Strange how potent cheap music is

As usual on a Saturday morning (when I’m not at the market) I’m listening to Sounds of the Sixties. Brian Matthew played The Everly Brothers singing Let It Be Me. I turned up the radio as loud as I could stand it. I literally felt goosebumps break out on my arms and when it finished found tears in my eyes. It’s absolutely perfect.

Incidentally, 'your old mate Brian Matthew' and his wife celebrated their sixtieth wedding anniversary last week.
