In My Own Words:
Hi there. Although my main occupation is as a Train Driver with East Coast Main Line, I've been involved with entertainment for most of my life. I was an organist in the northern Working Men's Clubs during the 1970s and for 27 years, I was involved as a freelance with BBC Local Radio. These days, my musical talents are utilised as a Church Organist in Milton Keynes. I like to think that my reviews… Read more

Interests
My main interest is music but I also have an interest in football (Leeds United) and most other sports. My wife and I enjoy eating out in good restaurants and having fun with our grandchildren.

Is It Really Too Much To Ask?: The World According&hellip by Jeremy Clarkson
4.0 out of 5 stars Arise, Sir Jeremy!, 7 Aug 2014
This book is a collection of articles that Jeremy wrote for the Sunday Times...and that's an important point. Although it was inevitable that they would eventually find their way into a book, that was not their prime purpose. So unlike the author of a 'normal' book, a journalist making contributions to a newspaper works under certain restrictions. For a start, the articles have to be of a predetermined length. They also have to be done to a deadline. But most of all, they have to reflect the political position of the owner of newspaper in question, in this case, one Rupert Murdoch. Now, on the face of it, Jeremy would appear to be perfectly placed to provide such material. The persona that… Read more
Angels Sing - Christmas In Ireland ~ Libera

So, the long-awaited CD and DVD of Libera's Christmas concert recorded live at Armagh Cathedral has arrived. And, I am sure, the first question to be asked by those who purchased their Christmas album of two years ago must be "As many of the songs are already featured on the previous CD, is it worth purchasing this album?"

The answer is a resounding "YES!" Quite apart from the handful of songs that do not appear on their earlier offering (more about them later!), there is the unmistakable atmosphere that you experience at a Libera concert. The only thing missing in that respect is the audience reaction, which has either been skilfully edited out or maybe these CD tracks were… Read more
Angels Sing - Christmas In Ireland [DVD] [2013] [N&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Libera
13 of 13 people found the following review helpful
A big problem with DVDs - in fact, with television in general - is that it is very difficult to capture the atmosphere of an occasion. Oh yes, you can point a camera at a performer and they can sing to perfection but you rarely get the same 'feel' that the attending audience experiences. Now, as one who was more than a little disappointed at not being able to attend this concert in August due to the short notice of the publicity, I was hoping that this would be something special capturing the spirit of the occasion and not failing as so many 'live' videos do.

I need not have worried. This DVD is nothing short of brilliant, not only capturing the atmosphere but even enhancing it… Read more
