An Inspector Calls by J.B. Priestley

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An Inspector Calls (Classic Radio Theatre): Amazon.co.uk: Priestley, J.B.,  Barber, Frances, Full Cast, Jones, Toby: 9781408467244: Books

Yesterday I was on a steam paddler down the Nile, this morning I was in the drawing room of a respectable industrial family in J B Priestly’s play An Inspector Calls – listening to what was a family dinner party, turn into a murder inquiry and a judgement on the families morals and behaviour- competently led by a certain Inspector…. The BBC Classic Radio Theatre production, starring Sam Alexander, Frances Barber, David Calder, Morven Christie and Toby Jones was the version I listened to – highly recommend it.

Funky Blue gigging again. 💙

‘…if you love what you’re doing, you can’t stop. It’s obsessive.’

Labrinth.

Sunday 25th October saw Funky Blue back on their first gig since Lockdown in March. Held at the Grove Theatre in Eastbourne, East Sussex in front of an invited audience this intimate gig showed that nothing had been lost in Lockdown.

Many of us have missed live music in 2020 and this felt like a small step in a positive direction. The venue felt safe to be in with all Covid measures in place. Thank you Grove Theatre Eastbourne.

Have a look at the night here…

War of the Worlds by Jeff Wayne. (Progressive Rock)

Would normally spend Good Friday listening to the Jesus Christ Super Star album. Twenty/twenty Good Friday I listened to Jeff Wayne’s 1978 original War of the Worlds.

War of the Worlds Album Cover

This original version included Richard Burton as narrator (journalist). Also Justin Hayward, David Essex (artillery man), Phil Lynott (Parson Nathanial) Julie Covington (Beth).

Give it a go if you don’t know it. I was blown away!
