Much to my surprise, when I'd decided to make my show a Summer Special last month, it stayed hot and actually didn't rain for 99% of July! So I'm feeling optimistic about August and I'm keeping the Summer 'flavour' going. So here's a real 'scoop' for you. For August I'm playing a bloc of songs about ice-cream. From classics like Jonathan Richman And The Modern Lovers to less-than-classics by ...erm...   Pinky & Perky (part of this month's 'Secret Songs from the Sixties) plus two eerie ice-cream instrumentals during 'Soundtracks of the Strange' from the films 'Legion' (2010) and 'Ice Cream Man' (1995). 
This month's covers versions artist is Madonna, as she celebrates her 60th birthday on the 16th August. You can expect to hear a version of 'Like A Virgin' played on the recorder by Zoltan Kodaly School For Girlst, a country/bluegrass version of 'Material Girl' by Japanese duo Petty Booka and Indie versions of 'La Isla Bonita' and 'Beautiful Stranger' by Mega Emotion and The Big Moon. You'll also hear a track from Madge herself in an unusual collaboration of Madonna With Otto Von Wernherr recorded in the early 80s before her career took off. 
There's also a bunch of new short songs from BodegaThe SlugsMommy Long LegsPrimo and Dentist. Plus a new Summer single from Cornershop, rap from Brigitte Aphrodite, electro from Hologram Teen and Battery Operated Orchestra and some skiffle blues from The Billy Shinbone Show. So there are probably more musical flavours in this month's show than your average local ice-cream parlour!
