A firefight in downtown Morelia

Welcome to Tuesday!

So today we kicked off proceedings in style by looking at a real firefight in Mexico.

Yes, it seems that in Mexico competition for tips is so fierce that for example performers and windshield washers often stake out and defend lucrative street corners.

Guns have even been used in violent clashes over pitches, but last week a firefight quite literally erupted outside a taco restaurant named, El Inferno, or ‘Hell’, in the city of Morelia, west of the capital, Mexico City.

A small strolling band known as MARIACHIS, consisting of trumpeters, guitarists and violinists, set upon a fire-breather, placing him in a headlock before raining down a series of punches on him.

The choice of attacking a fire-breather, was probably not the wisest of ideas since he retaliated by throwing fire at the musicians, who dressed in traditional white shirts and black trousers, and some carrying guitars, were forced to beat a hasty retreat whilst endeavouring to divest themselves of their burning clobber.

One was even spotted rolling on the ground trying to put out the flames.

It’s believed the battle was over the right to perform, and generate tips, at a sought-after spot, but none of the protagonists returned to the fray. 

Nobody was arrested and only the fire-breather had to be treated for burns in hospital.

In the second hour, I was joined as usual by Margaret Mills who told us about an Essex born preacher named Charles Haddon Spurgeon.

It was said that he used to draw such huge crowds of people wanting to hear him preach that special halls often had to be hired.

Apparently he was known widely as the PRINCE OF PREACHERS, as reportedly listeners to his sermons were often left spellbound.

Whether or not you will be equally spellbound, you can listen again here to what Margaret told me today about this man: –

I look forward to the pleasure of your company again next week,
