Real Street Variety Performance

All the bad stuff gets a bit depressing sometimes, so, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, allow me to introduce you all to the first ever Real Street Variety Performance. Our first guest is singing her number one hit from 1992. Please welcome Miss Tasmin Archer…

Amazing! And now, from north of the border… Laurel and Hardy in Bonnie Scotland:

Some of you will know I’m a bit of a Jethro Tull fan, so I’m delighted they are able to join us on today’s show…

One of the few programmes I miss in the five years without a TV licence is this:

That’s all for today’s show. Thank you to everyone who took part. You deserve some royalties, but, you’re not getting any. That’s showbiz.

Stay tuned for more posts about politicians and their devious, destructive ways. Wouldn’t life just be better without them? Fortunately, we have great music, love and laughter to carry us through the day. That and the Prozac!

    Never knew you were a Jethro Tull fan, Stewart. So am I. I was certainly into the early period of Tull, and when Songs from the Wood came along I was glad it showed a return to form. I did not actually see the band until the Catfish Rising tour, and thereafter a few more times. This summer we had Glenn Cornick and his wife staying with us, and Glenn joined in a session I arranged at a local pub. He still plays with the members of the band from time to time, usually at conventions.

    Oh yes, Wrinkled. I started buying the LPs in the mid-80s, then had to top them up with CDs (bah humbug!). I’ve never seen them play. I was a bit of a late starter even though I’ve been a fan for nearly quarter of a century. I’m a little jealous you know one of the members. Well, quite a bit actually!

    I find a lot of Tull’s songs need a few listens to appreciate their brilliance, but I found The Whistler instantly likeable, which is the reason I chose it. Always trying to make converts!

    And James Finlayson, in the L&H clip, reminds us of where, ‘D’oh!’ really came from.

    Did you notice he said “D’oh, och” in this?
