Alfie: Road thoughts #2

19 May

The tracks on my MP3 player (that I play through the battery powered, 10 metre range, FM transmitter to my car radio) are not necessarily all personal favourites but are all songs I enjoy in one way or another from the last 50 years or so.

They are played with the selection set to “random”.

This morning, as it was a lovely sunny morning and I had time to spare, I went the “pretty way” to work – that is, no motorways or even dual carriageways – just country roads, scenery, very little traffic and a few small villages.

So, window down, sunglasses on, music playing loud and cruising comfortably – get the picture?

Why then when I’m proceeding slowly and with due care and attention past a village school does Wonderful Radio Alfie invariably select something by Gary Glitter?

The LOOKS I get from the Yummy Mummies at the school gates!!

Fortunately, none of them would dream of whipping out a mobile phone camera and snapping me with it – producing a camera outside a school would get them torn to shreds by the other parents before any explanation could be proffered. So that’s OK then!

Oh, the times we live in!

    I was once carrying a large tranny (the radio – not the Ford van or person of altered-gender) along a street and just as I passed a large woman, Jerry Lee Lewis’ “Chantilly Lace” started up.

    “HEL-LLLO, BA-AAABY!”

    Her look would have withered a lesser man than I.
