Hi all again. Not a bad summer is it? Not too hot. No rain to speak of.. and one of my broken bass bins (now repaired) comes back tomorrow by courier hopefully.That's such a weight off, as I've got some biggies coming up and I need the extra oomph!
I'm doing lots of gigs right now of either weddings or foreign students. I've had to resort to taking in paper and pen, as the other week a Russian 13 year old asked me for "leeki par-nmm" Eh? 5 times he tried to get the message accross and you've got to remember that I'm standing in a loud environment at the best of times, so it's a delicate balancing act trying to hear them without getting your ear drum shattered from the requestee shouting in it. Turned out it was "Linkin' Park - Numb". What do you mean you've never heard of it? Oh you're a radio 2 listener are you? Well confession time...I do Chris moyles in the morning (only in the biblical sense) and Number 2 there after as it's more random and just brilliant for picking up back catalogue tunes. Refreshingly, You never quite know what you're going to hear. How many stations can you say that about? Not many commercial ones that's for shure.- ooops, that's "shure" the microphone company. I thought that was wrong.
That reminds me. I must get the arial replaced on our old but gorgeous VW golf. I love her to bit's. She drives like a dream (1.8 CL) but only picks up BBC radio Sussex on the inherited stereo (won't play cd's either) unit. Now there's a radio station! Every tune a thousand years old guaranteed! I'm going out of my mind. We've got an ipod, but with all the DJ business I can never get round to putting any more then the 300 odd songs on it already. Ipod owners will know that this is an obsticle that must be confronted in order not to get bored with your all time favourite songs and literally lose the will to live any more. For without those to fall back on; what is the point of it all?
Have a great weekend and think of me working my nuts off!
Enjoy now some classic Benny:here
