Went with Sir Owen Gee to give him my monthly assistance at the radio station in Albufeira, Portugal. Besides providing my usual Seawatch and weather reports, on this morning we had special guest, Ian Carfrae, formerly of the New Vaudeville Band, whose songs, Winchester Cathedral and Peekaboo, were top ten hits in the 1970’s. He came with Chris Winstanley, the Director of the Algarvians Theatre Group. They came in to promote 'Pollen: The Musical' which Ian co-wrote with Robert Hay-Smith and the Algarvians Theatre Group were staging the European premiere of the musical. I have known Chris personally for some time and I recognized Ian whom I have bumped into on occasion. Anyway, I ended up buying tickets to the Gala Champagne Reception on opening night, 20th October. These tickets are more expensive at €20, more than the normal €12, but hey, still cheap.
So, today (Monday) I am writing two press releases for the local papers. One for 'Pollen: The Musical' and the other for the release of my 'A-Z of Animal Poems & Colouring Book' which I was greatly surprised to have over 1,600 people enter my Goodreads competition to win one of ten books I was giving away. I thought there may only be 1,000 entries at best, so I am well pleased.
