susan Omand goes off on a tangent with today's #NotBaconBits connection...

As always for #NotBaconBits, once you've listened to today's choice, we're looking for your connection suggestions for tomorrow's track.

Join in by tweeting us @albiemediaAM with the #NotBaconBits hashtag or adding your suggestions in the comments of our #NotBaconBits Facebook posts. It's like Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon but with music - remember the link can be as simple or contrived as you want, in any music genre (it doesn't have to be classical or pop) and you can link to anything about the song - the title, the artist, words in the song, something about the video ... anything as long as you can justify it. If we pick your suggestion for the link, you'll get the credit in that day's article and shout outs on our social networking streams.

Here's Susan's connection: "OK bear with me on this one. For my 16th birthday, I got one of the best presents ever - a stacking hi-fi of my own. It had a turntable, radio, double tape deck, graphic equaliser - the works, all in a smoked glass fronted, mahogany veneered cabinet. With it, I got a record token (remember those?) and I went into the big Woolworths on Union Street in Aberdeen and bought (this is where the link comes in) a couple of newly released 7" singles (see? Singles!) to play on it.  One of them was Julian Lennon's Too Late For Goodbyes."
