Bebop Spoken There

Paul Edis: "One of the regulars at The Gala today called me a 'turncoat' and another a 'deserter' - that's a very northern way of displaying affection in response to the news that I'm leaving the area. 'They're vicious down there mind you'. " - (Twitter January24, 2020)

Support the Petition to save the BBC Big Band from cuts.

Seems as though the BBC Big Band is subject to the  cuts - is nothing sacred these days?
If you object to the BBC's treatment of the BBC Big Band please sign the petition. go to it from here.
For god's sake they are a national institution! This shouldn't be allowed. - Below is the letter to Jeff Smith "Head of Music at not everyone's favourite auntie."
Lance.
The BBC Big Band is a national institution and has been for the last 48 years - they have been the inspiration for musicians all over the world and are the epitome of a world class band. The radio programme "Big band special" is being cut and the maida vale sessions are being cut to 20% of what they currently do!! A cut of 80%. We are petitioning that these cuts do not go ahead.
