It was an experience that myself, Mike Jones and Bob Simpson will never forget. Awe-inspiring, moving, heartfelt, and now you have the opportunity to share with us that magical performance once more as it has been recorded and added to the Phoenix archives.

Brentwood Gazette with Simon

Our regular weekly visit from the “Brentwood Gazette” and Simon makes his debut on the Keith Rogers Drive Show. He had appeared on the show when Mike was presenting it and wasn’t sure what was in store for him with yours truly. He needn’t have worried, I handled him with kid gloves. 🙂


“Don’t look now” at the Queens Theatre
