    Dear RJers,

    It's Saturday night in London, and it's raining. I just wanted to say that my dad, the former firefighter and dock worker, is 70 years old today. He's here with me, my ma and my partner, and we have made him some martinis and I'm cooking him a steak and I have some Argentinian Malbec waiting for him. I thought you guys would approve. I'm proud of him, and wanted to share that. Some of us Brits can go without irony for 24 hours.

    And Tuck and Patti are playing on spotify. So ALL is good.

    That sounds great! Enjoy!

    But what do you mean about irony? And who are Tuck and Patti?

    Thanks for posting the video. It's been years since I listened to them, even though two of their LPs [CDs] are in the collection. Are they still recording? Tuck Andress lived in my dorm freshman year, as did Wyndam Wilson, the guy on who's label they recorded.

    They're gems, aren't they? i think their last recording was 'i remember You' in 2007. They will always remind me of sleeping on a brooklyn floor in the summer of 1993 after I'd been working in a summer camp...
