Christmas Songs: Er, don't know why we're in italics. Hang on. That's better. I only mention Christmas songs 'cos The Adulescents UK's version of Mary's Boy Child, entitled Mary, has just come on my iPod and I wondered if I should skip it or not. I didn't. I was busy feeling sorry for myself for having a great job. A great song is for life not just Christmas is my thinking. It also reminded me that on Saturday night as part of the drunken Springsteen singalong in the pubs of Wembley we did give his version of Santa Claus Is Coming To Town the full treatment with not a hint of 'is it OK to sing this' from anyone. Admittedly it's not a great song, fun though and it was definitely a moment.
Got the door open 'cos, although not the phew what a scorcher we were promised it's pleasant enough but now I'm overrun (overflown?) with fat flies and some twonk would appear to burning every piece of plastic in Donny out there!
I was joined on today's show by Susan Forbes from Artfelt and Doncaster College students Lauren Taylor and Roberta Brackenbury. The amount Susan has going on connected with all forms of art in and around Doncaster is phenomenal and I'd never fit it all in here. I suggest visiting http://www.susanforbes.co.uk/ or find her on Facebook. Lauren and Roberta have just finished their courses at the Hub and are currently part of The Last Picture Show at the college demonstrating the students work. Finishes on Friday people so look sharp.
OK I'm off now to shout at a neighbour about pollution and sound all friends of the Earth.
