Zyd's Head Scratchers

"It's Sunday night - you're listening to Fusion - and tonight we've got another Sunday Set for you".

Just 16 words, but 16 words I love saying on a Sunday evening.  It means that you're about to hear another set of tunes that someone has taken their time to think about and commit to broadcasting.

At one time or another we've probably all done some sort of list of our favourite songs.  But try doing a list of about 20-30 songs now.  Then try it again in a few weeks.  I bet the lists would be different.  Mine change daily dependent on what mood I'm in, what I've been listening to, what I've just "discovered" through someone tweeting something I'd never heard before etc. etc.  And long may that continue.  The thought of never being open to something different is something I can't contemplate.

But what a playlist can, and does do, is give us a snapshot as to what someone was listening to or enjoying at a certain time.  It can also often tell us about a person's musical memories as they grew up.  And I'm constantly privileged that people wish to share those memories.

Last night Neil - or Zyd as he's known - shared some of those memories in his "Head Scratchers" set.  He chose the name Head Scratchers as he spent days scratching his head thinking of songs to include, along with the reasons why he chose them.  It was a blinding set of music, and a joy to broadcast.

The set-list is below, and you can listen to it by clicking on this link:
