Phew, quandary here - four songs into two slots, as I'd like to keep the third for Tuba Skinny. Two are instrumental, both with Adrian Rollini, two are crooning - Fred Rich and Albert Brunies. The two not used this evening will be reserved for next week. Goofus Five after that - there's enough for weeks here now.

Last song - you look at what you will but my eyes are on the kid dancing by door 605 [she's hidden behind the tuba player at the very start but is putting in some dance moves early on], plus the lady in blue and white top who comes by, plus another sitting to our left of the band, two other ladies too. Why? Because they're right into it but the kid is unusual - it's not really the music of her age bracket and yet she's clearly bopping away there. If only yoof could all be doing this.
