The chatroom will be open today between 10AM and 12PM (UK).
If you’re new to the chatroom, don’t be shy. It’s easy to register and even easier to use.
The answer to yesterday’s Name That Tune teaser was… ‘Time’. Well done if you guessed correctly. Today’s screenshot is surely too easy, but there’ll be more Name That Tune next week. I know you love it almost as much as you loved Blotto.
If you’re in the UK, don’t forget that you can see ‘Three Men In A Boat’ tonight at 9PM (UK) on Discovery Real Time. That’s channel 250 on Sky and 271 on Virgin TV.
If you missed it the first time, it’s about three comedians (Dara O’Briain, Griff Rhys-Jones and Rory McGrath) journeying up the Thames in a rowing boat, as they seek to recreate the journey immortalised by Jerome K. Jerome in his 1889 comedy classic of the same name.
They drop in on David’s houseboat-studio, Astoria, for a chat.
Thanks to Roger for letting us know about the repeat broadcast, and do keep an eye on the calendar for more of the same.
What were your two favourite tracks to play on this tour (one from ‘On an Island’ and one from the Floyd back catalogue)? (Geoff Duffy)
‘Take a Breath’ and ‘Echoes’.
What is the most challenging ‘On an Island’ or Gilmour composition for you to play? (Andrew)
‘Where We Start’, because the chords require continually extending your fingers. Although, ironically, trying to play a simple tune like ‘Wish You Were Here’ EXACTLY as David plays it proved to be a challenge! After a few lessons in his kitchen, I’m almost there!
