Ah well at the absolute minimum Janice and I will surely give thanks for the improved set-list Pete : thankyou!  And I did indeed nip away - you had a good line of admirers waiting there! - but will be sure to say hi next time.
 
And Steve - yes indeed - delighted if you can use a picture of mine - anytime!

Quote:

 
As busy as a moribund man can be with my latest book of memoirs, I am pleased that Anne Applebaum’s contribution to global political analysis has insisted on making a wreck of my schedule. Not least because she writes with such clarity, a brain-curdling narrative such as her book Gulag (Penguin) is hard to put down. Her efforts are a reminder that women have often led the way when it comes to specifying the poisonous effects of the Soviet Union in its full Stalinist flower. Yevgenia Ginzburg and Nadezhda Mandelstam have found a worthy successor, perhaps they made her advent possible. Anyway, one can safely leave such questions to the scholars of the future. At this rate, at least half of them will be women. As Madame Mao was so keen to remind us, women, too, are capable of anything.

To keep everyone up to date, I did establish contact with Pete, and subsequently provided a number of potential dates in 2019. It's now in his hands!

A new venue for Robb Johnson's folk club (now Railway Roots), new for me anyway, since this was my first time back there since my bus incident.  And what a big pleasure, as always, to see Robb again.  Sadly, he only sang one song to start things off.   But it's a good venue, and the audience was flatteringly attentive.   I had planned to do another not-heard-live-for-ages song, but it was squeezed out by time;  I'll try to make sure it gets an outing at the Pheasantry next week.  Meanwhile, this is what I did (a single set at the end of the evening) --
 
The Man Who Walked Toward The Music (guitar)
History and Geography (g)
Have You Got A Biro I Can Borrow? (g)
Touch Has A Memory (keyboard)
I have To Learn (k)
Sunrise (k)
Stranger in Town (g)
All The Dead Were Strangers (g)
Carnations On The Roof (k)
And Empty Table (k)
A Hill Of Little Shoes (k)
Payday Evening (g)
Thirty Year Man (k)
Beware of the Beautiful Stranger (g)

London again, but this time it's a Sunday:



Pete is pleased to announce a return to Walthamstow Folk's excellent theatre-style venue at Ye Olde Rose and Crown on Hoe Street, E17 4SA, on Sunday March 10th, 2019. He last played the club in 2015.

Further to Pete's timely alert this morning, the Rony Robinson programme is now available on BBC iPlayer:



The conversation begins at the 9m30s mark and continues for 19 minutes, mostly discussing the history of songs including Beware Of The Beautiful Stranger and Black Funk Rex.

Another BBC local radio thingie today for me and Ian Shircore.  It's BBC Radio Sheffield this time, on the Rony Robinson show.   As far as I know it will be just after 1300 BST, and once again I'm expecting it to be live - but I can't promise....
