Re: Leonard Cohen & Kate Bush?

very droll, John the Shorts ;-) --------- ...Musician Jim Simmons signed up to join a chorus of 1,000 ukulele players at the Royal Albert Hall for the BBC Proms on Tuesday night. He reveals how he got in shape for the gig - and whether it sounded any good... http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment...

Re: cliff richard - and the shadows

My parents both loved the Shadows (although my dad had little time for Cliff) my opinion great musicians, music pretty good at the time but never progressed beyond late 50's early 60's R&R

Re: Tom Waits

I've been a fan of Tom for nearly as long as I've been a fan of Len and have most everything - a good starting position (imo) for LC fans would be either "Nighthawks at the Diner" or "Swordfish Trombones" both of which stand out for me

Re: 10th to 14th Sept: BARMOUTH walking weekend, essential info

Diane I'm still around just not posting much - looks like I've got some trips to Sheffield, Leeds and Taunton coming up soon - anyone from those parts of the world about here? I've also promised ...

Re: Stopping the Spam

Would it be worthwhile requiring the first 10 or so posts by an individual to be approved by a moderator rather than having so many porn links posted and then deleted?

Ukulele Orchestra becoming too popular - they should have called it a day after Anarchy in the Ukulele

Re: Cardiff Wales 8 November

This will be another great meet-up!! The CIA is not the best venue in Cardiff, a functional building rather than a theatre, but obviously chosen for its size in being able to accommodate more people, and if you have a reasonable seat it really won't matter. I have seen a few concerts there, mostly ...
