On The Smiths

Knocked another one out.

Back To The Old House (Morrissey/Marr – 1984).

Better with headphones.

On The Beatles (part 2)

Hello again pop pickers,

Decided I should record a new song every couple of weeks. Two a month, if you like. No fuss, nothing too elaborate, just knock one out inside three hours, ahem.

Another Beatles track, this time the beautiful Lennon ballad Julia, an ode to his mother who was killed by a hit-and-run when John was 16.

On The Beatles

Yesterday I saw Eight Days A Week, Ron Howard’s Beatles film (“a timeless tale” – Saul Wordsworth).

Today – and in homage – I have recorded my own version of I’m Only Sleeping from the Revolver album (track three as it goes).

Much love/many gloves.

On promoting your book

Books, eh? So many published, so few read. Trying to get noticed is the name of the game (I should know, I’ve played it. Let’s call it a draw to date).

All will be explained shortly, but here’s a picture of my dad hard at work in our sitting room in 1986.

On being Alan Stoob

Hello.

I am Alan Stoob.

Perhaps you knew this already.

Perhaps you didn’t.

Perhaps you’ve no idea what I’m talking about.

Alan Stoob is a website, a Twitter account, a book and (if the planets align) a film.

I have kept my name hidden for three years but on the eve of publication and with Stoob’s cover already blown I’m officially outing myself.

Alan is Britain’s Premier Nazi Hunterâ„¢.

This is the story of Alan.

On yodelling at a recent wedding

Bonjour.

Ca va?

Good.

Recently an old university friend (Tom) and I sang at the wedding of an old university friend (Kev). An old university friend (George) filmed it and created the following short. They’re all doctors but that’s irrelevant.

Wonderful occasion it was.

Here’s the film.

On Lance Armstrong and cycling in London

Hello hello do come in.

Lately I’ve become obsessed with this footage of the Tour de France. The video features Lance Armstrong and Marco Pantani battling for supremacy on Mont Ventoux, the mountain where Britain’s Tommy Simpson died of a heart attack in 1967.

Below it you will find a video of your truly on said mountain…

On Jimmy Saville

In all my days listening to BBC Radio 4 I’ve never once heard a newsreader doing an impression of the recently deceased.

Until Saturday.
