Listen to this week’s Killer Diller show here:

Killer Diller with The Commissioner (28-06-11)

For those who tuned in to Wireless FM this Tuesday night (28 June 2011) for the regular Killer Diller show and expecting to hear the dulcet tones of its resident host, Johnny Alpha, they would have been surprised to find it being hosted by The Commissioner. The signature tune was the same and the format was familiar, but the commentary may have caused a few to check whether they had time-warped into Thursday night’s Cruising with The Commissioner. Well, Johnny Alpha was off on a tour of Europe and asked fellow Wireless FM DJs to cover his Killer Diller show during his break.

So, the first up to provide this Killer Diller filler was The Commissioner, aiming, as far as possible, to follow the familiar style of Johnny Alpha . . . . although no one does it better that JA himself. Anyway, the playlist included many tracks that have, or might, appear on Killer Diller, plus a few that were indulgences for The Commissioner.

The music quickly ate up the time and, too soon, it was the witching hour and all over. For the connoisseurs or the curious, here’s the playlist:

Bell Bottoms – Elliott Chavers
The Well’s Gone Dry – Dorothy Williams
So Fine – The Santells

Now, you can’t say that isn’t a good selection (please take that as an instruction, rather than a consultation) and you will have to endure a period of eager anticipation until you discover who is providing the Killer Diller filler next week.

In the meantime, have fun!
