Coronation Street Jumps.

In Wednesday's Coronation Street, two of the characters are listening to "Kind Of Blue" whilst on a houseboat on, presumably, the Weatherfield Ship Canal. Last year, a chubby character called Morton was referred to as 'Jelly Roll'. Another departed character was a drummer who compared himself to Buddy Rich. This made me wonder if any of the Corrie faithful knew what they were talking about!
Who knows but that the soundtrack over the titles may, one day, be played by Freddie Hubbard and that the drinkers in the "Rover's Return" will be ordering their pints of Newton & Ridley's as "Straight No Chaser".
