    All,

    In a bit of a quandry.... I was looking at training it to Birmingham but I have worked out the last one back to Derby leaves at 11pm :roll: :roll:

    Now then, I can fit plenty of beer in before then (that isn't the problem!) but *if* we *might* be playing live at 10.28pm it isn't likely I am going to get the train that evening is it? :cry:

    So.... does anyone know any really really cheap places to park in Brum City centre 'cos even though I used to work around there I haven't a clue!

    Info on this and also any clarification on wether we are live/recorded would be of assistance, cheers.

    Oh yeah, this is to give me some peace!!! ;-) ;-)Many thanks to members of Matlock Band, Carlton Brass and Long Eaton band who have sponsored myself and Kirstie :lol:

    Will that do ya :wink: ?

    I thought it was pre-recorded to go out at 10.28, but I don't know. Mods...

    I've spoken to John this evening and it's more than likely that the 10.28 p.m. slot will be a pre-recorded session.

    :wink:

    It might be worth asking the BBC about parking, *or anyone local!!) cos anyone who is travelling down is going to have to contend with city centre parking. The Pallasades is where I used to go but it isn't the cheapest.

    I think I will still go on train then. If there is a problem Kirstie and I will take over your house squeaky! :lol: Don't worry, we'll let you pitch a tent in your garden :wink:

    Cheers guys!

    Now I have a choice.... do I go in car or go on train knowing I could be accosted by a trombone player? :lol:

    Still, both are better than hi-jacking squeaky's I guess :lol:
