Friday's Live Drive Link-Up

Our most controversial Link-Up top date!!

We platyed Kate Bush's Running Up That Hill and for the 5th day in a row Mack was able to link it to We All Stand Together by Paul McCartney AKA The Frog song.

But in an incredible turn of events Yolande swooped in and stole the 103.2 Dublin City FM hat right from his grasp and linked Running Up That Hill to The Frog Song. The decision as always is down to the researcher and Pam chose Yolande over MACK

Here's how Yolanda did it:

Kate bush sang with Peter Gabriel who was in genesis which is a book from the bible which also mentioned plagues of frogs. Please play frog song. Yolande :)

Best of the rest of the texts:

Frog songs first:

Link up Guess what colour most bushes are? Yeah your right they are green. Can pam name a muppet that is green. What's that john he's a frog. So frog song. MACK

Running up the hill is a green thing to do, kermit is green, therefore to support mack, the frog song, mark happy Friday

Going downhill fast by the divine comedy is sort of the opposite title. The divine comedy also had a song called the frog princess. So... I'm with mac, lets go with the frog song. Tony.

Or, Kate bush sang duet with Peter Gabriel, he was in genesis as was Phil Collins, his song was played by a gorilla in the dairy milk advert, so you could play on melancholy hill by gorillaz, mark

Running that hill was recently played on live-drive, which featured a warning about loose horses, so play crazy horses by the osmonds

Kate bush to George bush ... So play American idiot by greenday.. Frm disco stu

kate bush had a hit with peter gabriel who was a member of genesis. Phil collins was also in genesis. Phil was in an episode of miami vice as was glenn frey who was in the eagles with don henley. Play boys of summer.

Kate Bush to Bush the band, who's lead singer is married to Gwen Stefani who has collaborated with Linda Perry so play 4 Non Blondes

Kate Bush did a duet with Peter Gabriel who collaborated with Laurie Anderson on one of her albums. Ms. Anderson is married to Lou Reed who played with Gorillaz this year at Glastonbury. Damon Albarn was in Blur who had Keith Allen in their House in the Country video. Keith Allen has appeared on stage with Dundalk punk/folk singer Jinx Lennon. You never play Jinx Sarah, go on, be a rebel :-). Damncar

Running up that hill 2 keep on running by steve windwood 2 the steve miller band who sang jet airliner so play are you gonna gonna be my girl by jet. TEJ

Kate bush is to black bush whiskey is to thin lizzy is to whiskey in the jar :-)

Kate bush hounds of love was covered by the future heads. Just play that sleepy kev

Runnin up that hill leads nicely to run to the hills, or running free, or the loneliness of the long distance runner by iron maiden. Pam you know it makes sense, it being maiden friday and all that. Cosmo seinfeld

Julie Andrews also sang about hills in the Sound of Music. However, a more current (and local) Julie is Julie Feeney from Galway. Impossibly Beautiful is a great track from JF. Bill

Kate bush was signed to her record label on the recommendation of dave gilmour of pink floyd, so play 'wish you were here'

For Your August Bank Holiday Fartist Consideration

Live Drive is starting it's month of rivalries with
Brothers versus Sisters

The Everly Brothers


The Pointer Sisters

Sibling rivalry never sounded so good!

With 60% of the vote, The pointer Sisters are next weeks fartist!

Supergran Superfans!

John was outed as a closet Supergran Superfan on this mornings show, who what or when was Supergran?

This is from Wikipedia:

Super Gran is a 1980s children's television programme, about a grandmother with super powers played by Gudrun Ure. It was produced by Tyne Tees Television, and shown on Children's ITV. The show was adapted by Jenny McDade from books written by Forrest Wilson.

This is from John:

it was one of the best kids TV shows of all time, bonkers and brilliant!

Here's a visual aid

Wednesday's Live Drive link-Up

As always we had a Live Drive Link-Up for you this morning, and seeing as it would have been Jackie Kennedy Onasis's birthday today we though it only fit to play The Presidents Of The United States of America's track Peaches. Where did the link go? Well Bill made this amazing connection:

In America, the 'Peach State' is Georgia, which is home to Jimmy Carter, 39th President, as well as R.E.M. Carter was succeeded by Ronald Reagan, who's wife was Nancy. So was Frank Sinatra's daughter. She sang the mega-hit 'These Boots Are Made for Walking'. Bill

Best of the rest of the texts:

Hi sarah. Link up - peaches is one of bob geldofs children. Bob produced band aid (and live aid) with midge ure who was a member of thin lizzy (briefly!). So play anything by thin lizzy.]

