Never again (again)
Greetings to all bloggers old and new, here we are again for another week. Hope the (bank holiday) weekend was a good one. Mine was spent camping in Cheltenham at the Greenbelt festival. The festival bit was good, the camping bit was not. The company was excellent, the tent was spacious but the Sauvignon Blanc was the right temperature. About 4 degrees. I'm sure if you are a polar explorer this is a weedy complaint but lying in a field as the condensation starts to ice over and the 4 layers of clothing you are wearing prove ineffectual is not really a fun thing to do. And I don't want to do it again. Ever. But when child 3 insists, I know I'll give in. Just the one more time then...
Back at 5 then, with some live tunes from the very talented Lissie. Her album "Catching a Tiger" is very fine and she has been getting great reviews for her gigs here. She's actually from California but spends a lot of time over here. If her contribution to the Great British Songbook is what I think it is, eyebrows will be raised, heads will turn and breaths held. 'She's not really going to try that is she?' 'Good Heavens she is!" and so on. Then again she might have changed her mind. Find out tonight!
And oldies today to say goodbye to "The Bill" which bows out tonight. After 27 years and 24,000 episodes it's the least we can do. Bill Oldies and not Bill Oddies just to be clear.
See you at 5.05.
