  1. Being a jazz fan, really enjoyed BBC4 last night and on Friday evening. There must have been as much jazz on those two evenings as on the previous how many years.
  2. Good programme on BBC4 about Hull during the Blitz. Very touching. My parents lived near Salford Docks during the Blitz and experienced similar devastation.
  3. Brilliant journalist and editor of the Sunday Times. He exposed the Thalidomide scandal. He was shafted by Rupert Murdoch when he took over Times Newspapers.
  4. Talking Heads is just so good. I've seen all of them recently except the Martin Freeman one. I'll watch on the I player. Looking forward to the last one in half an hour.I saw them all in the original series and the new ones are just as good .
  5. I saw Jerry Lee Lewis at the New Orleans Jazz Festival a few years ago and he was brilliant although he only did about 30 minutes. I couldn't believe many 30 and 40 year olds near us saying they'd no idea who he was!! Re Little Richard there was a reference in the great Times obituary to him being ambisexual and he had a threesome with Buddy Holly and another unnamed person . What a life!!
  6. I knew Simon Calder when I worked for Mirror Group and the Independent was owned by us. I used to ask him many questions and he was most helpful.
  7. What is the legal requirement for receiving a refund?. I have had two theatre bookings cancelled and they both offered us vouchers. We would prefer a money refund. Also a flight booked through Expedia has been cancelled and they said it would take up to 30 days for a refund. When the booking was made the payment was taken on my card instantaneously almost.
  8. So it turns out that Bob Wilson was right and Harold Genders was wrong!!
  9. Tony Garnett has died. Involved in making Kes with Ken Loach among many other great projects like The Price of Coal , Between The Lines and This Life. Also Cathy Come Home and many others.
  10. I love 'proper' cricket but not T20 or the abomination that is 'The Hundred'!!
  11. Wow! What happened to Paley? His wedding was featured in an article in The Times years ago.
  12. I remember him being on the Granada regional news magazine programme in the 60s with Bob Greaves and was Michael Parkinson on the same programme?Great broadcaster!!
  13. Good pub crawl tonight in Manchester . Here for tomorrow's final from London. Crown and Kettle,Marble Arch,Angel, Smithfield Market Tavern then the Castle. I 've lived in London for 27 years and Manchester used to be cheap for beer but Now it is almost as expensive!!Come on Salford!!!!!
  14. When London played at the athletics stadium before, what were the crowds like? I used to go fairly often and I dont recall many 'aspirational types' ( whatever that means)attending .Nearly everyone who I knew and spoke to were exiled Northerners ( like me).
