Why ever not, Anon ? Lilith's been busy and is just keeping a presence is all.

Lilith said...

You may say that anon, I couldn't possibly comment.

Lilith said...

Anon can't even think up a name, let alone work out how to blog so I don't really feel I have to explain my blog to him/her if they can't keep up.

Your chivalry is touching E-K. And I have been lucky on unpleasant comments. Anon is my first!

I knew the Grateful Dead would spark controversy!

I asked L what might be in her desert islands. L is very generous because answering is quite self revealing, and how else could an answer be framed? Sheet music?

Anon is probably someone I was rude to on Guido. As I am regularly rude on Guido I think I have had a pretty fortunate run!

Hmmm. HG. Having difficulty with the full list..how to choose..I know it will come to me.

Hiya Lilith,

I can't get less than a dozen or so on my list, which would mean that when I'm famous, they'll have to have part one and two on consecutive Fridays!

The best programme Roy Plomley ever recorded was when Don McCullin, the war photographer was choosing his records.

Don McCullin's eloquence and sincerity shone through the entire programme, and because Plomley was an experienced interviewer, he hardly said a word.

It was a master class case of superb broadcasting.

Thanks for the clip on Gratefull Dead - I have always muddled them up with Soft Machine, so now I know!

Lilith said...

So glad I cleared that one up for you Scrobs!

Scroblene - did you ever try DANCING to Soft Machine? Not possible. Heads up the arse music, a form since perfected by the ghastly Robert Fripp and a legion of English public schoolboys(I know - I was one) who thought they were clever :-)

However, dancing to the Dead is another matter altogether ... indeed, oft IMPOSSIBLE, unless ... dead

(However, I do love Robert Wyatt)

By "impossible" I, of course, mean "impossible NOT to" ! I plead the early hour, and the difficulty of keyboarding with a dog's chin on your mouse wrist....
