I spend a few minutes cycling around to find the least windy spot…and end up down the arse-end. Song Of The Day: 3rd one in – Here Comes The Sun, as it got five… Read more →

Diary Of A Busker Day 696

TweetDiary Of A Busker Day 696 Wednesday February 25th 2015 Winchester (Opposite Vodafone, Time: 3:13-5:25pm). A mild day, for once. In fact, compared to the last few weeks, it’s positively tropical!

Mr. Jackson and his rockabilly trio, of which he is one, are rockabillying at The Butter Cross, just a tad too loudly, I thought. Any louder and I wouldn’t have been able… Read more →

I’m standing with the bike outside Monsoon, looking about, and suddenly there she is – Delia – practically in front of me.

At the risk of sounding presumptive so early in the set, I name Here Comes The Sun as Song Of The Day as it earned no less than SEVEN donations…probably not all pound coins, though. There are some birds busy above, chucking stuff down at… Read more →
