Kirsty MacColl RIP - it'll be the 9th anniversary of her death in a couple of days. Still can't believe her murderer got away absolutely scot-free.

(I also fancied her something rotten even though she was a good 13 years older than me).
I'll make you all a nice christmas mix you can play on christmas eve

(actually, I prefer this classic if I had to chose my favourite Louis Armstrong Track, but it's more of an all year round favourite - improved only slightly by The Ramones.)
