    Re: What are you listening to right now?

    I'm crazy about a band called Joe Innes and the Cavalcade. Folk. Particularly 'Fables' which is perfect.

    But also 'Half Gone', 'Moscow'. Review of gig here:...

    Re: Ranking Roger, RIP

    :-( Been off the grid a bit. This is one of my favourite songs ever. Clever, cute, bouncy.

    Hi NMB,

    Yes. A short illness seems to be what they use when they don't really know.

    Ray Sawyer of Dr Hook

    I seemed to have missed this then it came up on a playlist. Can't see it mentioned in this thread.

    Re: Fleetwood Mac

    Well I did get the chance to see the Mac finally, but Christine only played on one song. Glad I did it then though.

    Re: RIP Ray Thomas of the Moody Blues

    Been listening to a lot of Moodies since Ray's death, had all but forgotten this song: The Story in Your Eyes. Fantastic chorus.

    Apparently he's just returned from a tour with the Zombies. Nice tribute from Colin Blunstone.

    Totally agree. I posted about Grant Hart though I realise not many people would know him. He was a great songwriter and a personal friend.

    Re: Wimbledon champ Jana Novotna, R.I.P.

    I'm a huge tennis fan and very sad that Jana's passing merited so little attention in the UK media. She was a Wimbledon champion and only 49. Thanks for mentioning her, NMB.
