In the charts
I wrote to you last month about the Milton Keynes Music charts. It’s a local chart whereby songs get ranked simply by being listened to. I hoped that if we could achieve a number one hit we’d get some publicity, on the basis of “Agency boss is A1 in the charts!” I uploaded a blues piece I recorded with singer and radio presenter Debbie Murray and asked you to try and bump it up to the top by listening to it. Lots of you did just that; it reached number four and stayed there for two weeks running before slipping down to number nine. Thank you to all those who listened and tried to help; we nearly made it, but can’t wallow in what might have been.
If you want to hear the track out of curiosity log onto
and scroll down to the current chart, then click on, “You Released The Blues in Me’ by Debbie Murray and Andy Gilbert. It won’t help it get to the top now, we’re on the way down and sinking! But some tutors and students might be curious to know whether the boss really is of music teacher standard or full of air!
Once every two months we have a chance to get together, and that time is Monday 5th March. This is the next One World Club show, which the agency sponsors in its efforts to support the fight against racism. I organise the entertainment, and can even be seen playing guitar in this one, backing Debbie Murray, the singer who reached number four in the Milton Keynes charts as mentioned above. This is a personal invitation to everybody. Is that an oxymoron or am I a regular moron? It’s free and I’m always keen to meet our clients and tutors, whether for the first time or ‘nice to see you again’ time.
