Re: Friday Night Is Music Night on BBC4 TV
I gave the first hour or so of the easy listening a go and it wasn't bad, bringing back a few memories.
Not sure I'll be catching the Fairports tonight. Apart from Meet On The Ledge, I can't really say I know any of their stuff. I think they passed me by during my "heavy music" phase.
Last night I caught Sir Tom on the red button from the R2 Hyde Park do last Sunday and he gives a good show. It's refreshing to hear someone with a strong voice, even tho' it's nowhere near it's old timbre. Jessie J is pretty good on the pipes too.
