As per usual, I'm enjoying my Friday night fix. Cooking dinner, glass of wine in hand and listening to 'Friday Night is Music Night,' on Radio 2. The signature tune hasbn't changed since I was a kid and used to listen to it snuggled up with my mum after my dad had gone to work at his night shift at the Sainsbury's factory in Blackfriars. (Coal fire, gas mantles....Am I painting a picture here?) The subject of this week's interval is Tommy Steele. It's easy to forget how good the boy from Bermondsey really was. If you're missing it, then maybe, (if you're of a certain age,) you may want to listen on the BBC catch-up site.
