Change is going to come…

I think two different images will stay with me as I look back at a momentous week. The shortest serving Prime Minister in history Liz Truss lost her seat on Thursday. She left the stage as soon as she could without saying a word. Then there was Andy Murray losing on Centre Court but cheered to the rafters. Sir Andy Murray we will miss you, as for the others…I’ll leave that up to you.


I was chatting to a young, tech savvy, musician friend this week. I said it was going to be a busy week because I was going to release the album on CD. I realised that we were from slightly different generations when he said ‘CD, is that still a thing?’.

Chris Needs – As It Is

Just like Chris’s radio shows ‘Like it is’ will make you laugh and cry and singalong as well. The show is a must for Chris Needs fans but will also leave you feeling uplifted even if you never knew this very special man.

Still 3 weeks to go…

I always find myself conflicted at this time of year. In a few days’ time we will have reached the half way point of the year. That’s the glass half full side of my character. Now comes the conflict., on the other hand from now on…it’s all downhill to Christmas!!!

Creating a bit of a Splash!

We started filming using a watering can before moving on to the buckets of water. It was only when I looked back at the long shots that I could see the relish on ‘my friend’ Ed Thomas’ face as he drenched me and the howls of laughter from Ian Parsons. With friends like Ed and Ian making videos is easy!!!

Jones the Spy.

I’d woken up at around 2am. I reached for my phone, pressed the button and started to drift. I must have been half asleep again when I found myself sitting bolt upright. I thought I had just heard Helena Bonham Carter announce that Agent Garbo’s network of German spies in Britain included an Indian Poet based in Swansea!!!
