Johnny Cash on Saturday

There are few recording artists who are considered an example of  'cool' throughout their careers and remain there long after their death, but Johnny Cash is one such person.

The American singer-songwriter was one of the top selling music artists of all time, selling more than 90 million records worldwide.

Drug and alcohol abuse featured prominently in his early career until he met and fell in love with June Carter, who was independently famous as part of the bible singing Carter Family.  Cash said he had an epiphany when meeting Carter and his devotion for her made him clean up his habits and embrace the teachings of the Lord.   (Everyone say Hallelujah!)

Johnny Cash is best know for songs, Hurt, A Boy Named Sue, Ghost-riders, Folsom Prison Blues, Ring of Fire, When The Man Comes Around, Jackson and Walk The Line.

He is appearing  on Saturday and you are invited to spend some time with this great icon.

The party starts at 12pm SLT (8pm UK), with the concert an hour later at 1pm SLT.

It's Michaelmas!

Oh my goodness, here we are again at one of the most exciting non-events of the year.  It's Michaelmas!   Happy Michaelmas everyone!

It is Michaelmas (pronounced mickle-mas).
The feast of the Saints and the start of the season leading up to Christmas.

So here in London City, we'd like to be the first people to wish you season's greetings for a great Michaelmas.

Inconveniently, Michaelmas Eve is on Wednesday the 28th September and that means Michaelmas Day itself is on Thursday.

So we're holding a Michaelmas Event  Madame Lala's, on Friday, with DJ Bailey playing her collection of two Michaelmas songs from 1pm SLT, 

Any excuse for a drink eh?   Oh I wish it could be Michaelmas every-daa-aay!
