To add salt to the wound of greed Bernie Ecclestone gets interviewed, though he can hardly speak and BBC2 Jamie gets to play shite from his new album. Admittedly this could have been worse if Jools was able to tinker his ivories and ebonies....

Used to love watching the Jools Holland show.

Lost interest in it years ago, when it appeared to go too mainstream (and he became too annoying).

Once upon a time it was a great source for new music.
Im not sure if it stopped doing that... or the advent of 6Music and streaming put paid to that role?

Not sure at all about the co'hosting rubbish but, more importantly, the music this series has been appalling. Not seen it all yet but the names I am yet to see are generaly of zero interest.

Is it a deliberate musical change?

I rarely watch but caught a bit a few weeks ago. It was Simon Le Bon's daughter (pretty sure) and my God she was awful. Some dreary whining noise and that put me off listening to any more!

I thought she may be his daughter but I now don't think she is. All I do know is that she is Welsh. I thought she was so intriguing that I have one of her albums waiting to be opened at Christmas. It's funny old world. :)

By the way how old is old? :?

Presume you mean Cate Le Bon (I looked this up at the time!)......

"Born Cate Timothy, she credits her stage name to "a joke that went too far". The specifics are forgotten but she thinks she was watching the Brit awards one year and Simon Le Bon was on. Her boyfriend and bandmate, Huw Evans, who records in his own right as H Hawkline, was helping her to make a poster for a show. He put on the surname as a tease "and it stuck"."

Old is about 10 years older than you actually are at any given time...

😂😂😂😂

Which means you are at least 40, as younger than that is increasing less all the way down to 1 year for 4 year olds 😉

Yeah, not by that much though... can probably work out from the mid-80s baseline to my football memories!

I think when you’re a bit further down the age scale, you can probably replace with “old is about 10 years older than your parents are”...

All parents are old to kids until you start fancying friends' mothers :|

And you know you're old when it is their daughters 😨

Youth is wasted on the young.

My only wish would be for a less creaky and falling apart body....
