    Here is a list of pop songs which you never seem to hear anymore on the radio (at least I haven't):

    Magic Fly - Space (1977)

    Come ON, all you radio DJs - it's about time you played these songs again. What's the matter with you all?

    Can anybody else think of any more long-forgotten pop songs which could do with a bit of radio recognition every now and then?

    Oh, I want to add one other song to that list:

    Tantalise - Jimmy The Hoover (evokes memories of the hot summer of 1983, when that song was played to death).

    My Name Is Michael Caine - Madness (1984)
    Making Plans For Nigel - XTC (1979)
    To Be Or Not To Be - BA Robertson (1980)
    My Resistance Is Low - Robin Sarstedt (always evokes memories of that red hot summer of 1976)
    It Only Takes A Minute (100 Ton And A Feather, again '76)

    Oh yes, please do. Once you start thinking of no-longer-played songs, you can really think of loads and loads.
