winston: A publicist (Rey Roldan) once tried to sell me on this 16-yo singer named Britney. It wasn't my thing --how wrongish I felt later!
He also repped Kirsty MacColl's "Galore", Velvel Kinks reissues and more. His accounts of journalists' bad-behavior / rudeness are legendarily hilarious.

I feel like my soul is being healed. To paraphrase Woody Guthrie: this show kills fascists.

The vendor guy had a ton of his own so so jewelry and some other "vintage" stuff that was mostly crappy glass or brass and there this ring was...the onoy reason I got it at the time was that it has an open cuff ring and I have problems finding rings that fit my knuckles and I loved the look of it...no idea it was PC. Brought it in and the logo was in fact on the inside...

True dat re MG, Sheila:) Sidenote. had a sizeable collection of Pierre Cardin costume jewelry from 60s/70s - modern/abstract pendant necklaces - great stuff. Was trying to sell it many moons ago but basically it ha not yet returned to vogue and was basically told by a costume jewelry dealer of noteo to"wait till he dies." Well I waited, and waited, and waited. RIP, PC.

I have a copy of I think the Journal of Contemporary Fiction's special issue devoted to Romanian writers. Apparently, under the Ceausescues, dissident writers or those suspected of it would be called into a govt. bldg. for a meeting with a specific colonel. They would be asked to wait in an antechamber and would end up waiting for hours. Finally, they'd be told the colonel could not see them.

But the trick is the bench they waited on was sitting on some radioactive material, strontium-90 as I recall, but I'm not positive. So if it six months the writer was still alive, they'd be called in for another appointment ...

I think it was Elena Ceausescu who oversaw this particular cultural act.

@Monica: I know a bunch of Romanian people from different origins, looks like a very divided country. Older landed families that were kicked out, those who did well during the Ceausescu year, those that did well after, those that did well in none of the above, and then of course the Roma. Complicated. There are many Romanian people in France, for some reason French was encouraged in schools

The bedroom is shared cat space. The front room is contested territory, mainly claimed by Lulu but with some intense Callipygian incursions. K8, the dog, and I survive on the margins, subsisting on crumbs of affection from our lovely masters.

@Chris M: Until literally this second I never made the connection re the shared surname of X-Ray and the Ploughman Poet and obviously shared Scots/N.I. background!

Loved that great rapport you had with Joan as Police Woman, a show that if your listeners missed should be revisited. @djsheilab

@Chris M: I still get spam from K.G.'s email account to this day. This is annoying, but having to flag his account as spam from now on was downright painful
  5:52pm Chris M:

Bummer @Fred, spam is tough to turn off!

thoroughly enjoy your show every week, & you amaze me with your worldwide selection. On Friday just gone your record of the week by Ruby Johnson is an awesome choice, but truthfully for the B-side "weak spot" which is far superior. if you haven't had the opportunity to flip it, then you must & if you agree then please play it next week on your show - as it so deserves to be heard - keep up the great work _ yours Martin t/a CircularsounD (UK)
