Subject: Happy Birthday Les Barker!
From: Liz the Squeak
Date: 30 Jan 08 - 04:13 AM

Today is the birthday of our beloved poet and silly man, Les Barker.

Hope you're having a good day - after the last few weeks, you could probably do with a few smiles. To do this, we could all write to the BBC and ask them to play something from any of the 'Guide Cats for the Blind' series... just for fun!

What programme do you suggest - there are more request programmes for music than silly verse.

Same from me.
Have a lovely birthday (but don't overdo it)!

Just remember that you might feel you can walk half a mile, but it is also half a mile back again!

Sarah Kennedy and a lot of others on Radio 2 are good for a try... they've played his stuff before, and many have recorded for him.

Happy Burfdai Les!

Maybe we should all write to "Poetry Please".
Just wish I could see Roger McGough's face if we did... Tee Hee

Hippo Burpday two ewes Les.

Got put on your genius by the late Al Grierson back when The FolkDJ List was still a fun, creative place to be. I wish you the best of birthdays and of health and the best of years for the one this birthday marks.
