I will only go if I am greeted at the door by BBC's Nick Robinson (in the only post-revolution job he is worthy of doing), and this beautiful Phil Silvers tune is playing in the lobby:

If such delights had been available in Coventry in the early 80s, I'm sure Jerry Dammers wouldn't have felt the need to write this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZ2oXzrnti4

As SoTW's Warwickshire correspondent I'll have to check it out sometime. (I'll be dressed as Duane Doberman for the visit).

That's a very good find Jamie. Ooh ooh!

Talking of which, here's Rupert Ritzik, with one of those great rock n roll sax breaks, played by god knows whom (but I bet Johnny Poole does)

Sorry, you've lost the bet, Norman. But I think it's a more enjoyable record than his LP "Love Songs from a Cop"

I thought you'd say that it was by "Excused Boots" Randolph, John.
