Back at Stretton House in Brighton UK, I finally found some time to edit Rutter Radio Pt.2, David’s show for Brighton Festival Radio. Topic of that day (dated early into that next millenium) was Wrong Songs or, Right Songs by the Wrong Guy. Being a fan of odd covers myself I think this show is great!
David tells a lot of stories, and you’d better believe they are true. In a loop or at random, fascinating stories they are. Teacher, Sushi Chef, World Traveler, Micro Politician, Romantic, Big Hearted Fellow. And a pretty good Radio Jock as well!
Coming back at from London’s Notting Hill Carnival I find a crate full of Booktunes material, selected by my Stretton House Family. Apart from the pile of books, there are some great Coltrane records David was planning to bring to the charity shop, plus a Thomas Hardy poem that inspired Christy Moore. Good to be back!
Notting Hill Carnival 2011 was fabulous: Good food & massive sounds to share with 1 million people and some of my bestest friends: a twin, a skater, a hipster, a reggae jock, a jungle jock, their girls and an american girl. Loads of fun, no riots.
One thing we all missed during the Carnival – in fact hole EU summer 2011 – is Sunshine. That must be the reason I found David reminiscing about his 90’s visits to Hawaii. Listening to a tape of a BBC radio show where he was invited as a Hawaiian music expert did really bring some sunshine into the Stretton Sitting Room.
