March 3 - St. David's Day

Immediately after my two tests were done, Dr. DeLuca told us he was sick again and cancelled class. We're kind of worried about him. This class won't meet again for 2 weeks.

Anyway, there was a meeting at the station and I was able to play Welsh bands for a limited time. Unfortunately we only have the worst and most recent album by both the Stereophonics and Manic Street Preachers.

1 Super Furry Animals (Cardiff) - Sidewalk Surfer Girl - Rings Around the World 2001
2 Stereophonics (Cwmaman, Mid Glamorgan) - High as the Ceiling - You Gotta Go There To Come Back 2003
3 Manic Street Preachers (Blackpool, Gwent) - Ready For Drowning - This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours 1998
4 Julian Cope (Deri, South Glamorgan) - Screaming Secrets - Saint Julian 1986
5 Ffa Coffi Pawb - Lluchia Dy Fflachlwch Drosta I - Am Byth: Casgliad on Ganeuon Coll '86-'92 GR-BR
6 Funeral For a Friend (Bridgend) - She Drove Me To Daytime Television - Casually Dressed and Deep in Conversation 2004
7 Julian Cope - Trampoline - Saint Julian 1986
8 Gorky's Zygotic Mynci (Carmarthen) - Miniature Kingdoms - Barafundle 1997
9 Super Furry Animals - Ysbeidiau Heulog - Songbook: The Singles, Volume 1 GR-OR
10 The Crimea (Welsh people who formed the band in London) - Bombay Sapphire Coma - Lottery Winners on Acid EP 2004

Other bands I could have played, if we had CDs by them, are 60 Foot Dolls, Catatonia, and the Lost Prophets. Also World Party, but our vinyl "W" section is hard to get to. And John Cale, as Ross told me. And of course Tom Jones, Charlotte Church and Shirley Bassey. And all these people I've never heard of.
