What Have They Done? is a new series from producer/presenter Colin MacDonald at Raidió Coharra, prompted by fond memories of the 1970 Ruby Tuesday B-side – a UK chart placing for New York’s 1969 Woodstock phenomenon Melanie Safka.
‘Look What They’ve Done To My Song, Ma’ made the Top 40 (only just!) the following January in its own right. And despite her sentiments therein about cover versions, Ms Safka has recorded a fair few herself.
Presented by Colin MacDonald – Tune-in at 12 midnight on 107.5 FM and DAB radio or go to Listen Again anytime on the paisleyfm.co.uk website. First programme in the series on Friday 27 August 2021 at 12 midnight.
