Calypso Time

Today I am staving off the effects of this foul weather with calypso from Lord Kitchener (not the man who organised recruitment into the British army during the First World War but his namesake who came to Britain from Jamaica in 1948 on the Empire Windrush).

Rock ‘n’ Roll Calypso


London Is The Place For Me

So sang Calypso king Lord Kitchener, passenger on the SS Empire Windrush in 1948. And for the next couple of days London is the place for me too so there’ll be nowt happening here until Friday night at the earliest. (School trip innit, taking a group of 6th formers round the Imperial War Museum, Florence Nightingale Museum, the National Portrait Gallery, the British Museum if we can fit it in and the London Eye). See you later.
