Looking Forward To Ladies Night

by Russell Turner - 15:13 on 02 March 2017

My malady lifted in time for me to distribute the latest edition of Chatterbox. Praise is already flooding in, although circulation remains down after the loss of two outlets. We’ll claw back the numbers somehow.

The news isn’t all good, however. The loud barking that echoes around The Rural Retreat is testament to the fact that poor Matchgirl is the latest recipient of The City Limits Virus – something she’s keen to shake off before her next Shetland jaunt because colds and pressurised aircraft cabins don’t mix well. And then there’s an even more jaunty jaunt, less than a week after her return, when The Athletic One joins a running camp in the Algarve. Peak fitness will be useful.

The virus is a powerful one. Keith discovered his capo today in the guitar case he checked half-a-dozen times during the panicked search before the Jacko’s gig. He must be feeling better, for a very rare City Limits Rehearsal has been mooted, although a date has yet to be set. A few new songs would help freshen up the set ahead of a Ladies Night we’ve been booked to entertain next month in Elgin. Whether our line-up could do justice to Kool and the Gang is unlikely.

More music news involves Anderson, Rabin and Wakeman, whose UK tour begins in Cardiff in ten days’ time. Despite buying my Glasgow ticket several months ago, according to an email alert it was only today that it was posted out. It’s been (and still is) a nervous wait; the Edinburgh tickets were received last year. They’ll be worth the wait.
