...and it is mercilessly shining its wicked way into every corner of the house, exposing quite how much dustin' and hooverin' needs to be done. Very soon. Maybe by the weekend or even later. Maybe I'll offer money to one of the kids to do it ( I have things to do, people to see. You know how it is). Anyway my main job today seems to be to get everyone out of the house with kit, keys, bags and food. 3 out, 1 to go. Then I can get to work on the show, choose a confession ('yes that's where we lost your older brother to the goblins under the bridge') and finish off work on the Radio 2 Book Club. Today it's Emma Donoghue and her Frog Music. She was Booker nominated for 'Room' and now publishes a murder mystery set in San Francisco in 1876 in the midst of a smallpox epidemic. The book is inspired by the unsolved shooting of a (and you have to admit this quite eye-catching) young cross-dressing frog catcher called Jennie Bonnet. There's a chapter here for you to sample...
And some song choices needed. I'm thinking CUPPA oldies today. 2.5 million folk say they are too busy to put the kettle on. The tea round is on its last legs (apparently) so let's hear it for the cuppa and choose a tune to go with the brew. What do you fancy?
Right where's that duster...

    Blame the “episode” appearing late for my tardiness. Well done all – perhaps a debut mention for bottom of the pops or are you someone who has changed their name?

    Storm in a Teacup - The Fortunes - Ella B
    Strange Brew – Cream - bottom of the pops & scrumpy magpie
    Java Jive - The Manhattan Transfer - Dissing Dave
    China In Your Hand - T’Pau – Katy, Flo, Deebee & Posh
    Rosealie - Thin Lizzy - muggles

    Morning all

    Sorry to be such a terrible, barely here, blogger. It seems there's lots to catch up on and I offer my best wishes to everyone who's got things going on - pleasant or otherwise .....

    I don't always get to hear much of the show, but I always grin when I hear a familiar name - I'm thinking of you all :))

    Good morning all - grey and wet thus far; a bit like the heron that was standing on the decking by the pond earlier this morning, when I got up to use the facilities........I hope he doesn't see our pond as his breakfast table again.

    All the best for today Zoe, go gently and be good to your self once it is done.

    Stressed Erica - hope things go well. Keep us posted! (no pun intended)

    Well done Canute on new job. Jocko juice called for methinks.

    Well done all for the mentions, some interesting tunes, as ever, Mr Mayo Sir. Listened to it on ithingy this morning as travelling yesterday evening. Same again tonight as I make my weary way back to the land of my birth. Hope the flight to Edinburgh is not delayed.

    Happy Tuesdays people.

    #107 You're welcome Canute. And your post made me smile.
    And I may just copy your exercise regime - genius.
    :^)

    Well, that's it then. The new exercise routine has started. The LP's are stored downstairs. The deck is in the lounge. So every 30 minutes or so I get up to change the record/turn it over, and to get a new record I have a flight of stairs to go down and up.

    The deck service/upgrade is sounding good. And this is the first time I've put on this T'Pau album in years. Thank you to all those who chose the track for today's topic and to Simon for playing it!

    Aaah, bliss.

    (I'm easily pleased.....!)
