"It's going to be played on the radio, so we'd better change it."

Hi everyone

I hope you can join me tomorrow on Team-FM for the Music Machine! On the team, we're passionate about music, and the Music Machine is a perfect way to tell you about the songs being played.

In hour 1, anything goes, but I do have the usual features.
In the Vinyl Countdown, where I play a song from my record collection, we have a B side this time from 1967. But it's a good one!
In "Not Now, I'm Listening", if you like thriller books, we have the perfect story for you.

Cass Elliot Celebrated in Our Time.

Hi everyone

Our show which celebrates music of the 60's and 70's is a little different this week.

We will have the music history and the featured year in hour 1, focusing on 1972 this time.

In hour 2 however, we celebrate the music of Cass Elliot. Had she lived, it would have been her birthday tomorrow, but she died sadly in July 1974.

The Music Machine is a Figure of Speech.

Hi everyone

I'd love it if you could join me tomorrow for the Music Machine on Team-FM, 7 PM in the UK, 2 PM Eastern.

In hour 1, I have a good range of music, we had quite a few requests last week, and if you'd like to choose something, feel free!
In the Vinyl Countdown, where I play a song from my record collection, we'll hear a mono version of a 60's hit we play a lot on Team-FM, but usually you hear it in stereo. It's elusive, but we should be able to find it! There's a clue.
There's also our feature, Not Now, I'm Listening.

The Music Machine, You came along when everything was wrong and put a song in my heart.

Hi to everyone

After you're Totally 80's and Bear's Lair fix, I hope you can join me, Brian Hartgen, on Saturday at 7 PM UK time, 2 PM Eastern for the Music Machine.

In hour 1 I have the regular mix of good music spanning the decades, your requests if you send them in, and the usual features.
In the Vinyl Countdown, we have one of my singles from the 1970's.
In Not Now, I'm Listening, it's a complete contrast. Unusually for this show, it's a song from just last year, 2015. It's definitely a story with a twist in the tale. It is not what you would expect!

Our Time Scores Four Goals!

Hi everyone

While I'm on the air for the Music Machine today, I hope you can join me tomorrow for the show, Our Time, at 5 PM UK, 12 PM Eastern. Music and memories from the 60's and 70's.

A lot of historic music events took place on 4 September, and I'll tell you about those. We also have the A to Z of Pop, focusing on the letter B. We'll hear some songs starting with that letter, but it's the stories behind them that we're also interested in.

Should the Music Machine Have a Different Name?

Hi everyone

I hope you can join me, Brian Hartgen, on Saturday at 7 PM in the UK, 2 PM on the East Coast of America, for 2 hours of fantastic music, and a little learning into the bargain.

In hour 1, I have music from the 80's back to the 40's and 50's this week.

In "The Vinyl Countdown", playing a song from my record collection, we have a nice scratchy song from 1967. It's a Northern Soul classic but did not perform too well on the singles chart. It's a great one.

In "Not Now, I'm Listening", we hear a song about friendship. It's a real rave from the grave.

I Ain't Married to a Hard Headed Woman Called Lay Down Sally!

Hi everyone

The weekend is approaching fast, and for those of us living in the UK, it's a three-day weekend! So do join me for the Music Machine on Saturday, 7 PM UK time, 2 PM US Eastern.

In hour 1, there's a wide range of music spanning the decades, including our feature "The Vinyl Countdown", a song played straight from my record collection. This time, it's a classic hit from 1983!

Where Were You in 73?

Hi everyone

On Sunday at 5 PM UK time, 12 PM US Eastern, I'll be along with Our Time, the show where we relive the golden days of the 60's and 70's particularly.

As well as playing some top tunes from those decades, I will share with you historical musical events from the period. Together, we'll also relive the highlights of the chart from this week in 1973, and hear extracts from the news events, TV adverts and movies from the year. Do you have favourite songs from 73? Do let me know.

The Music Machine, When We Were Young.

Hi everyone

I hope you will be able to join me, Brian Hartgen, on Saturday at 7 PM UK time, 2 PM Eastern, for the Music Machine!

In hour 1, it's our usual box of delights where anything goes. But I do have the regular features for you:
"The Vinyl Countdown", where I play a song straight from my record collection. This time, we have a hit which entered the charts in March of 1969.
In "Not Now, I'm Listening", where we listen to the words of a song more carefully than usual, we hear about someone who is desperate to be at the top of the charts.

The Music Machine Says, Bop-shu-waddy.

Hi everyone

Another edition of the Music Machine comes your way tomorrow at 7 PM UK time, 2 PM Eastern.

We'll have "the Vinyl Countdown", playing a song direct from my record collection. This week, we go back to May of 1967.

"Not Now, I'm Listening", will also be part of the show, where we listen to the lyrics of the song more carefully than usual.
