Easter is almost upon us, and despite the period moving about as normal, its has the joy of schools on breaks and lovely Choccie eggs to stimulate all.
In the show I tried not to drop any subtle hints for Easter eggs, as that’s not very professional…ish. Mix bag of waffle was had by my good self, where we spoke about the wonderful news of the inclusion ‘LOL’ to the Oxford English dictionary. The who’ha around Prince William decision not to wear a wedding band.
But my big topic of waffle, was how have we become so addicted to the use of mobiles that when we are without one, we worry if we can cope. Earlier this week my mobile phone developed a fault and let me ‘phoneless’ for whole 3 days and surprise of all surprises I survived and felt good about being all retro.

Lykke Li – O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire
A young and enigmatic Swedish songwriter with breathless vocals and a quirky belief in the avante garde. The Northern Lights were almost certainly sparkling on Lykke Li when she produced her first record. She is purer than virgin snow and is considered by the NME to be the ‘anti-Duffy.
