The Romans



‘Hooked On Classics’ – Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

 

Due to mismanagement of my time, and confusion during the London visit, I neglected to hand in the notes on WITCHCRAFT that Larry Goodgirl had requested from me for use in the programme.  Larry, quite rightly, reproached me about all this and I’ve agreed to bring the notes to his desk on Monday morning.  His scornful attitude indicated that he believes they will be worthless, so over the weekend I’m going to re-write them with a view to showing him who actually knows what about WITCHCRAFT.  [Good show! – Larry Goodgirl, late 1988]

 

Later:

8.20pm.

 

‘Slave To The Rhythm’ – Grace Jones



 

I think perhaps the most horrible moment was leaning over the bowl and choking up syruppy vodka with horrible yellow bits in it.  Then collapsing into a deep sleep in a water-filled bath.  Mind over matter that the bloody hangover went, I suppose.

 

And MASH was lovely.  I’ll go there again, so F.U. BABY YEH YEH.

 

All in all, it must have been groovy.  Dancing to groove-o acid on the omnibus was friggin’-A.

 

But now I’m clean.  Cleaned up.  Turned on.  Grooved out.  So let’s get down to some time-travelling, starting with this video of William Hartnell in Doctor Who: The Romans – thank you, Julian Ward, my main man. 


And then we’ll get down to – YO! – Remembrance Of the Dah-leks…

 

 

SLAVE TO THE HOUSE…

 


 

Ritcherd

GROOVE OUT DADDY!


 

ACCIEED!

 

Later:

 

‘Mega Blast’ – Bomb the Bass


 

Part Two of Remembrance Of The Daleks was, by golly, JONATHAN HARKER! 


The final action sequence with ACE, and the fascistic stuff, were particularly well done.

 

(OH, AND HOW THE HELL CAN ANYONE SELL BITS OF ILKLEY MOOR, WITH OR B’AHTAT?  IT’S NOT RAEGHT!!!)
