REELIN IN THE YEARS – Classic Album of the Month
Wings’ 6th album was hugely anticipated just a few years after the breakup of The Beatles. Paul’s post-Beatles band had become almost as famous, and their 1976 American tour was so colossal that it merited a mammoth triple-record set.
Perhaps what was most interesting about this album was McCartney’s song selection. As well as the obvious range of hits from Wings’ albums (the most recent being “At the Speed of Sound”), Paul also sprinkled the song list with some surprises.
Fellow Wings bandmembers Denny Laine sang The Moody Blues hit “Go Now”, on which he sang the lead vocals when it was a hit in 1963; and Henry McCulloch, who sadly passed away during 2016, sang his “Medicine Jar”. Also thrown in the list, somewhat randomly, was Paul Simon’s “Richard Cory”.
But of most interest were the Beatles’ songs, some being heard performed live by a Beatle for the first time; “Lady Madonna”, The Long and Winding Road”, “Blackbird”, “I’ve Just Seen a Face” and the timeless “Yesterday”. They sent Beatles fans into raptures.
A video of the concert was released a few years ago, entitled “Rockshow”, providing a further tantalising glimpse into the world of an ex-Beatle.

The BIG CLEAN OUT
Old equipment gathering dust, equipment no longer used, stuff thrown under tables, boxes just piled up …
Just what was needed, a spring clean in summer … and many hands managed to clean out Studio D, Archiving, Tech Room and Museum storeroom. Most of the broken and unworkable equipment found its way to the recycling point at the council tip.
We also had to relocate very heavy translator across town for storage. Lucky we had hired a one tonne truck for the day
Thank you to everyone who helped on the day…. more pics at the end of this newsletter
Tas Networks and the Launceston City Council have reached an understanding to allow a connection to run over council property. City Park Radio has accepted Tas Networks offer to connect and paid the fees immediately. Vegetation clearing in the path of the proposed power feed has happened and now we wait for the pole and wires to be installed.
Meanwhile it is hoped that construction of the equipment shed at the base of the mast will begin shortly. Keep an eye on our facebook page for further updates.
Please support these business as they support your community radio station…. and don’t forget to mention you heard about them on City Park Radio.
