A great tribute to a great lady of the the theatre and a treasure of the Jewish people of Scotland far beyond our borders. Joyce has captured the true essence of this wonderful woman and after listening to her podcasts, Joyce captures her distinct voice.

This place is one of Edinburgh's real gems, but must also be one of its most neglected buildings. It's crying out to be a cafe, ice cream parlour or even a gallery. It has great views of the Royal Yacht Britannia, Arthur's Seat and Calton Hill. It deserves better than this.

A wee question. What you think of some ad-hoc entertainment happening in the gardens this summer? Unamplified busking, that kind of thing...just wondering aloud!

I imagined people might play the world’s tiniest violin for Dominic Cummings. I didn’t expect the world’s biggest kazoo.

So, I reckon these are the last big summer events in to fall victim to Covid-19. Whatever you think of them, it is going to look & feel a lot different over the next few months...it will also be intriguing to see what entertainment does end up taking place - & where.

Also from 1987, another debut single, with an Oscar Marzaroli photograph on the cover (I wonder where it was shot?) and the first few lines of the song on the back. Wasn’t a hit the first time round, somewhat remarkably.

Finally ventured inside my shamefully neglected box of seven inch singles - ask your parents! - for the first time in more than 20 years. Some buried treasure alright, including this debut single from 1987. “I’ve been so sad, since you said my accent was bad...”

Lockdown book review: read this for a brilliant, sweeping insight into why the cynicism and sleaze of our current politics gets us nowhere, and fails to represent the vast majority.
