Hello and welcome once more. So, last weekend saw my first appearance of the new season on BBC 5Live’s Fighting Talk. Other than the requisite sporting issues covered other subject areas mentioned during broadcast included Dadaism, botany and the filmic output of Danny DeVito so one would wager something for everyone there hopefully. If you so wish you can listen to the episode here.

Next week more music and chat than you could shake a stick at, a musical stick if you will, would that be a baton? Mayhap, mayhap. By way of a further teaser, some exciting book news coming soon too, it really is all go you know. Be well.