Peaches are fruit and so are apples. Apple have a music store with loads of tracks so pick one Pam likes and send on a cap :) gavin

Peaches by the Presidents gets you to George Bush and from there to Simple Minds and then finally to The American. Tada

Peaches was also sung by the stranglers, another strangler was ted bundy who may or may not b related 2 al bundy from married with children, whose theme was love and marriage sung by frank sinatra who was in the rat pack so play that's amoré by dean martin. TEJ

Link-up a peaches grow on tress the leaves are green so is kermit the frog so the frog song. MACK

Connection. America horse with no name. Anthony dublin

Peaches & iggy- kick it. Does that work? It's my first time listening, not sure of the rules. Lovin the tunes tho :-) lorna in rathfarnham.

Presidents of the usa live in the white house which is one of the biggest yank villas, which is an anagram for vanilla sky. So play vanilla sky by paul mac cartney. :-P I'm kiddin, but its worth a shot just reversin one that won last week. Cosmo seinfeld

Live Drive Link Up

It's clear that you all clearly understand the rules to the Live Drive Link-Up, It's simple, find a clever connection between a song and another track using either the title or the artist and you could win yourself a 103.2 DCFM Baseball hat.

This morning we set you the task of linking Bobbie Gentry's Ode To Billy Joe to any other track. Disco Stu managed to link it to Star Star by The Frames. How did he do that? Just like this:

Ode to Billy Joe to Billy Joe from Greenday ... St Paddy's Day is a Greenday worldwide. New York holds the biggest St Paddy's Day parade . New York is known as the big apple.. Apple links to the Beatles as it was their label. The Beatles were huge stars. So play Star Star by The Frames ...

The best of the rest of the texts:

Ode covered by Sinead O'Connor who covered Nothing Compares 2u by Prince, who wrote Manic Monday for the Bangles, but its Tuesday so play Walk Like An Egyptian - Gavin

Bit macabre but Billy Jo jumped off a bridge as did richer manics, how about a design for life by the manics? Mark

She said black eyed peas in that song so play something by the black eyed peas.alex

What a depressing start to the day! Clever connection to cheer me up. It happened 3rd June feast of st. Kevin, actor called Kevin in The Bodyguard, play I will always Love You, please!

Bobbie Gentry's Ode To Billie Joe sings about a bridge, so, Red Hot Chillies Peppers Under The Bridge - Joe

Ode To Billy Joe sung by Bobbie Gentry to me and Bobby MacGee by Janis Joplin, Janis ian sang At 17, play at 17 by Janis Ian -Gemma

BILLY bragg sang birds and ships, the birds sang turn turn turn, so play turn it on again by genesis. TEJ

Ode 2 billie joe references tupelo,van morrison had an album and song calld tupelo honey,he married a model,as did billy joel, bout an ode 2 billy joel?(are we reaching?)bob:-)

Billy joe to billy joe from green day, to blue monday by new order. Cosmo seinfeld

In Ode to billy joe, the singers sister bought a store in tupulo, where elvis presley famously played. Frank skinner, a huge elvis fan, bought the shirt he wore at that performance, so regrettably, play 'three lions'

Ode to Billy joe - billie jean (Jacko)- Blue Jeans (Bowie) - Bullet the blue sky(u2)- bullet in the head (Rage against the machine)- Deep Purple album is Machinehead with Smoke on the Water :) nicknameless

Ode to Billy Joe Armstrong of Green Day. Like Bobby Gentry sang he was alone on FOD from Dookie.

How and by whom? It was The Eternal Journeyman and here's how he did it:

G'n'R is fronted by Axle Rose, cars have an axle, cars is sung by Gary Numan, who sang Are Friends Electric, so play Electric Avenue by Eddy Grant:-). The Eternal Journeyman

Hi sarah. Zig and Zag did a cover of Sweet Child of Mine (where'd THE WIG go). They also did a cover of steppenwolf (get your MOTHER running) so play 'get your motor running'.
Child of Mine Slash to Send Your Daughter To The Slaughter Iron Maiden

The name "Slash" reminds me of the name "The Edge" from U2. U2 is a spy plane. Bell X-1 is another secret military plane. Play "The Great Defector."

