Cheapside Market

Here are selection of pictures taken from my trip to London yesterday for the Cheapside Market - the first one to be held on Cheapside for over 250 years.

London airship video

I saw the airship flying around London last week and when I saw this courtesy of Londonist I couldn't resist a cross post. An excellent video.

This Week In London #34- Ruby Murray

Hello loyal listeners. Sorry it's been soooo long - I explain why in the show but it was too long. This TWIL is all about a British institution - the curry. I talk about the history of the curry, where it came from and how the British have changed it in its home country as well.

Listen to it here

Music is by Slashed Seat Affair, Nick Cave and Bad Seeds and Black Lab.

Please do email or leave comments - I really do appreciate and reply to every single one. Thanks!

Next show

Right. Mr. Gates and Mr. Ballmer take some of the blame for this post along with the muppets at Nvidia who cannot write a Video Card Driver to save their lives.

I was all geared up, research ready, voice in good working order and ready to record last night. Went to my PC, switched on and the next thing I knew was that it was 01h30 and I had just got my PC back up and running.

What had happened? I had updated my graphics card software. Big mistake. BIG mistake.

In the end I had to format my C: drive and reinstall Windows. So - until my PC is back up properly - it still has issues - and all the audio software is back on it - my latest show "Westminster Abbey" will have to wait.

Believe me I am as narked as you. Later.

New show in the works

Just to let you all know that I'm working on a new show. It's been a while but This Week In London will be back in the next couple of days. Thanks for bearing with me. June was tough.

I'm taking requests for the music. What would you like me to play?
