No Kate Bush tickets for us this morning. All sold out immediately it seems. Oh well, I shall play that old jazz lament ‘Wutohering Heights’ at Jan’s tonight.

Looking forward to Jan’s bar this Friday 28th with Kenrick Rowe and Alison Rayner.
Big crowd last time – reminded me a little of old Guest Stars days at the Stanhope Arms.
With guest Diane McLoughlin.

Great night last Friday at Jan’s Bar. Great audience, they’ll have to get some more chairs in, front bar was full by 8.20pm.
