Please send in requests tonight and I will search the archives for the morning.

Jethro have you done your exercises?

And in case no one knows it :-

Forty years on, when afar and asunder
Parted are those who are singing today,
When you look back, and forgetfully wonder
What you were like in your work and your play,
Then, it may be, there will often come o'er you,
Glimpses of notes like the catch of a song -
Visions of boyhood shall float them before you,
Echoes of dreamland shall bear them along,

Chorus
Follow up! Follow up! Follow up! Follow up! Follow up!
Till the field ring again and again,
With the tramp of the twenty-two men.
Follow up! Follow up!

Routs and discomfitures, rushes and rallies,
Bases attempted, and rescued, and won,
Strife without anger, and art without malice, -
How will it seem to you, forty years on?
Then, you will say, not a feverish minute
Strained the weak heart and the wavering knee,
Never the battle raged hottest, but in it,
Neither the last nor the faintest, were we!

Chorus

O the great days, in the distance enchanted,
Days of fresh air, in the rain and the sun,
How we rejoiced as we struggled and panted -
Hardly believable, forty years on!
How we discoursed of them, one with another,
Auguring triumph, or balancing fate,
Loved the ally with the heart of a brother,
Hated the foe with a playing at hate!

Chorus

Forty years on, growing older and older,
Shorter in wind, as in memory long,
Feeble of foot, and rheumatic of shoulder,
What will it help you that once you were strong?
God give us bases to guard or beleaguer,
Games to play out, whether earnest or fun;
Fights for the fearless, and goals for the eager,
Twenty, and thirty, and forty years on!

Chorus


But usually only performed in them posh schools in the big cities loike Worcester.

"For she invented medicinal compound

It all fits.

Medicine - Gin......................

You know hippo, our old favourite - The Wurzels - did a cover of that hit, only it was about William Shakespear. 'Willie the Shake' -

"because he drank such, powerful potions,
that's why they called him,
the Immortal Bard..."

Well goooood morning Worcestershire!

Good to see Jethro has found our little pirate operation! We know the signal is a little in and out, but who can resist a little in and out from time to time, eh listeners? (old Two Ronnies material really IS making a comeback on Radio Worcestershire :o))

kk blames his neighbour Mrs Marconi and her line prop...

The hot news is that it's Ombersley village fete on Bank Holiday Monday and Throckmoroton rural revels on Saturday of Bank Holiday weekend...sounds like that's my long weekend sorted!

And now an 8 track for Mr and Mrs Jethro, it's Kenny and Metallica with a duet version of 'The Bump'

Laughed!

I nearly fell off the gate I was sitting last night.

Some bloke comes running, puffing past the lane by the farm wearing this lardy dah fancy clothing.

I said "where'd you get that and does your wife know your wearing it?"

He said he bought it in a shop in Worcester. Well I thought I'd seen and heard everything, but I reckon Worcestor is becoming more degenerate by the day. Fancy someone selling jessies clothing like that for running in,and to blokes!

What's the world coming to?

Crashie!

Sheep again?
