So far Universal have been conspicuous in their absence with regards to announcing any releases to commemorate Dusty's 80th! Mind you they haven't even acknowledged Motown's 60th anniversary! Useless lot! [:(!]

I believe the R2 documentary is to be called 'Definitively Dusty'. I expect a lot of us will be away from home or travelling when the first one goes out, it being on Dusty Day, so thank goodness for iPlayer!

Not sure if BBC Radio2 is available on internet radio?. Maybe available on BBC World Service.

For those in UK who won't be able to listen live and have SKY you can record -( SKY 0102). If you are staying in a hotel, listen on tv Freeview 702.
I'd rather see the world the way it used to be.......

Hi, there was a short piece on Dusty on last night's One Show. It was to commemorate the 20 years that she's been gone. I missed most of it, but have found it BBC iplayer. xxxx

im a bit disappointed that there isn't a new release, but as dustys music has been ransacked for so long with rehashed cds, I guess the only thing we could have would be a glorious, wonderful box set with absolutely everything on it, and imagine how amazing it would be if they had been holding something back that's totally new, but I guess that's just a pipe dream
