Burning Both Ends – Ollie And Moonie

I’m still regularly checking out BBC Radio for drama. Radio plays and book readings, etc.

Earlier in the week, I listened to this on…well, what is now BBC Sounds app (I’m still using the iPlayer radio app at the moment).

“Burning Both Ends: When Oliver Reed Met Keith Moon”. Originally broadcast in 2011, it had recently been repeated on BBC Radio 4 Extra.

I enjoyed it and thought I’d highlight it. Check it out. Just click on the image to go to the page to listen to it.

From Ibiza To The Norfolk Broads

After seeing one of…if not…THE most beautiful gigs I’ve ever experienced…the beautiful musical theme continued tonight by seeing “From Ibiza To The Norfolk Broads” at the Old Town Hall, Hemel Hempstead.

It’s a single actor play – written and directed by Adrian Berry, with Alex Walton playing the play’s main character, Martin (a young Bowie fan obsessive with “deemed” social, physiological and mental health issues), as will as several other characters. 

What an amazing actor. A stunning performance! The whole work was beautiful, tender, heart-breaking but mesmerising. 

Reeling from the loss of Chrissy last night, I had almost entirely forgot about it. My memory only jogged after having had a nap this afternoon and my thinking of the purchase of Holy Holy tickets for Aylesbury in April. 

I really wasn’t feeling up to it, but I thought I would mention it to the OH. She seemed keen to go…so off we went. Absolutely no regrets whatsoever! In fact I’d love to see it again as it tours around the UK until February.

I highly recommend it.
