Radio 1 plug for Toujours Là
15th August 2000
Phillip gets a leBLEU mention on Radio 1 by Emma B (sitting in for Jo Whiley). Toujours Là was suggested for tomorrow as a link from Something for the Weekend by Divine Comedy. Emma B read out "The organ solo in 'something for the weekend' sounds just like my wife's alarm clock. As she is married to me and my single 'Toujours Là' by leBLEU is EGG15 on Pickled Egg records why not play this tomorrow" from Phillip's email.
