    Quiz Time

    Gilbert O'Sullivan for me. Awful, awful songs, naff clothes (even by 70s standards), stupid name.

    Sexy Politicans

    On another point, when did "bitch" get escalated into a massively offensive swear word, to the point where swear filters often censor it? Even if you're talking about dogs, or using it as a verb, eg bitching about something. In my day "bitch" was quite a mild insult, often used ironically or affectionately (as in "Oooh, you lucky bitch!")

    Gloria Vanderbilt

    I never knew Gloria Vanderbilt was an actual person. I thought it was just a jeans trademark.

    So sorry for your loss, drol. I like YW's thought about the three Dads.

    The Dead of 2019

    I'll just say, as I usually do, that ALL deaths should be posted in this thread, as well as in their specialised thread(s). I can't see the point of having it otherwise. But not many seem to agree with me.

    Bob Harris has suffered an aortic dissection Veteran broadcaster Bob Harris is to take a break from presenting his BBC Radio 2 country show after suffering an aortic dissection. The condition occurs when there is a tear in the wall of the major artery carrying blood out of the heart. "The aorta is basically the M1 of the body and any damage is regarded as extremely serious," said Harris. "I am not exactly sure when I will be on air again but I am on the road to recovery now," he continued. Harris, known to fans as "Whispering Bob", said he suffered a tear to his aorta while out walking 10 days ago. "It was an incredibly scary moment and I am massively indebted to the ambulance crew who attended so promptly," he said, Harris, 73, also paid tribute to the Intensive Care team and consultants at Oxford's John Radcliffe Hospital, his wife Trudie and his "wonderful" family. Paul Sexton will host the next two editions of Harris's hour-long show, which airs on Thursdays at 21:00 BST.

    Been To Any Good Gigs Lately?

    A friend of mine of mine saw them a couple of weeks ago; said pretty much the same.I'll also have to look out for them round these parts again. I used to vaguely know a bloke who used to come into the pub where I worked and I'm sure that he worked as a session musician with them and he hung himself in his kitchen. ETA It was the drummer https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kevin_Wilkinson- if I remember rightly his poor children found him. Yeah, things that amazed me about China Crisis 1 - They are funny in the sarcy and grim northern manner of The Smiths 2 - They are actually a damn good show. 3 - Their history is - to say the least - troubled, along with the suicide one of the main duo also assaulted their manager to the point that criminal charges were on the way before a mutual parting was agreed which saved a prison sentence but also did serious harm to their career (apart from anything else, it gave them trouble finding new management with any - no pun intended - clout). Got tickets to see China Crisis in September. I remembered this discussion when they cropped up in the listings for one of our local venues, so thought it worth a go.

    Death Songs

    Perhaps I've missed something, but I can't see a topic collecting all those gruesome pop songs featuring death. To start the ball rolling, here's murderer R. Dean Taylor on the run in 1970 (and probably not surviving the hail of gunfire at the end).

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2020

    The idea of that programme makes me cringe. Poor little kids, having that foisted on them. I'd have been out at the earliest possible opportunity.
