=======================================================
RICK WAKEMAN/ACOUSTIC STRAWBS SHOW ON PLANET ROCK RADIO
=======================================================

A reminder - this show will be aired on Sat 5th May (Rick's show is at
10.00am). Instructions how to tune into Planet Rock at
http://planetrock.com/Article.asp?id=266183. You need to enter a valid UK
postcode such as W1V 2PG in order to be able to receive the station.


=====================================
CROPREDY - CHANGE OF DATE FOR STRAWBS
=====================================

The Fairport Cropredy site is now announcing that Strawbs will be playing
on Saturday 11th August rather than Thursday 9th August. This is great
news for Strawbs and their fans, I think - there'll be a much bigger crowd
on the Saturday than on Thursday, and Strawbs fans can buy a Saturday only
ticket, considerably cheaper than the full three day ticket, if they prefer.


==========================
THE BOY IN THE SAILOR SUIT
==========================

Dave Cousins e-mailed me to say that the recording of "Boy" was going
extremely well and to schedule. The tracks were recorded in the early
part of the week, Dave did his vocals on Thursday last week and mixing took
place over the next day or so.

Dave commented:

"The playing is exceptional - Miller soaring into space, Ian playing rock
violin like a veteran, Chas and Chris rock solid. The songs are very
personal and many inspired by the move to the sea.

All this in 6 days!"
