Tonight

Tonight's BBC 4 programmes are detailed elsewhere to which all I can say is "Thank God for iplayer and catch up TV". The reason being that Ex Extreme - the heir to David Carnegie's Extreme Measures - are tonight's Splinter @ The Bridge band. Well worth the fiver admission.
Meanwhile, over on Pink Lane, from late afternoon drop in on the Jazz Café Jam Session. After flagging for a week or two I'm told last week was well attended with a lot of new players sitting in and this week promises to be similar.
So bring your axe or just your ears and soak up the charismatic atmosphere of a unique venue.
Even earlier - from 4:00pm - The Narrators are at the Central Bar, Gateshead. Hannah is no longer with the band who now have Belinda Voshtina - a seriously good singer I'm told. - on vocals.
Lance.
