....oops! Ah the old harmoniser in the fold-back trick and the Davenport theatre - nostalgia isn't what it used to be! Do you remember the idiot they employed as a stage manager Bernard? A mate of mine said he wanted to throw him off the loading bay and another friend, who used to work part time as a follow spot operator, assured me someone already had.

Whilst we are into anecdotes, I once had a roadie testing a radio mic - 1,2 - 1,2 - 24, 13 , 65, 49....... Suddenly the back door burst open and a stranger came in asking if we were using a radio mic. Turned out that he was a bingo caller over the road and it was breaking through on his system.
