Morning all and here we go into another week. Jake Bugg on the radio now with Chris and sounding great. Listeners to Jo Whiley will not need telling that Jake is an intriguing talent who, whatever else, doesn't sound like he's a teenager from Nottingham. Jake talked about writing Lightening Bolt with 'my friend Iain' The Iain in question is my friend Iain Archer; you might remember in 2011 when Tired Pony played on the show (Gary Lightbody, Peter Buck et al) the last vocal was taken by Iain. He's carving quite a name as a producer and writer now and Jake's success will only add to that. There should be a new Tired pony album recorded soon.

While on the subject of twang, delighted to have Steve Earle back on the show. Bob Harris played a track from Steve's new album The Low Highway and the whole thing is rather wonderful I must say. I've loved his songs since Copperhead Road and Steve always has a lot to say on music, tradition, politics, America, acting, marraige (6 time veteran!) and life on the road. Should be good.

And songs for EXCAVATING please as Richard 3 (or is it?) is confirmed or denied. I know we've been here before but it is such a good story I think we should go digging again. The king in the car park (or underneath it)!

    Good morning everyone

    Lovely pic of the moon Deebee... it seems only a couple of days since there was a lovely full moon and before we know it, it will be full again, time passes so fast!

    How sad to hear of the death of Reg Presley, whom I last saw in 2010 on one of the Solid SIlver Sixties' tours and although he was around 69 years of age, he and the band were on top form.

    Who can forget this song of his, that he said was his pension and was #1 for 15 weeks after the Four Weddings and a Funeral film!

    Good morning everyone!

    Snowing here too, Shona, but only just started.
    My colleague announced yesterday that there was a "warning of yellow snow" not looking forward to that!

    Off to the coffee machine...

    Good Morning All

    Bright and chilly today. I took a photo when I was walking the dogpoppet. I was hoping for a sunrise picture, but by the time I got there the sun had ALREADY risen! This, however, is a good thing - it means the days are getting longer.

    Hoping for an earlier new blog today. Like Billie, I might not be around much - really busy at work at the moment. I'm hoping to be able to pop in for some choon choosing though.

    Did anyone else suddenly remember the Peter Sellers version of the Beatles Hard Days Night too late? The one he did in the style of Richard III.

    Evening again -

    We've just watched Stephen Poliakoff's " Dancing on the Edge". Yes. Would recommend it. there's another part tomorrow. When this episode finished I said to Mr. something like " It's the seething underlying prejudice which is worse than the overt". Then I followed that by saying "Where did that eloquence come from?" Ha!


    Erica - love to you and your brave boy. Keep us informed about your progress and maybe we'll find some ways to donate?


    Jennie - so sorry you were upset by JV. I agree with most of what you said. I seldom get the chance to hear him and I wouldn't know about the Daily Mail cos I never read it. To be "Devil's Advocate" - maybe his ignorance - of any subject - is a good thing? He's broadcasting to a vast audience - who - in the main - on the subject - are also ignorant? You said he had a Doctor there - did he/she put things in perspective? To my mind it might have been worse if JV had read up on it and had taken a Jeremy Paxman stance. However, I'm still very sorry that you were upset.


    We have a Tim Vine DVDVDVDVD - (Paul O'Grady!) - and there is one bit when he talks about his brother's show and he says something like "Today we're talking about Supermarket Trollies. Can they give you Cancer?"


    We had Corned Beef Bake tonight with Beetroot from a jar.


    I KB'd some good stuff including "I Predict a Riot", "I'm With You", "Got My Mind Set On You", "I'll Never Stop Loving You" and cos it's based on it - "The Dam Busters' March" - all really good performances but nothing perfect. Bechod!


    I can't be here much for the next 3 days - too much on. Might be able to comment later in the days. I shall miss the choonchasing - but also beating that Queen Sal at the #100, #200 or whatever it may be! Ha!


    A special message for Gazza - @ Gazza - Is it Thursday? Good Luck & God Bless! xxx


    We're going to turn in shortly - I'm looking forward to it - we have new pillows!
