Uke-o-vision Song Contest

18 May

Tonight sees the Eurovision Song Contest. Be prepared for plenty of cheesy numbers; sarcastic commentary & the usual regional block voting! Here is Jeff Meechai’s cover of the UK’s 1967 winning entry from Sandie Shaw, Puppet On A String:

    Well, Malta’s entry Tomorrow, by Gianluca, not only has a uke solo but is all about an IT person called Jeremy. Best so far!

      Dear Simon (and Jeanette!)

      I have arrived in London from Sydney with my ukelele (I emailed you about a month ago). I am staying with my sister Clare at [snip] I would like to attend tonight’s meeting of PLUC.

      Your website manager, whose name I have forgotten (but now I remember it’s Jeanette), said kindly that she would collect me on the way to the bus stop if I let her know when I arrived. I can be ready from 7.15pm onwards. I would really appreciate it if she is able to do this.

      Could she confirm either by email or phone if she is able to?

      Thanks and kind regards

        Hi Norah,

        Simon has forwarded me your email & I’ve just replied. In case you don’t see it, I’ll do my best to reach you by around 7.30pm. Make sure you bring an Oyster card / Travelcard to save cash on the bus fares (£2.40 each way otherwise – you’ll need exact money).

        See you later.
