Here comes summer-time



In the UK and Europe, the clocks go forward by 1 hour at bedtime, tonight!

This means that London City will "catch up" with the confusing USA clocks that changed two weeks ago and London time will be back to where it was, 8 hours ahead of SL Time.

Going Irish: The Nolans in Concert, on Saturday



It is The Nolan's on Saturday!

The Nolan's, who originally formed in 1974 as The Nolan Sisters, are an Irish/British girl group, famous for uptempo covers of well known songs.

In their own right, they are most famous for I'm In The Mood For Dancing, which when released in 1979, topped the charts around the world, and to this day, remains one of the most famous disco songs of the era.

The sisters, Anne, Denise, Maureen, Linda and Bernie, became regular favourites, appearing on many weekly prime-time shows, including The Two Ronnies.

Family feuds, ill health and the death of Bernie, put a stop to their act in the 2000's but the band reformed again in 2009, but stopped performing again by 2014.

Enjoy this show on Saturday at 12pm SL time (8pm UK), featuring all the Nolan's at the height of their popularity, with special guest, Kim Woodburn, who recently appeared quite demented along side Coleen Nolan on multiple shows!

Irish climax




On Saturday night, London City went wild for some crusties, as the Dubliners performed a wonderful concert of all the well known classic folk balads.  It was that kind of party where you could still sing along even if you did not really know the words.










And here is last nights Newsreel!


Get a dose




Quit yo' Jibber Jabber and get yo' vaccine!


On Friday as part community service and part party with nibbles, Madame Bailey hosted an event at Lala's that was literally a shot in the arm.

Being the youngest on the team (he lied), I have watched nearly all my UK friends getting their Covid Vaccine before me.

My turn is on Sunday, about the time this entry gets posted.  I have to say I feel a bit elated about it, as I have waited so long.   I've always had a bit of a phobia about people with colds, so Covid to me is very much a physcological horror as well.

If you are undecided or reluctant, reach out to me and I'll let you know how it went.  However, I do believe that the vaccine is far less frightening than the very real chance of catching this virus.

As you can see, the London team is quite large and watching everyone getting their shot before me has been unnerving in so far as every country is making end-of-lockdown plans and I am still waiting for the vaccine.

I do hope everyone in the universe gets their opportunity soon.  Til then, wear a facemask and burn the lavatory seat after use.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!



Pissed as a fart, "Two fingers of whisky please"

A very happy St. Patrick's day to you all!

Join everyone in The Worlds End pub today at 12pm SLT (7pm UK) for a right proper knees up with copious amounts of liquor.

St. Patrick, the Patron Saint of Partaay, was born in Belfast in 1955 and is credited with forcing Christianity on the people of Ireland.  But he did some good things too..  He was the first 3 parts pissed Bishop who would regularly have a nip, mid-sermon for medicinal purposes whilst singing Hymn's in the style of Boris Yeltsin.

The Apostle of Ireland, came to a sticky end when he fell into a vat of rum in 1995, but left this world with a smile and a burp.

Let's all party today, its what St. Patrick would have wanted!

Joe Dolan on Saturday



Continuing the Irish Festival for St Patrick's, top entertainer Joe Dolan in Concert on Saturday.

Joe Dolan was an Irish entertainer and recording artist.

He is known mainly for his flamboyant shows which include many well know standards and for his high pitched singing voice, without using falsetto, which is reminiscent of Greek singer Demis Roussos.

Whilst Joe never achieved notable chart success in America, he regularly toured the States and played a residency in Vegas.  In Ireland he is the only Irish singer to have charted in the top ten in each decade from the 1960s onwards.

Joe Dolan died in 2007, but his talents live on and whilst you may not be familiar with the singer you will certainly know the songs and enjoy Joe's rendition.

On Saturday we invite you to enjoy this remarkable entertainer at Party in The Park.

Party starts at 1pm SL (8pm  UK) and the show is an hour later at 2pm SL.
