Welcome To My Blog

Thanks for checking the blog out... Hope it offers something a bit different every now & again. Though I come from a pseudo - Mod background (Soul & Ska in particular), I have a diverse taste in music & hope my varied posts will reflect this.

Cheers Skamanc .... I'm not after your undying gratitude, but please leave your thoughts, comments & opinions on the posts & content. I regularly up- & download material, plus buy and trade items. As such, if I have inadvertently "trodden on anyone's toes" in posting anything then please let me know & accept my apologies. Also please support the artists involved & remember that the blog is merely a pointer toward these various downloads, which are stored elsewhere. Legally, any downloads should not be retained for more than a week. So now I've told you the legal bit !

Feel free to give me a shout : waltjabsco@hotmail.com

My Apologies...

Massive apologies to the blog brethren & general visitors for the distinct lack of activity recently. (Since early August to be precise...)

Thanks to all for the e-mails etc checking I'm still alive, as well as links, files etc.

Unfortunately, I am still unable to log on @ home and have been constrained my the demands of work and loads of overtime, in an attempt to keep my head above water. In fact, I worked the whole of August with no days off and have only had one day off this month so far...

The blog is not defunct, in that I definitely plan to continue with it, when time, funds and (hopefully) a new / 2nd hand but serviceable computer  allow me to.

Thanks for your patience & ongoing, fantastic support, Andy / Skamanc / the Blogfather etc.

PS Been watching through the entire Sgt Bilko archive recently - 110% recommended!!
Phil Silvers is one of the funniest men who ever lived...
