Links Are Dead - I Know

I keep getting Emails from people asking me to re-upload the links and music etc. I think people are just getting to those particular pages so are not reading the reason for the dead links.

So I am putting this in place so hopefully people will read it and stop Emailing me about it.

The reason the links are dead is that my account with Media Fire has been closed with all 11,000 files lost. That is why you can not download the things and No I can not re-upload them.

Eventually I will start doing that again when I have found something suitable. In the meantime this blog will be information only blog.

Thank you all

OMD - Red Frame / White Light

'Red Frame/White Light' is the second single of the synthpop group Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark. The song is about the red telephone box in Meols that was used by the band to make calls to organise their gigs

The telephone box that inspired 'Red Frame/White Light' is located at the crossing of Birkenhead Road and Greenwood Road in Meols. In the nearby pub "The Railway Inn" the band would meet and used the telephone box to organise their gigs and transportation.

In the songs lyrics the phone number is mentioned: 6323003. Fans would ring the number expecting to get one of the band members, but got a confused home owner in their own area code. Over the years it has become a kind of sacred place for OMD fans. In 2004 OMD fan Stephen Cork started a successful campaign to get the telephone box repainted in time for a fan tour on April 10, 2005.
