There has been an attempted armed robbery in a bookmakers in Plymouth.

Though it wasn't said in the headline, I could tell from the picture that it was an English south coast port.

They all look very similar, I thought to myself, -- Portsmouth, Plymouth, Southampton -- all 1950s and 60s, seemingly put up in a hurry, with an odd speck of an older building cropping up in the oddest of places.

Not so odd when you think about it. History really is everywhere, isn't it? Thinking of all that heartache monumentalised in those flat rooved pebble dashed wide parades.

Here's some C20th music which I've liked recently that's more Radio 3 than Radio 6.

I believe other radio stations are available, though goodness knows why, :-).

  • The Sinking of The Titanic -- Gavin Briars
  • Popcorn Superhet Receiver - Jonny Greenwood
  • Different Trains -- Steve Reich
  • WTC 911 -- Steve Reich
  • Threnody to the Victims of Hiroshima -- Krzysztof Penderecki

Oddly, the disaster connection in many of these is something that's only apparent when I type them in now.

As far as recentish charts are concerned, Sweet Nothing by Calvin Harris and Florence Welch is a favourite.
