The names Miller, Glen Miller...

Yes apart from Glen playing Bond (long overdue), what songs would make good Bond Themes.

  1. ...and then they would say, "Have you brought your trombone?" and collapse with laughter. A childhood ruined by the fear of having my name ridiculed. These days you would get counselling.

  2. Previously on the Blog....
    I was reminded of going to see Mr Spedding in Oct 1977 at St Andrew's Uni. He was supported by The Only Ones.
    This was a highlight:

    Came across him many years later here in Rio on one of Bryan Ferry's tours.

    1. I like him. He plays really simply but effectively. It was always unlikely he'd play Paisley's Bungalow Bar. His solo on this is one of my favourites.

    3. I know what you're thinking, Rok. You're thinking "did she get six shouts or only five?" Now to tell you the truth I forgot myself in all this excitement. But being this is a tea time theme show, the most popular radio programme in Scotland and will make you real famous if you get on, you've got to ask yourself a question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ye, Rok?

      Mollie found a nice fresh roadkill buck roe deer on our walk today so we took it home and butchered it. Well, that's the freezer full again - theres a lot of meat in a deer, it is low fat and organic, and it would be a horrible shame to waste it. She was very keen on her special treat.... a nice bone. I expect there may be a little bit more going her way shortly!

    5. But that's a joke right?
      That's why I thought he was you or Mac.

    6. I can see why you might think so. I think his name (get DC to check it) is Rob Kay. It's amazing he's survived to this age.

    2. Or there's that Paul Simon song which might be better.

      Songs Paul Simon might be singing at the moment could be a theme in itself.
