Dangermouse This was lovely to read today. I love Dangermouse because obviously it was hilarious, but also because it reminds me of my grandad who was in his 60’s and laughed at it like a drain.

I’ve had a radio idea fermenting, now thinking about blogging to go hand in hand with it. With that in mind I went on to the official charts website and started to listen to every album that charted in the 90’s in order. Three weeks in, pleasantly surprised by Loop and Jungle Brothers. More thoughts formulated after tea and a bit of work. I will expand once I’ve properly got a plan. One of my best friends from uni is coming d
