About Me
life summary
Musician for 30 years. Usually married to Rebecca, 2 kids and a cat. Life could be much, much worse; things could always be better.
I live for…
My kids
my advice to you
is don't listen to advice. Oh, and just be nice to each other and all the problems of the world can be solved.
50 n.o.

Bat held high I salute then bow
To the mere handful in attendance now;
Not quite as I imagined the occasion or ovation
(Guard down, eyes down, I tamp down another imperfection).

So far: no evidence of Fiery Freddie's flare
Or Geoffrey's jaw-jutting indomitable air;
I scrape each apologetic singleton
My way: one by one by sorry one.

Unadventurous strokes begat not a chance,
Not a lofty six, nor even a third man-wise glance;
So a forest grew by the boundary
'Til you couldn't see the ashen me for trees.

OK. Celebration over, bat back to the crease
To await the next pounding charge, the ball's release:
Slash! Whack! A chance! Do I stand still, amazed
By the umpire's index finger(s) raised?
Or duck! Pray! Leave it! Hope it's wide?
You (who know me best), you decide.

Thanks for dropping in. As you can see from the pic I am quite a sweet guy but I am falling apart at the moment. Help yourself to anything I have two of, well almost anything - I have plenty of spares as you can see.

Thanks again for calling . Check out the links to my favourite people - new ones added all the time. Take care and all the best - Al

Betty thanks a lot for all this, I really appreciate it
Betty no, whenever I remember, I rotate the songs - I noticed that if I change the song order on my page, the play rate is affected, so I thought everyone shoulkd be first up on the serenduoity pages for a week or so at least
Betty (again) I've been awake for nearly 24 hours, please excuse typos
Phil Streets Thanks Al for adding Zeros and Ones to your station and for the kind words. You made my day.

Noel Lorica Thanks for adding me to you playlist. It really is a pleasant surprise. I'm also thankful because it is giving my songs additional hits as I can see on the new daily log. Appreciate it.
Al - Al Stravinsky Just found a moment to put together a little playlist - it's not complete yet, but I love each and every one of these people and their songs.
betty - 37158 Thanks for championing last Dance (you know, that spelling doesn't look right at all...)
Al The playlist is set for random play, so don't worry if you're at no. 10 or whatever, they all come around.
Al And before you ask, Bertie Bassett is a Sheffield lad too
JAWZ Hey this is spooky, came on to see why landlocked was getting so many plays and bumbed into Bertie Bassett - How did you know he was my hero - Jilly
JB bumbed = bumped of course
Jilly Have you heard my latest "L A S"
Jilly PS I put Bertie back, felt sorry that he missed out on his bit of glory

Hi everyone. Please excuse the very English (nay Yorkish) nature of the poem. It's a cricketing metaphor for my life so far - if you're American you just won't get it I'm sorry: cricket is a slow, thoughtful, absorbing, scientific, skillful game beyond compare. And a game can last five (5) days. I prefer football myself (soccer) but cricket worked better.

Thanks for calling in Rich and Ash. That's great company for starters. All downhill from here... ;-)
