Remember the fear of having to read in front of your English class at school. Here's a top tip for all you youngsters out there, if you want to avoid being picked on - it use to work for me - when the teacher is looking for someone else to read - look intently at the book as if your really into the story. Of all my school years I was only asked to read about 3 times -that was for Macbeth, the part - King Duncan - go figure eh? somethings you just can't fight.
Sorry it's just another sketch this week.

I got my love of music from my Dad - when I was very young he bought me my first Beatles, Rolling Stones, Dylan and Paul Simon LP's. He'd play his jazz albums at full volume when my Mum was out (still does) Basie, Ellington, Sinatra and Stan Kenton where my favourites. Then I discovered the NME and the John Peel Show, my brother and I would listen to the Peel radio at night on these big headphones taping our fave songs - Orange Juice, Josef K and Aztec Camera where mine - the Sound of Young Scotland.
