....for busking purposes by London Underground's licencing authorities.

It's been blacklisted because 'Transport For London' think it's a banjo!

This is not a joke. Reported in the Evening Standard

If they've specifically banned the "Banjolele", they'd better be careful. "Banjolele" is a trade name - just like the difference between a Hoover and a vacuum cleaner. Banjoleles were produced by the Alvin D Keech company and all the rest are banjo-ukuleles. There endeth this morning's trivia!

Um, not sure what happened there... So back to the programme.

If London Underground can license a saxaphone-playing Henry the Hoover with his human guitar-playing accompaniment then they can allow a Banjolele or banjo-ukulele for that matter.

(By the way, I swear that that Hoover isn't playing live...)
