Indig02 _at_ The 02 Arena
Peninsula Square London SE10 0DX
The Bedford SXSW special fundraising show will be a celebration of some extraordinary talent as well as a chance to support the Bedford in this ambitious project. In addition, 10 lucky ticket holders will win valuable prizes on the night and there will also be a celebrity auction and lots of surprises throughout the evening.

Steve Morris *is* the Voice Of Wolverhampton, if not the whole Fairport Delta! On Monday January 25th the bus pass lands on the doormat of WCR FM's station manager - still forlornly looking for Teenage Kicks incidentally - and he'll be celebrating with a marathon offering of some of his favourite music from across the decades - including some never before heard on radio - interspersed with anecdotes and tall tales plus a repeat of the edition of Pete Whitehouse's Inside Tracks in which he talks about his life and times as they were in April 2007. It all makes for a unique, special and entertaining night on 101.8 WCR FM. Starts at 7pm and runs through to midnight on 101.8 FM or on the internet. Join the part ...

It is with regret that Tom Paxton has cancelled his forthcoming UK tour dates. Unfortunately Tom?s wife Midge has been taken ill and Tom and family are currently at her bedside. Tom said: 'It breaks my heart to have to cancel my UK tour, however I need to be with my wife, Midge right now. I hope to return later on in the year to make this up to all my fans.' Ticket holders are advised to return to their point of purchase for a refund. Please check for future UK tour date announcements for later in the year.

Quote of the week from Shane MacGown as reporterd by CMU "They sell all those lotions to cure you of baldness... They don't work. There is only one way to cure baldness - you pour Guinness over your head, collect it in a bucket, and drink it in the morning. It's proven to work". You want to receive the CMU Daily?

So much music and so little time to enjoy it all but that shouldn't stop you getting out there and trying!
Love, Sue
