Midnight Train To Georgia

The director of last night's Corrie was named Pip Short.

This name takes me back to a few years ago when I had the wit of Oscar Wilde. Now, of course, it's Marty Wilde.

"Do you think," I said then, "Gladys Knight's Pips resembled the Greenwich Mean Time pips? Five short ones and a long one?"

Those were golden days, the like of which I'll never see again.


  1. Perhaps it's the Midnight Train to Georgia Taylor...Corrie's Toyah Battersby.

  2. Gladys probably noticed Pip Short as well. "Knight's are drawing in, then".

    Just recycle your old material without mentioning it's recycled. You could be the new Jimmy Carr.

  3. Didn't Marty Wilde win the 'Perrier award'? Or perhaps it was Kim.

    *Baby don't Change your Mind* is still one of my guilty pleasures.

  4. MJ - I miss Toyah. Georgia's always on my mind.

    Murph - I could sell it to Ken Dodd.

    Kaz - It was Marty's black "hair" that had them rolling in the aisles. You shouldn't feel guilty for liking any Van McCoy songs.
