    I'm over half way through the Bernie Gunther novels and will now have to savour every sentence as there will be no more.

    Morning Ireland reporting that 'Big Tom' McBride of Big Tom and the Mainliners has died. My dad's favourite singer. Never seemed to be off local radio when I was a kid.

    I so want that to be true!

    Edit.
    Despite my efforts to appear an urbane sophisticate, Mary Wilson's show on Radio 1 has just namechecked the tiny Rossie townland where I grew up in her tribute to Big Tom. You can take the boy from the country etc....
