Something for the Weekend – No 164

by duncanr

if you’re one of the half-dozen or so regular readers of madhatters, you will know by now that I have a somewhat weird eclectic taste in music

my first song for you to listen to this weekend is by Gaspar Nali in Malawi

And be sure to post your own favourite song(s) in the comment section to this post

instead, landlords are turning to other attractions to get customers through their doors

well I’m getting an a bit but I’m not one to . . . Continue reading
