Anyone familiar with the comments on this blog will know of my delight when an 'inadvertent stranger' hears one (or more) of my songs and has a positive response

And of all the various possible responses this kind takes the biscuit - which reminds me that the song which brought this particular stranger to my door was arranged by 'the biscuits' (aka Mags Russell and John Saich of The song is THE HOUSE WITH THE WINDOWS

Also from 'the stranger' came the title for this post: well not directly from him but from a pal he had invited (not sure if it would be his cup of tea) to have a listen to some of my material And it was the pal who had described it as 'Earl Grey with a twist of lemon'

But that is not all: the stranger (who is becoming less of one every day) first heard the song on the Iain Anderson Show and followed up by contacting the program and saying so And the song may be played again next week 

The link to the show is

The song, which belongs on the small CD MORE LIKE A RIVER THAN A ROAD can be heard on Bandcamp at
