An Evening with Pet Shop Boys
Jo Whiley

Pet Shop Boys, the most successful duo in UK music history spend an evening with Jo talking about their incredible career and latest album, Super. Since signing to Parlophone Records in 1985, they've achieved 42 Top 30 singles in the UK including 22 Top 10 hits and four number ones. They have released 12 studio albums all of which have made the UK Top 10 as well as album charts around the world. Pet Shop Boys' new album, Super, was produced by Stuart Price and in July they play an exclusive four-date residency called Inner Sanctum at the Royal Opera House in London.

I am so glad as a community we help each other by alerting us to programmes like this but it astounds me that the official site does nothing. if we relied on them we'd miss everything.

Thanks! I'll have a chance to listen to her BBC podcast (or whatever) a little later this afternoon.

In western Canada (Victoria, BC) depending on daylight savings time, we're (PST) usually 8 hours behind London (GMT) time. The same time zone as San Francisco and LA... as I'm sure you're all keenly interested to know.

Hey... as I mentioned the PSB are going to be in Vancouver (about 40- 50 miles from my city) on Oct 24 this Autumn. Little did I know that this is only the THIRD concert in their Super tour. Usually when they make it to Vancouver, it's much later on in their tour schedules. Luckily my GF likes the PSB a lot now too ... maybe I play them a lot, or something, I dunno ;) ... so we're both going :)

Maybe we'll get a release date for 20S. No I doubt it too.

The official site is very quiet at the moment - any momentum between singles seems lost really. Shame. And tonight's show. sounds like it might be the Mermaid theatre show again? Maybe I just dreamt it.

On the Mermaid front - it needs a proper release. I think i'd like that as an album ore than any other.

Can't stand the woman and I can't imagine the show will reveal any new news, but always nice to have an hour for the boys on the UK's biggest radio station.

I'll have it on while the England v Portugal game is on the TV - be a bit surreal, but there we go!
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth.
