TweetDiary Of A Busker Day 474 Saturday November 16th 2013 Winchester (1. Opposite Oxfam, Time: 2:54-4:41pm, 2. Opposite Vodafone, Time: 4:50-5:30pm). I seem to get a load of people asking about my amp, which I don’t mind stopping to talk about IF they contribute something in the way of coinage. There was one guy who I gave a load of… Read more →

Diary Of A Busker Day 472

TweetDiary Of A Busker Day 472 Wednesday November 13th 2013 Winchester (Opposite Vodafone, Time: 2:40-4:40pm.) I’d been there only five minutes when who should turn up but Shirley and Eric, in a wheelchair (Eric, not Shirley).

TweetDiary Of A Busker Day 345 Friday March 29th Winchester High Street (1. opposite Bellis/O2, Time: 1:13-2pm, 2. opposite Vodafone, Time: 2:30-3:05pm). A really busy Friday afternoon, but as I well know, it doesn’t always relate to an abundance of coinage. I still hold with my theory: people get caught up in the forward moving throng, and there’s so much other… Read more →

Diary Of A Busker Day 343

TweetDiary Of A Busker Day 343 Wednesday March 27th (opposite Vodafone, Time: 3:13-4:07pm). The temperature on the computer says 3.4 degrees – about 2 degrees warmer than Monday, so I reckon I’ll last another 15 minutes.
