Sad news -

It has just reminded me how much I enjoyed the quirky 'Innes Book of Records' programme - I wonder of Youtube can furnish any episodes ?

I loved the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band...

Which reminds me, Viv Stanshall & Sir Henry Rawlinson of Rawlinson's End... (and Scrotum, his wrinkled old retainer)

Occasionally play the Rutles album. Each time I’m amazed how well he captured the atmosphere of the Fab Four.

Prrrrriceless!!! of course, the pitch has now changed from the one where they started to er ....

Ambling and babies....snigger

But apart from the Bonzos, Mr Apollo etc etc there's always .....as much imagination as a caravan site.....

Priceless! I really am going to have to spend an afternoon glued to youTube.
Here's a thing though, and I might be wrong.... why can't we in the UK download youTube videos where as elsewhere in the world, people can?

Is that true ? Hmmm... quite a limitation. Would be nice to save stuff for posterity.
Maybe some of the more IT-savvy members can comment.

Course you're going to tell me what YTD is aren't you!

Bedford is rather dull but its live music scene is growing - this is good.
