As some of you may know, I've been trying to tempt some lapsed fans on Facebook to investigate my more recent music. There's a Be Bop Deluxe Facebook page, plus a 'Fans Of Bill Nelson And Be Bop Deluxe' Facebook page, (plus my own personal page.)

I've mentioned elsewhere on the forum how shocked I was by the number of people joining these pages who appear to have literally no knowledge of my career beyond the 1970s or early '80s, though they seem to enjoy wallowing in the nostalgia of the Be Bop Deluxe era in a big way.

So...one of my crafty ploys to drag 'em kicking and screaming into the 21st Century has been to post videos of some of my more recent recordings that might prove palatable to them.

So, here's a new one I made for the track 'The Golden Days Of Radio' from my 'Fancy Planets' album. I chose this track because of its deliberate classic rock feel and its sentimental homage to various artists, (including Be Bop Deluxe.) The video I've assembled for the track evokes this nostalgic vibe. Check it out in Dreamsville's Essoldo Cinema. Here's the link:

A fantastic piece, as always Bill. It is quite amusing to watch the reactions of the newcomers to your Facebook page. The clock clearly stopped for some in 1978 and others a little later.
