Last week’s Golden Discs voucher giveaway was a disaster.
The winning song should have ran last Sunday, Father’s Day.
Bodger slipped up massively. He is very sorry.
The winner of the €25 Golden Discs voucher in last week’s competition is Stephen F, who penned for his dad the following.
For Fathering Sunday, please give the Golden Discs voucher to my father Robin and play him ‘A Whiter Shade Of Pale’ by Procol Harum while you’re at it. It is his favourite song from the 60’s and remind our family of trips to France on the ferry from Rosslare when we were young, listening to ‘Our Generation’, on a 4 tape 60’s compilation my parents bought over the phone long before online record shops were even a thing, as we travelled further south through France…
Bertie Blenkinsop: “For Father’s Day please play “My Old Man” by Ian Dury & The Blockheads as it’s a gorgeous, heartwarming tune that says the things you wouldn’t have the nerve to say to your Da.”
Starina: “For Fathering Sunday, please give the Golden Discs voucher to my father John and play him Johnny Cash’s ‘Folsom Prison Blues‘ cos when we were driving through Folsom a couple years ago he wouldn’t let me play the song in the car because ‘I won’t have country and western in my truck!’.”
Me Myself I: “For Fathering Sunday, please give the Golden Discs voucher to my father Tom and play him ‘Madonna – Papa Don’t Preach’ while you’re at it because I’m male and gay so it would confuse the hell out of him (the keeping the baby part, not the being gay and playing a Madonna song, that’s fairly standard!)”
