Last night I decided to listen to the DIGITAL RADIO my flatmate has recently installed in our kitchen! By install I mean “plugged in”, for all you technophobes. Of course I take advantage of this digital age like no man’s biz, and tuned straight into BBC Radio 2. Gosh! It was GRATE! Has Radio 2 ALWAYS been grate?? I feel like such a fool for sticking to BBC LDN (with the occasional switches to Magic and Gaydar Radio). Yesterday I listened to a show about folk music – the best bit was a song called Mediocrity U.K (right on!!) which featured the lyrics (nb from memory, possibly IMPROVED):

Staring at the magazine rack/ who would have thought/ that silicone/ could save Iraq

RIGHT ON!! Then after this came a song which told the story of a father and son team of petrol station robbers, who nearly got caught, but didn’t… but it was close! (Someone hiding in the gents had rung the FILTH on his mobly phone halfway through the raid, you see)! Folk music… is brilliant! I shall be listening to the Folk Show again! Checking the BBCR2 website, I think I was listening to Mike Harding, who is a big BEARD with an accordian. Wonderful stuff. Folk is THE WAY TO GO! I felt even stronger in my opinion after listening to a session by Feist on the Maconie show afterwards, which just felt like watered down pish. Feist have been “bigged up” a little, but I can’t say I was enthused. Goethe would have rolled in his grave, yes, ha ha, ha ha indeed.
