I still look back on the pleasure and experience I got playing for the ice skating at the Glaciarium down at the Railway when I was about 15, and it was so cold, we used to have to wear our pyjamas under our dinner suits, and gloves with the tops of the fingers cut out.
But that was very vital to me, and I was learning, and I love to learn, and I'll have a crack at anything that's going to maybe give me something that I'm desperately in need of musically. But I just like music. I love it. I love old music. Andrew Ford: So does it depend who you're playing with then, in a sense, and what they want to do, or who they are, or where they've come from?
I don't mean I'm an expert on every style or anything like that, or any style, but I just love to play, I love being part of it. I get a big buzz out of on Thursday nights in the brass band when we play hymns, it's just beautiful to hear the sound of a brass band, and I'm playing a part in it.
It's lovely music. So as long as it's music, I'm happy. Except I just would have no inclination whatsoever to play in a rock band, a rock 'n' roll band; it's too loud for me. I've played in a lot of big bands, 20 guys playing their heads off, it's only half as loud as a rock 'n' roll band of three people. But that I don't enjoy, that's for another generation to enjoy, that's just not my cup of tea. Andrew Ford: Well if there was anybody listening to this who was thinking of asking Don to join their rock band, don't bother.
Don Burrows, it's been lovely to talk to you again. Andrew Ford: I hope you enjoy your 80th birthday, I hope you're suitably feted. And we're going to hear you now in swing mode, along with the Mell-O-Tones. Jazz legend Don Burrows, 80 years old, discusses his long career in music.
Broadcast: Sat 9 Aug , am. Transcript plus minus. Andrew Ford: How young were you? Andrew Ford: You're 80, yes. Some very nice playing on that actually. Andrew Ford: How did that happen? Don Burrows: George Trevare rang me. Andrew Ford: He was the trombonist perhaps I should say. Andrew Ford: Now how did George Trevare know to ring a year-old? Andrew Ford: No, no, I'm sure you wouldn't.
Andrew Ford: So you graduated quickly to clarinet? Andrew Ford: I think we should listen to you play the flute Don Burrows: The flute, or the b-flat? Don Burrows: Am I playing that on the flute? Andrew Ford: You're playing with a guy called Stephane Grappelli. Don Burrows: Oh, gosh, oh, right-o. Andrew Ford: How can you tell? Don Burrows: Yes, but I've had that troubling me greatly lately since I was Andrew Ford: Really?
Don Burrows: Thanks a lot, Andrew. Don Burrows: Oh, right-o. Don Burrows: Yes, great. Andrew Ford: Thanks a lot, Don. Don Burrows: Thanks very much, Andrew. Credits plus minus. Presenter Andrew Ford. Producer Penny Lomax. Everything feels Wrong or not, I've had my first chance in months to really get out of town, keeping my social distance from people the entire time as I'm usually prone to do, anyway.
With new places come new pictures, and with new pictures come new updates. From the annals of Supermartifacts :. Bluefield High School yearbook, What else is new? With my magic archivist's powers, I was able to find a treasure trove of historic yearbook scans from the places I once called home. Combing through the lot, I was able to find 20 rare images to add to last month's magnum opus, all for the purposes of research and education: The History of School Transportation in Mercer County, WV.
This will probably be the end of updates for the project. My relationship with my home state is "difficult" to say the least, and I've wrestled with the implications for years.
But today, I want to be positive. For starters, "being a West Virginian" is something that not a lot of people are. It's unique. It's even more unique in Canada. I'd like to think that "being a West Virginian" endowed me with less materialism, and more determination and grit.
I'm proud that the state was founded by radical leftists who seceded from Virginia in opposition to the "Make Slavery Great Again" Confederacy. Romantic Sad Sentimental. Sexy Trippy All Moods.
