    Diego Maradona

    Heading footballs and cocaine abuse - assuming he had some vulnerability to Alzheimer's his choice of work and hobby likely did him few favours. Does Peter Shilton know, because he'd give Maradona a decent kicking if he thought the man an unreliable witness in court!

    MMMDP 2019!

    I'll share the congratulations to you - though tbh I haven't been keeping tabs on the fatalities from the masterlist. I clearly avoided the podium because Mr Stiles still breathes; though he doesn't do a whole lot else these days.

    The Fringes Of Fame/family Of The Famous

    So, likely we're talking the talent that'd only score in low hanger deadpools but... According to news reports yesterday Alice Cooper's 96 year old mum still breathes During a speech on Sunday Jeremy Hunt referred to his 99 year old great aunt - still with us

    Time Added

    Former Carlisle manager Ian MacFarlane Arguably managed our best team (including Stan Bowles) - failed, to get promoted (only two up in those days) but got more points than the team two seasons later who did earn a place in the top flight: https://www.newsandstar.co.uk/sport/17722980.tributes-paid-to-former-carlisle-utd-manager-ian-macfarlane-who-has-died-at-86/?ref=fbshr

    The Dead of 2019

    Total legend amongst managers for his ability to allow his clients their creative freedom - wondering about our List of the Lost radio show and this; maybe if we play something from one of Neil's most off-the-wall works and make the point it was only possible because Elliott Roberts managed him to success in spite of commercial trends meaning creative freedom was non-negotiable in his contracts.

    The Dead Of 2009

    Got a press notification today of another compilation CD curated by Lux and Poison Ivy (i.e. culled from their considerable record collection) - this one being a beatnik special - I'll let yers know...

    A Joke

    So, that Jimmy Carr gag that made the papers "Do you think dwarves are abortions that made it?" Funny or too sick? Tbh I laughed first so I've - kind of - settled that in my own mind

    Magicians And Hypnotists

    Was a bit suspicious of this at first - I mean, if he'd pulled some stunt and emerged an hour later he's raised his profile massively - but event the Beeb is treating this as a probable death

    Been To Any Good Gigs Lately?

    Paul Weller at Bedgebury last night. Beautiful forest setting, full moon hanging in the sky and a strange willingness to play Jam #1 hits! Brilliant, basically
