Great news the pluggers are doing a good job. I heard Anneka Rice play "Blues Eyes" on her show on Saturday and she mentioned the new album, the release date, the fact that the track was an old Willie Nelson tune and that Duncan had replaced Ali on vocals and tell her what you thought!!!!!!!!
A few weeks back David Rodigan played Lord Creator's Kingston Town and mentioned the boys as the "Mighty UB40" on his Radio 2 reggae series.
www.bbc.co.uk/radio2/playlist if you click on the ub40 single you can see the last time that the boys were played on the BBC.
I normally listen to Ken Bruce so will listen out as he normally plays a track each day from the album of the week on his show.

Regards

Chronic

good result that,,,radio 2 have more sway than radio 1 in certain things, plus there audience or more likely to buy the album as opposed to nicking it...
and ub40s audience are probably more likely to listen to radio 2 than 1...

Great news.Maybe my memory is playing tricks but I'm sure the bloke who interviewed the boys from Blues and Soul magazine at Cropredy predicted it would be radio 2 album of the week.Will have to get him to pick my lottery numbers.
