Subject: RE: Tom Bliss Article -So long and thanks
Mark Steel's In Town is currently being broadcast on R4 (18.30 - 1900). Tonight, it's Lewes and MS has concluded already that its residents are barking.
No-one's doubting that things are reasonably rosy at the place where the gastropods go (whatever pub it's in now). That's not the point. It's what goes down in that wicked world outside, throughout the the length and breadth of this land that Tom Bliss is talking about.

I was contemplating posting something on the lines of what Dick has just done, but I just knew Bryan Snail would object that I don't go round gigging and I don't run a venue either. Still, it's surely indisputable that, even now, I get to considerably more venues than he does, and that lots more current performers relate their experiences to me than they do to him. What, after all, wouod be the point of telling him? He always knows better than you . . .
