Song 10

This was my song for Kathryn. I never wrote her a proper song for her last birthday and this is a starter for ten ! It follows our Italian holiday when my dress style was not up to the natives beautiful clothing. Still - its what she's got. The Sunshine reference is about her recent award in Morecambe for services to Entertainment. Love her as always xxxx

Song 9

So it's getting dark, the wind is strong, the rain is coming in and I'm moving soon into the zone of my friends the other side of the International Date Line - Sydney at 11, Sendai at 12, Hong Kong at 1 (8 am their time each time).

Song 7

Spent a good deal of the last hour starting to process music so it can be listened to. This will get easier. What will it feel like as it gets dark? who knows...

Song 6

WOW - that was a panic - almost out of time by the time it got to 6pm. Had to go down to get a heater and some gaffer tape and check that security know that I am up here! All good and a motivational accordion blues written for my daughter and her friend in Belfast. Hooray.  The next one is going to be a comic limeric style featuring animals - send me ideas !

Song 3

A chat with Tim from Radio Lancs will be played tomorrow morning. He gave me 3 ideas for a song and a line for the refrain... and so grew song 3. It turned into a love song for Kathryn .... (see below)

The Tower

I just got back from a trip to visit Pete at the top of Bowland Tower. It's so bleak up there - wind whistling through and around, rain drizzling down the windows and dead flies all over the window sills. I couldn't do a night in there like Pete is - it's really spooky...
