Back in 1975, Radio City employed a then unheard of – at least by us – DJ by the name of Phil Easton. He started an evening radio show at 6:30 each week day called The Great Easton Express. On this show he featured all the news and sounds in rock music and it became essential listening each evening. The show ran for twelve years culminating each year with a Battle of The Bands competition at the Liverpool Empire Theatre. In 1988, with the popularity of rock music in decline, he moved on to other things and finally ended up presenting the City Talk Breakfast Show every day. He died in 2009 at the age of 59 after suffering a suspected brain haemorrhage at his home. In his memory, here at Jammy Toast, we have decided to resurrect one of our favourite features from his show where he would select a favourite album and then feature his three favourite tracks from that album. Here, in one place, are ssome of the albums we have featured in posts…
