Definitely my favourite email this year came today from Brisbane. Here’s the note in it’s entirety –

Just moved into a new neighbourhood, found this one block down.

Hi Lloyd

Sat in office at The University of Hull listening to you on Radio 6.
No Blue Skies is playing. This is a huge flashback moment for me. I was a 19 year old student when that album came out. I loved it so much. My girlfriend at the time had it on vinyl and I wanted a copy so much. It was a Sunday afternoon and in those days no shops were open except a petrol garage. No luck I’m afraid.

So nearly 30 years on and I am now an ‘academic’ but for a moment I was young, naive and had time to listen to music and believe in it.
