We are trying to build up a collection of the Woody Allen catalogue. So I was delighted when I found another three of his that I'd not seen.
Are also big fans of romance so the other week we sobbed all the way through The Lake House with Sandra Bullock. Have lent the DVD to producer Dr Strangelove who is also a big weeper. Expect to see his crumpled red-eyed face first thing Monday after he's wept through the weekend, although he did say yesterday morning that he wished it was Christmas, so much so he had Gremlins and Home Alone ready for Friday night.
Whilst in the shop I also had a peruse of the CD shelves in case there was something I missed.
At last I found a Kevin Fowler album containing the track "£ sign" This is a fun tune I heard on my last US road trip and seemed to go down pretty well when I played it yesterday on the show. One of the other tracks on the album was called "Don't Touch my Willie"; this reduced some members of the programme team (there are only the two of us: Strangeo and I) to sniggering adolescents. It is about a first date and a guy’s record collection: Willie being Willie Nelson. OK, you were ahead of me on that one.
Whilst on my way back home I passed one of those “boys shops” that sell computer parts, radio controlled cars and, for me, an aluminium CD carrying case, ideal for transporting the Lester’s Library tracks to and from the studio.
This - in my mind’s eye - is "professional DJ equipment”. I was transported to a life on the road. Heading from one exotic location to another to DJ in front of thousands of excited young people at clubs festivals and raves. I am Fat Boy Fat. I am DJ Ludicrous. I am Lethal Drizzle!
I trudged home knowing after a couple of days the box will be full of odd bits of paper, the odd CD and sweet wrappers. Hey, I can dream.
See you in Ibiza!
