Hey, it's Paul Cavalconte in for Corny O'Connell on this Friday. Question Of The Day breaks the sound barrier, marking the anniversary of the supersonic jet, the Concorde, which launched in 1976.

The jet-set vehicle is grounded now, but let's zoom into the weekend quicker than Phil Collins sprinting off to Live Aid! Your songs about speed and space age travel are welcome and I'll play a set after 9 a.m.

Songs played:

1. Flight of the Conchords,  "Business Time
2. Oasis, "Supersonic"
3. Steve Miller Band, "Jet Airliner"
4. Coldplay, "Speed Of Sound"