Sweet Child o Mine was it the film, The Wrestler, starring Mickey Rourke. However, Rourke now looks like he was on the loosing side of a big boxing match, a la Rocky Balboa. So play theme from Rocky. Bill

Might want to check these facts? Sweet child of mine links to god bless this child by billie holiday, which was covered by eva cassidy??? who sang somewhere over the rainbow so please play the version by the guy from hawai whose name i cant spell. Little missy

Wednesday's Live Drive link-Up

This mornings Live Drive Link-Up was The First Cut Is The Deepest by cat Stevens, we had a huge amount of entries for this one, but Pam was quite taken by USA Boy's link to R.E.M's Man On The moon! how did he do it? Well....

1st cut was covered by sheryl crow. Sheryls other half used to be lance armstrong. Neil armstrong was 1st man on the moon. So I go for rem. Man in the moon. Usa boy

'1st Cut' describes the hurt of love lost, which can be DEEP. However, love found can also be DEEP, as in 'River Deep, Mountain High' by Tina Turner (maybe). I really want a hat. Bill

Cat Stevens became interested in Islam while visiting in Marrakesh. So play "Marrakesh Express" by Crosby Stills & Nash. anonymous

1st cut: pj harvey's First album had the song Bleed. Title of that album is shelagig, so play that!

Simplicity this time.... 4 Cat Stevens play the year of the cat by al stewart:-) TEJ

First cut is the deepest and blood on the dancefloor m jackson.-silver surfer

First Cut Is The Deepest was covered by Rod Stewart play Baby Jane - Sheila
Cat steevens cats in the cradle covered by boyzone . . . Actually i have just sickened myself . . .

Jake stevens is the star of that irish tv skit show (cant think of the name) - which stars pj gallagher- which is the surname of noel and liam in oasis- who played champagne super nova! Celbridge chick :)

Cat stephens, my cat is called stephen, and got caught up in a fight wiv another cat yesterday and a few cuts, but the first is the deepest. So the same song.

No clever connection this morning as i cant get past these 2 words: cat power. She is so fabulous. Could you please play something from her earlier albums? Little missy

Cat Stevens sung wild world which was in footloose with kevin bacon .... Oh hang on that's not the game. Steve

Getting but hurts, so Hurt, Johnny Cash version. Elmo

If you've been cut you need a cure, particularly if the cut was caused by love. So for feline Mr Stevens there can only be one song. The Cures "Love Cats". :-) Thanks, Keith.

First cut is the deepest was covered by sheryl crow, who used to go out with eric clapton, who played the solo on while my guitar gently weeps. Plus as a bonus pam loves the beatles. Cosmo seinfeld

First cut is the deepest. Hopefully not deep enough to be the Final Cut! (Floyd)

Pinball Number Count

So we, in our wisdom asked you, the listener to add up all the numbers in The pointer Sisters / Sesame Streeet song Pinball Count.

tuesday's Live Drive link Up

This morning we gave you Black hole Sun by Soundgarden from which to create a link and Keith went from Black Hole Sun to the sound of Silence by Simon And Garfunkel, how you might ask, well..

Soundgarden suggests noise and Black Hole Sun suggests the absence of light and colour so how about Sound of Silence, Simon & Garfunkel? Thanks, Keith.

A few other suggestions that came in:

Soundgarden's Chris Cornell sang a James Bond theme so did Tom Jones so you can play It's Not unusual. Gavin

Soundgarden to Chris Cornell to Audioslave to Rage Against the Machine to Tom Morello to The Nightwatchman, so play One Man Revolution by him for the Tallafornia Man

Ok, Black Hole Sun to the band Hole with Courtney Love who was married to Kurt Cobain, lead singer of Nirvana so please play Polly. Little Missy

Chris Cornell was in the movie Singles, with Kyra Sedgewick who is married to Kevin Bacon who was in Footloose, so play footloose. Gemma.

Black Hole Sun to Invisible Sun by The Police or even to 3rd Stone From The Sun by Hendrix.
