Sorry about the deleted posts - a cock-up at MixCloud, my fault!

Okay, new podcast. This is Kate's penultimate session in the STAR studio at St Andrews, and she has taken the opportunity to play a few tracks she wanted to play during the year but didn't get around to them. Actually, even though there's only one track from "our era," I really loved the music in this session. Betty Davis and Cymande were totally funky; Stevie Wonder's most introspective track ever - They Won't Go When I Go (from his 1974 album Fulfillingness' First Finale) - continues to grow on me with its overtones of Bach and Brahms (chatting to Kate about this, she told me I was getting deep into the musicology for once! :laugh:); Frank Ocean's version of Henry Mancini & Johnny Mercer's Moon River... well you can't go wrong with that songwriting combination... the version has some strange vocal treatment at the beginning but settles down wonderfully; and at last she plays some Milton Nascimento. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it.

Next week I'll be guesting in the studio and we're hoping to run for two hours. I've requested some 1960s stuff.

got myself some extra-skinny braces, between this and another one with a grey-black pattern

Pretty nice combo here, reminds me of the 10th doctors outfit from the Doctor Who episode Silence in the Library.

Also wore this shirt with a more 90s tie and my green tweed jacket, which looked pretty neat.

Giving this purple tonic jacket another chance. Not sure such a close-fitting jacket does me any favours as far as my shoulder-to-waist ratio is concerned, but its nothing worth throwing away if I can fix it, and I'm pretty sure I can.
The shirt I'm wearing in this pic also has an odd dark, tall collar band with a bright white button so it might honestly have it's own neat look worn without a tie and just buttoned all the way up David-lynch style.

I like the black and red checkerboard tie, i would wear that, nice combo with the dark grey pinstripe and dark purple shirt too.

Any idea the age of this jacket i just bought online for £1(prob cos it has moth holes, don't bother me part of buying vintage) i'm thinking seventies. Thanks.

Im not a fan of the cutaway or spread collars. I dig the jackets and the braces though.

Thats fair. Honestly, that shirt works more without a tie than it does with one, the dark collar band makes it weird. I have a lot of more narrow semi-spear collar shirts, but the problem with them is they're all too baggy everywhere else, even for how loose most shirts are on me.

My guess is very late sixties to early seventies. Before the worst excesses of the seventies proportions kicked in, along with crimplene, terylene etc.
Thanks, i do have a prince of wales check jacket from the late seventies and the lapels are rather wide, still fits better and is nicer quality than any modern cut blazer i have had though.

Ive had that problem before. I gained plenty weight in my mid forties, otherwise its not too expensive to have the taylor fit them.
