From: GUEST,Ralphie....(Not at Home)
Date: 30 Jan 03 - 04:46 PM

Thought some UK people (and elsewhere, if you've got Radio Streaming) That I'll be breaking through the glass of the Johnnie Walker show BBC Radio 2 to do a little interview and play a tune. Apparently my little vignette on Mondays show, caused a flurry of E Mails. So, I'm back tomorrow, for a proper chat...!
I've even managed to get a good friend to do the mix...!
Thanks if any of you contacted the show....I'll try and play properly tommorrow!
Show time...1700 -1900 UK time...I'll probably be on in the second hour, but can't guarantee that.
So, tune in, and see the Emperor minus his clothes.!

Regards Ralphie

Thanks so much for the kind thoughts..
I'll do me best.
It's about time that somebody stood up for the music and traditions that we all hold dear. (All joking apart)
It seems that my "Warhol" 15 minutes of fame arrives tomorrow evening.
What will happen, I know not. But, rest assured, I'll be thinking of you all.

When I do radio interviews though, I find I'm usually pacing around the house (on a cordless) .. would that work in the average studio I wonder?

Anyway, think of it like having a baby .. this time tomorrow night it'll all be over **G**

Noreen - You can just see him in the "Red Lion" photo HERE, although McGrath's partly obscuring him with his beer glass. You can also see him in quite a lot of the Parliament Square photos such as THIS ONE. Just look for that head of light grey hair at a high altitude - he's at least as much in evidence as me.

Thanks Dave, but they're sitting down :0)

...that head of light grey hair... with the guitar, or the one with the Anglo, or the one with the saxophone, or... *grin*?

Not that I'm obsessing or anything- well actually I am a bit at the moment, but I'll get over it.

Noreen - It 'll be the concertina but it's not an anglo - Ralphie plays a McCann duet which is alot bigger than most anglos. So - Ralphie's the one with the big one... ooer, missus!

I got a long phone call from his lordship last night, cut short only by my mobile battery running out - so Ralphie, if you're reading this don't take it personally, it wasn't anything you said!!!!

Anyway, I hope I get to hear it on the web site after the event - between 5 and 7 I'm likely to be battling my way through the snow to Cambridge to play in a birthday ceilidh. (some of us have to work, you know....)

Whatever happens - everybody email the programme afterwards to say how you'd like to hear more music like that etc..... every little helps, and it was only the email reaction to the impromptu performance on Monday that has resulted in tonight's more serious interview.

Sock it to'em Ralphie - you're among friends!

The one with the Duet Concertina - mind you I think Ralph can play just about anything !

You can also see him in THIS photo from Monday's rally. He's just below a red van with SC on the side, using his mobile phone - if you download the pic, you should be able to zoom in on him.

If you've really got the hots for him, you can always try PMing him - he is a member, although he seems to be posting as a guest most of the time these days.

Thank you, kind sirs, for the edumication. Doesn't look that big to me. Still, I suppose it depends on what you're used to...

...everybody email the programme afterwards to say how you'd like to hear more music like that etc.

Can we decide after we've heard it? * big grin*

And Dave, am I that transparent? Maybe I've frightened him off and he's afraid of being swept away in a tidal wave of PMs when he resets his cookie? Oh, Ralphie! *sigh*

I once had a boyfriend that looked a bit like Frank Zappa. Actually, more like a 6'4" Geddy Lee (chipmunk voice from Rush). Didn't sing like either one though.

Some good points made about PELs Ralphie!
I don't know whether folks listening to Radio 2 (other than the Mike Harding listeners) will have been confronted with the issues, so giving them a very clear explanation of what the threats are to traditional sessions was a real coup.
Good on you.Hope it stirs things up a bit more.
Loved the 'Take 5'. And I always thought it was Dave Brubeck who wrote it.You live and learn.

Hi Peeps...
Thanks for all the messages....Not only here, but, to the show as well.
Even got a text message from Jo Whiley ! (Radio 1 DJ)
Yes, I did get a crafty dig in about PEL's, by asking if the studio was licensed !
No, Liz...there was no way I was mentioning the Martians !!
All the people in there where basically the production crew on the show, plus a bewildered looking Radio 2 announcer!
I'll try and find out if its saved on the Beeb web site somewhere..probaby is..
Anahata and Mary...Yes The Coppers were Fab, If a bit late getting there, and yes a pint or two of Adnams was taken!
So, thanks again for all the support...I'll wear it always!

Oh bugger! - sorry Ralphie, I'd had such an awful time getting to work (3 hours, 1 of which was spent between Oxford Circus and Piccadilly Circus on a Bakerloo train with a blown fuse) that it never occurred to me, when I got back home at 6, that I still could have heard you on radio 2 ....

I'm sorry I missed you in Parliament Square on Monday as well - seeing as my (and the Admiral's) Monday interview with a Channel 4 reporter on PEL and the Licensing Bill didn't get shown I'm glad you got a chance to mention it.

Nice to see that you and Patterson and Dipper are booked for Whitby this year!
