Diamanda and Doris

I was pleased to find out today that the Diane Pernet of pianos, Diamada Galas, is, like myself a big fan of Doris Day; or as she puts it, "...Doris Day. Love her. Best legato in the business." You can find out more about this perhaps, unexpected adoration, in Arthur Magazine. I had a very nice chat with Nellie McKay in a trailer not so long ago, and it transpires she is also a fan of Ms Day; though I suppose that's less surprising isn't it?

La JohnJoseph, have you seen this video of Nellie doing a song about The Cavendish hotel?

A delightful song! But personally I prefer the nearby Grange Langham, and it's superlative bar, "Vino Latino".
