I always thought the Paris was a slightly odd place - a small, formal theatre in the Regent Street area - but some good programmes came out of it.
I was a regular attendee at the Playhouse Theatre down Northumberland Avenue on Saturday afternoons to see "Country Meets Folk" being broadcast. I ran the BBC Folk Club (Clanfolk) for a spell, and got a clutch of free tickets for it each week from the Ticket Unit. Saw loads of people there, including Pentangle, Ralph McTell, etc. - all with the great Brock (Brian Brocklehurst) on bass.
Then up the road to the Sherlock Holmes pub for a pint or three, and then a walk up west through Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens to our Bayswater bedsit.
