    The deaD of 2023

    Not sure which section this goes in, so putting it here. Geoff Davies, founder of Liverpool record shop Probe Records, and its spin-off label Probe Plus (home of Half Man Half Biscuit until 2021) has died.

    Comedians & Comedy Writers

    I was unlucky enough to catch an early 1980s variety comedy show named Funnybone whose star attraction was the new comedy duo Cheese & Onion. They were dreadful, the show never made it to a second series, and they split up a couple of years later.

    Cliff Richard and Lulu had their own Saturday night shows, and they're still with us.

    44. Sonny Rollins

    In 1949, Sonny Rollins was one of the five musicians who took part in a Bud Powell recording session for Blue Note, which later appeared on the first side of the album The Amazing Bud Powell, Vol. 1. Rollins is not the only musician from that session still alive, as drummer Roy Haynes is also still with us. The trumpeter on that session, Fats Navarro, died back in 1950.

    I almost want to unblock Diego.

    He was on his show last night, apparently. Byline Times deliberately launched the article just after his show started.

    They could of course be well-known for something else other than their position as a TV presenter.

    He could be some local radio presenter or regional news host. Or someone whose role as a presenter is somewhat slight. I can recall a news story from a few years ago, pertaining to a musician of some sort who got sent down for sexual offences. One of the right-wing newspapers labelled him as "BBC Man" as he was once part of an orchestra that appeared on a single BBC TV show.

    The Beatles Death Curse

    If I've remembered it correctly, he played a few dates with the band in December 1960 after their first return from Hamburg, prior to McCartney switching to bass.

    He's touring the western United States with his All Starr Band starting in about two weeks time.

    Recep Tayyip Erdogan

    Possibly unrelated, but Putin was seen heading at speed in a convoy to the Kremlin about an hour ago, at around 10pm Moscow time.
