  1. Yes, tonight 26th September 2020 is prominently marked in my calendar as the 41st Anniversary at the 100 Club. Even though the last few months have had us surviving via online events it is none the less a fantastic achievement. Congrats to Ady and all involved, both past and present. Such a shame that we can't be there tonight, but I felt obliged not to let the occasion pass unmarked. A bit sad that by now I should have been pressing my strides and polishing my Royals in preparation for what surely would have been a rammed Blue Posts, buzzing with anticipation of what awaited aroun
  2. I've not experienced that in supermarkets John, though I do agree that shop staff do seem to consider that any rules on social distancing don't apply to them. Is it any coincidence too that the few people that don't wear masks for, whatever reason, also seem to be the ones that want to get close and brush past almost as though they have a point to prove? As far as my mother is concerned, please don't concern yourself. Her care, safety and well being are paramount to us and the actions we have agreed upon are borne of necessity. It's not a subject for debate. - Kev
  3. Too right I would. My kids and their partners are front line NHS staff. The least rise in the spread of Covid is a direct threat to their well being. My brother is still recovering from open heart surgery last November. His chest wound refuses to heal and he is extremely vulnerable to infection. He is usually my dear old Mum's carer as she is 90 and suffers from dementia. She is therefore now in a care home. I'm driving up to Northampton to visit her on Thursday. It's the first time it's been allowed. Maybe the last if people refuse to adhere to the guidelines and the 'R' rate rises.
  4. Really? Because some people decide to throw caution to the wind and disregard the guidelines, the rest of us should stay in?! I think not.
  5. Good question. There's no way I'm scrolling through that list again without some prices to grab my interest. - Kev
  6. An interesting and enjoyable Part 1. Well put together and I've set a reminder for the rest of the series despite it clashing with one of my regular views. Random thoughts: Martha Reeves nearly burst into song during her tour of the Snakepit, phew. Mavis Staples is a very nice lady. The Four Hi's...Heartbreak River was an old gospel tune. There's nothing to do in Muscle Shoals except mess about with music. Looking forward to parts 2 and 3. - Kev
  7. Easy one for me, it has to be Betty. Unlike others I don't like both versions. The Sharon Jones is a messy arrangement and for my money would be left to languish in the 10cents bin. - Kev
  8. I don't get it. Are they for sticking needles in? - Kev
  9. So what sort of prices were you expecting on these? - Kev
  10. Steve, can you hold the Toilet Brush for me, but only if there's no marks or ring wear. Thanks, Kev.
  11. Titles and artists might help. There could be an awful lot of people that are unaware of the numbers. I certainly am not and there's no way I'm trawling through my boxes to check. On the other hand I would know instantly if I had such and such by so and so. Just a thought. - Kev
  12. Thanks for reading Ady. Yep tickets is a good idea and I don't know why I didn't think of it until I'd already posted and then read Jayne's post above. Good luck with whatever decisions you have to make, I don't envy you! - Kev
  13. Happy Birthday Dave! Best wishes from Pam and myself. Let's hope we meet up soon. - Kev
  14. Yeah, I could really do with another day off.
  15. "Really good for the scene..."? Not in my opinion. People with an original are likely to start dropping it from their playlists as the wannabes start playing it at their little nights. Same goes for hell of a lot of good tunes lately. Save up for an original or travel to hear someone who plays it. That's what's good for the scene. - Kev
  16. I guess they're too busy Len. Both of my kids and their partners are NHS workers and I'm proud of each and every one of them. I'm keeping out of the way - it's far too dodgy out there for me. I do agree though, t would be nice to hear from some on the 'front line', however briefly. - Kev

    Thanks Steve, once again this is really appreciated mate. - Kev
  18. Well done Kenny. You're still spoken of with affection at the 100 Club mate. Here's hoping your health stabilises and even improves. - Kev
  19. Apologies if this is a bit long, but I was bored. Over the years there have been a number of similar threads on here, which I've always avoided as I liked to keep my work and social lives separate. Those who know me well might know where I worked but I've never sought to either hide or broadcast it. No one has any idea of the specifics. What prompts me to respond this time is a moment from a Weekender I attended last year. I heard a raised voice announcing "yeah, he used to work at Blahdy Blah", and then a louder response saying exactly the same. Why? Was I not to be trusted? Did people n

    Well that's a bit soul destroying Steve. Thanks anyway for trying and for all your work so far. Fingers crossed and all that. - Kev
  21. Yep, that is good news. But I wonder if the figure of 18,000 ventilators needed, includes the number required to replace those recently removed from the ambulance fleet and redesignated for hospital use.
  22. A mate of mine has been in hospital battling Cancer for months. He's in a bad way but finally got accepted for some new T-Cell treatment which is still under trial, and was taken to Guys Hospital in London. Once Corona Virus hit, his wife Margaret was given the option of staying with him or going home, as no visiting would be allowed. She stayed. Untill he tested positive for Corona Virus yesterday, which he must have contracted in the hospital. He was immediately wheeled off to another part of the hospital and she was left to collect her things together and go home. No test for her, wh

    Thanks for the wishes Russ. Hope you and Marie are surviving ok in Gib. Glad you enjoyed JOEL Maslin's set, and yes I told you the 100 Club was something special! It's an open invite anytime you can make it mate, a few days at ours, a play on the decks and a chauffeured drive to and from the 100 Club Niter. Perfect. - Kev

    Damn, I forgot about that! Hopefully it'll appear on something other than F'book before the weekend is over. Until then I'll re-listen to the previous sets, plus I'm having a party on Saturday afternoon. The neighbours don't know it yet but they're gonna get blasted with 2000 Watts of 6T's and a rendition of "Happy Birthday to me". If they end up dancing on their doorsteps it'll be a bonus. Oh, 68 btw and a good few niters left in me yet! - Kev
