Last Sunday: "Show Me the Place" in Boris Grebenshchikov's "Aerostat" show (at Radio Russia).
BG (БГ) is perhaps the most celebrated rock musician in Russia.

The 8th song - Crazy to Love You.
Premiered at Silver Rain on December 22.
Presented by Vladimir Matetsky, a composer, who presumably stole the melody of Dance Me to the End of Love for his 1985 song Lavanda...

Two Old Ideas still left unaired in Russia: Anyhow and Banjo.
