Classic live Cure (and more) on BBC Radio

"On BBC Radio 6 last night(01/07/09) Gideon Coe played 4 Cure songs live from Camden Palace in 1985. You can catch the program on the BBC IPlayer. Listen from 1h 59 minutes in. Songs played were Charlotte Sometimes, Close to Me, Primary and The Walk. Good old times!
Also on the BBC iPLAYER check out 6 Music at Glastonbury Adam and Joe's Glasto Gold, they played Inbetween Days from the BBC's Glastonbury vaults. Listen in from 56minutes 50sec. They even have Robert's picture on!!
And check out Jools Holland Monday 29th June 2009, listen in from 42minutes 50 seconds. Jools interviews the singer from Bat for Lashes and played Disintegration. She mentions covering A Forest and how much she likes the band.
So i made the mistake of typing "The Cure" in the search bar of the BBC's iPlayer and found another song. Inbetween Days was played on Richard Allinson's show on saturday 27th June. Listen in at 2.06'. He mentions people with wild hair." (Thanks JC)

Goodbye to Classic CoF...for now.

"Say goodbye on a night like this..." After 13 years of hosting the Classic CoF website, Compuserve is pulling the plug on their Ourworld publishing and hosting servers, starting sometime tonight/tomorrow/soon, and the old CoF website will be gone from the net. But you will still be able to access much of it via the Internet Wayback Machine, and I will put the entire site up again, once I find a new home for it, but that might be a while. So thank you to Compuserve and everyone who contributed to CoF, read it, enjoyed it, and found help & info on it, over the last 13 years. It was a blast! Most of the time. ; ) Goodbye old friend, you served us well. : )

Update: Just to be absolutely clear, the only thing going away (and not for too long, everything has been saved locally, and will be uploaded to a new home soon-ish) is the old CoF site. This one will still be here and will be updated all of the time, just as it has been for the last year and a half.

Update (July 7th): And it is gone. : (
