  1. I remember Marilyn Hill Smith coming to a recording of Havergal Brian’s opera _The Tigers_ in BBC Maida Vale in 1983 in a tight-fitting T-shirt with a caption (made up by her then husband, apparently) which read: “Don’t look at mine — grow your own”.

  2. What does it say? I can’t read it

  3. Oh, I thought it read In Hove.

  4. This concert is being streamed on the web live by Netherlands Radio even as I type this. It’s a good bet that it eventually will be available for replay at NR’s Concerthouse site (a superb place to find all sorts of great stuff). It is easy to navigate even if you don’t know Dutch.

    The program:

    Wonderful. Public displays of affection have figured out how to annoy everyone even more.

  6. We should ask,”with whom ?”
