A simply brilliant evening

Well the evening was as good if not better than I expected.

Diana Krall was her usual fabulous self, in my opinion she is one of the best pianist/vocalist around at the moment.

The support act was the saxaphonist Yolanda Brown who I had never heard of but she was very good indeed. Very similar to Candy Dulfer.

A lovely evening thoroughly enjoyed.

I know this has already been mentioned on the 'Call for support' blog but please look at Janes blog and send her your best wishes and remember her and her family in your thoughts and prayers.

Jane is one of the most courageous people I know and a perusal of her blog will show so please please send her your best wishes.

Thank you

Ray Moore

It does not seem possible but it is twenty years since the legendry broadcaster Ray Moore passed away.

To call him a DJ is an understatement he was the ultimate broadcaster and his sense of humour and play on words was fantastic. For examble when the Americans launched the space shuttle he referred to it as the 'space shuffle' It is not often that I can say this but the man was an absolute genius. Waking up and hearing him on Breakfast Special on Radio 2 made certain that every day was a good day.

Sadly I do not think that any recordings of his radio broadcasts exist but his TV interview with Terry Wogan is on You Tube.

Sadly as I say Ray passed away 20 years ago with throat cancer.

A fabulous night!

Well it certainly will be.

My daughter has given me an early birthday present. Tickets to see the fantastic Diana Krall in concert at the Royal Albert Hall on October 28th. I am counting the days and hours already so you can assume that I am very much looking forward to it!

Sad News

I saw the consultant at Maidstone Hospital yesterday.

Unfortunately the treatment with Ofatumumab has done no more than slow down the growth of the cancer. As it is only a trial drug they can offer no more treatment with it and the consultant told me that the future looked bleak, possibly I have no more than a couple of months.

To say I feel gutted and devestated is an understatement.
