    Sure, you could listen to the same music more clearly on Spotify or whatever. But to hear it played over the airwaves, from a ship in the North Sea, imagining yourself to be hearing these new tunes, like ‘European Son’ or ‘White Rabbit’, for the first time…

    It’s quite magical to be able to listen to a 55 year old radio broadcast, trying to imagine someone tuning in after midnight in 1967…

    Blimey, just noticed I’ve been running for more than eleven years. 11! Not sure where that time went. Might need to map it out somehow…

    Aww. Last time I was in London I thought, “I’ve only been to Andrew Edmunds once,” and treated myself to dinner there, and the food and the place and the people were lovely.…

    So sorry to hear that the art dealer and restaurateur Andrew Edmunds has died. A true pillar of Soho. I've been recommending the lovely restaurant that carries his name to people for years.

    @Zoonie @smagdali I decided that Dominion/Mother Russia will be my karaoke song if I ever do karaoke, which I have no plans to ever do.

    When I started at the @guardian there was a lot of consternation about the future of newspapers and I once joked that their two letter .com domain could become their most valuable asset.

    There are of course only 676 two letter (a-z) .com domain names in existence.

    For the record, this is the photo I took on intercepting design director as he left to ask for permission for us to use said royal cypher... It was granted, by some miracle. He's a very persuasive man.
