This is when my willingness to help folk out comes back to bite me. I have not one but two music quizzes planned in September, both for good causes and both with overlapping audiences so the questions will all have to be different.
Please support one or both of them.
On 3 September I will be doing one for Altzheimers Scotland to raise funds for Pete Mill who is doing a sponsored hike to Machu Pichu to raise money for them. It’s £40 a team and is being kindly hosted by Hudson recruitment in The West End of Edinburgh.
On 24 September it is the third annual NABS music Quiz at Newhaven Communications. Previous nights have been a riot and very close fought affairs with Newhaven winning in 2007 and Multiply lifting the trophy in 2008. It’s £100 for a team of four.
Let me know if you’d like to enter either of them as a team OR as an individual (we can match you up into a team).
I don’t have the softest of spots for old Bob and I particularly don’t enjoy his overrated Radio Theme Show; which is kind of dull I think. But I do like his spoken voice and would actually consider buying this. It would drive me mad though as his laconic drawl would be a nightmare on more complicated instructions like…
“At the roundabout take the first exit then take a sharp right followed by a sharp left.”
Having failed to deliver the entire message before you’d reached the first exit he’d be chiming back at you.
“Hey dood, you messed up, but let’s chill out a bit. Let’s go through that again…when you came on the roundabout in the first place man you shoulda hung a left at the first exit…No man you’ve just taken the second exit by mistake. But hey no worries, just find a layby to pullover, take five, chill then revisit the highway by means of a U turn. Head back to the roundabout and take that good old first exit again, which, by now dood, is the fourth exit then take that sharp right and a sharp left. You got that? No? Whatever man. Let’s just cruise!”
