    Season 568: Same procedure as last year?

    Sorry, I missed your Season, Del. This was on the back burner, but I hope fits here just as well. Featuring not one but two Andalusian cadences, modulation to the relative 4th & back, augmented chords - who says rockabilly's simple? :-D

    SEASON 556- 1972

    I was at that show, Oct 29, 1972, Empire Pool, Wembley (now renamed as Wembley Arena, but the seating's still laid out like it's a swimming pool). I remember it well. The Dolls were supporting the Faces. It's fair to say, it wasn't exactly their audience. :)

    Season 566 - Seasonal Songs

    Hank Garland is one of my favourite guitar players. This is another Christmas classic he featured on. I'm giving him co-writing credit, even if the publishers did not.

    In a bout of idle curiosity, I looked up the meaning of 'turpitude' in the OED. "Well if that's 'turpitude'," I wondered. "Then what is the difference between 'turpitude' and 'moral turpitude'?" Turns out that 'moral turpitude' - outraging social mores - is a concept peculiar to US immigration...

    SOTU 553 International Day Calendar

    Herbivores fall into two basic categories: grazers (like sheep); or browsers (like goats). White (wide-mouthed) rhinos are grazers. Black rhinos are browsers. It's International Rhino Day, folks!

    SOTU 553 International Day Calendar

    (UK radio personality)Danny Baker pointed out a few years back that ITLAP Day should in fairness really be entitled "International Talk Like Robert Newton Day" as it's his OTT performance as Long John Silver in Disney's 1950 production of Treasure Island that everyone imitates when they talk...
