Just wondering whether to join you, as it is not quite the same listening in as being there  Sad


For every “Here’s a new song” there’s a spine-chiller.

Just found out the wasp I killed yesterday was a wasp cop who was too old for this s**t and only one week away from retirement. Feel awful.

Moving song but Peggy's voice is not up to it.

Yes, me too. I decided to keep the faith and I have settled into it now. Albeit having to have it really quiet due to my temporary lodgings sitch.


P.s. what’s a ne? Wink

The perils of using a wireless keyboard too far from the PC.

Oh dear, Fish trying to sing Solo. They are not making it easy for us are they.  Roll Eyes

Just tuned in. Is that Fish? He should be fried for what he's doing to Solo.

It seems an odd way to pay tribute to Sandy by letting Peggy, PJ and Fish all sing songs out of tune.

Thank goodness for Iain Matthews but even he sounds unrehearsed.

Is it cold in that field, that can play tricks with voices?

I think they have misjudged the setlist badly here. They are playing in a cold, wet field and there is no energy in this performance at all. I am betting that people are leaving in droves at this point.

And Simon's voice is wandering too now, as it has tended to do sometimes in recent years.

Yes.  My other half just left the room.

Come on, chaps, get it together!

Yes, I’d expect WKWTTG a bit nearer to the end, to mellow things down before MOTL. Still over an hour to go.

Tortuous in parts but will stick it out. At least its comfy and dry in north wales and the beer is flowing nicely. we weren't able to attend this year, Money well saved for future ventures I think.

It is indeed cold and damp.
I have never seen the field so empty.
Many left when the rain poured down earlier and have not come back.
I am also suffering terribly from sciatica and may also leave the field soon.
I have never left before Meet on the Edge and almost feel disrespectful.
It has just started raining again.
I rather envy you in your warm houses!

Very pleasant listening on a sunny 87 degree afternoon, out on the deck smoking some good buds and re-reading William Gibson's Pattern Recognition.
Kudos to Radio Oxford for even doing this.. Respect. Smiley
Sounds pretty darn good to me.

I wonder if the weather and the stress of possibly having to negotiate an emotionally difficult moment before the night is out is zapping everyone's energy.

Chris Leslie has his knockers (stop your titters) but the man is an utterly dependable singer and player.  Things are steadying out now.
