Friday Night Extra 17.6.16

Tonight we focussed on the music for a relaxing Friday evening. We remembered the career of Henry McCullough, legendary rock guitarist who passed away this week. We also remembered Dave Swarbrick, who had died since my last show. He is described as the most influential fiddle player in British folk music. We also appreciated a track from Blue, a jazz album recorded by Diana Ross in 1971/2 as a follow up to her Lady Sings the Blues soundtrack album. This was not released until 2006 as the label decided they wanted her to follow an R&B direction rather than jazz. It was good to hear that Sir Cliff Richard felt that the ordeal he has been through for the past two years has strengthen his faith. To quote his friend Cindy Kent, “He knows he is loved by God and he knows that God knows the truth. As far as he was concerned, he was safe in the knowledge that he had nothing to prove because nothing had happened. God is truth and we worship him in spirit and truth and, from that point of view, he felt God was with him.” Jonty brought us a story about a sea gull that had turned orange by falling into chicken Tikka Masala. We also heard about robin chicks that has been on a trip from Liverpool to Glastonbury in a nest on the chassis of a trailer. They had been named, John, Paul, George and Ringo. Finally, there was the bicycle thief lassoed by a rancher in Oregan.
