That was a good job too, all I had to do when a lady came in to try on a pair of shoes was just to lace up her laces. But the boss fired me there, said I got above my job - Chris Bouchillon, Born In Hard Luck

Santa brought me  a copy of 'Blues for Francis', a collection of Francis Wilford Smith's scripts for the radio programmes he did for BBC Radio 3 over many years. In the 1950s he amassed a huge collection of piano blues 78s, which formed the basis for the Magpie blues piano series. His radio programmes covered the piano blues, of course, but also gospel and guitar blues. Recommended.
Somewhere in my cassette drawer are recordings of most of those radio programmes...
