And good day to you. Thursday already. Week disappearing. Everyone seems to have enjoyed Squeeze last night and I just loved hearing Labelled With Love. There is something about those songs Glen and Chris wrote in the 70s and 80s particularly that resonate still. It would be absolutely fantastic if their new tunes withstood comparison. Singers and writers tend to have their golden period when they have the Midas touch (too much gold in that analogy) and then spend the rest of their years reliving past glories. So we look forward to the new Squeeze album and the tour with that great idea of selling the gig CD's at the back. A new economic model is emerging...
A post show trip to see the mighty Bellowhead in Camden at the Roundhouse where we had the Electric Proms a while back. They didn't exactly rock but rather jigged and reeled. The mosh pit (everyone standing up basically) heaved with pogoing morris dancers and sweaty shanty singers. They really need to be seen live to be enjoyed in all their 11 piece glory. Not all the songs are easy and they started with some of the more challenging tunes but it only takes a handful of songs about debauchery before we were all succumbed in the end.
Nige cooks tonight (pudding I think) and songs please the NEW ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY. Who appears to be the Bishop of Durham Justin Welby . Your ABofC oldies please.
Have a well-balanced and enlightened Thursday, see you after 5

    Morning all

    Busy busy week, so no blogging for me so far!

    Apparently a blog has been written but has disappeared in the BBC's chaos per our glorious leader.

    Hopefully it will appear soon but as Jilly says it is for an ARFO from 1978.

    A

    PS This time next week several bloggers incl me, will be on the phones taking calls for the Radio 2 jukebox for Children in Need.

    Good morning ladies

    Grey and dull here in Surrey but no rain ... yet!

    Just to give non-twitterers the heads up, over there Simon has deemed the ARFO should come from 1978.

    Thinking caps on and see you over the page x

    #87 - I have a N***A phone which has FM radio and very little else - no camera, touchscreens, internet etc and it is really cheap and works very well - does all I want anyway!

    PCM - how dreadful, the inane chat must drive you mad. I suppose the only small saving grace is that it isn't commercial radio with unbearable ads!

    Can't you just use a small portable radio with a headphone socket rather than a phone? I never had very good experiences trying to get FM radio on phones in the past but they may have improved.

    Thanks for the mention again - usually switch to Classic FM on the Friday drive home. Need some purging as am forced to listen to Radio 1 at work. Nick Grimshaw is quite funny, Fern is ok, but by the time Scott Mills comes on, I've usually lost the will to live. Am far too old to get his innuendo bingo. need to ask Ffather Christmas for a new phone with FM Radio. (Cant get DAB at work).

    Have a good weekend everyone.

    Good morning all - bit grey so far, but the birds are all up and about, squabbling over the feeders.

    Can I ask why CE has guests on his show and proceeds to try and get them to give him the answers he has just discovered the previous day by reading his/her book and keeps doing a Jeremy Paxman by saying "Come on!" Not exactly Parkie is he?!
