Sad to hear that Birmingham musician and songwriter, L o l Mason, has died aged 69. He was a member of Birmingham band City Boy who had a big hit with 5-7-0-5 in 1978 and later on formed The Maisonettes and had another top ten hit with Heartache Avenue in 1982.
I once sat in a theatre seat directly behind Lol Mason - at the Roses Theatre in Tewkesbury. The theatre was at that time owned by 'veteran turn' Stan Stennett who was, in the early 1980s, appearing in the iconic TV soap Crossroads. He managed to persuade a number of his Crossroads cast colleagues to appear in a pantomime at the Roses and amongst them was the now late Carolyn Jones who in the soap, played the garage manager, Sharon (keeping up so far?). Now Carolyn was at the time, married to Lol Mason's brother Jeremy, hence her brother-in-law's supportive appearance. The Roses is also known as the venue where the legendary Eric Morecambe passed away in 1984 after an appearance in conversation with Stan Stennett.
Anyone who doesn't live in the UK will probably find all of this meaningless. Anyone who is from the UK should probably be demanding my resignation on the grounds of questionable cultural taste!!

Horacewimp: We are all good thanks, just wishing I could go on a foreign holiday, it’s just not worth the risk with Covid and the possibility of a 14 day quarantine, we may do some short breaks in the U.K.
