Bebop Spoken There

Melanie Charles: "If I don't have a gig I'll try to get in bed by midnight. But if I do, I might end up having a jam session after. That happened a few weeks ago, and I didn't get to bed until 7 a.m.." - (The New York Times Aug. 10, 2018)

Win Some - Lose Some.

As many of you know, I worked in a local music store for many years and, not surprisingly, a few incidents have stuck in my mind.
This one has nothing to do with jazz and it's questionable if it has anything to do with music either but it is the kind of story that, I think, might appeal to the jazz sense of humour.
Rolf Harris was appearing at the City Hall and he sent one of his roadies along to ask if he could borrow a Didgeridoo (I did say the musical content was questionable). I agreed on the condition that Rolf autographed the 'instrument'. This he duly did and the instrument was returned.
Some weeks later a young lady came into the store and asked if we had any Didgeridoos.
I told her that not only did we have Digi's but that we had one autographed by none other than Rolf Harris.
The young lady thought for a moment then said, "Do you have any that aren't autographed by Rolf Harris?"
Lance.
