Friday Night is Dankworth Night

Apologies to all including Russell who gave me the info but tonight BBC4 has devoted 3 hours to Sir John Dankworth - better known as just plain Johnny to us cats of a certain age - including some Jazz 625 footage. It started at 9pm.
I hear you cry 'It's now 11:15! Banjo Lance - subject him to Kenny G - make him listen to Ake Takasi - force him to drink John Smith's - make him wear a Zoot Suit of sackcloth and ashes.'
Don't fret - it is repeated in the early hours and, no doubt, available on the good old BBC iplayer.

Hi Lance

The broadcast is next Friday (November 5th). You're a jazz man ahead of your time.
