    The healing power of the BC 8500 a rook and a CD

    After a long car journey, and an even longer working week away from home, my tatty uncomfortable sofa welcomed me with its obtrusive springs and worn leather arms. The wind & rain howled through the living room window, I realised at this point Britain's summer had ended after a fortnight. I still felt wafts of rage, as i recalled the German & Swedish Speeding Conspiracy Society travelling on the M11 behind, next to and trying to shunt  my inferior & economical French car pushing me further toward the hard shoulder, the inner lane looked inviting but I was actually travelling at a compatible speed. My wife was at work untill late, and so I sank deeper into a feeling of "Is this all life has to offer me". Then glancing down I noticed the elegent form of my ageing Beolink 1000. It invited itself into my hand, and I depressed the keys randomly, uncertain as what would be on the radio section of my BC 8500 on a Friday evening.

    What angelic sounds then infused my room and ears, an 'unknown band' was playing on number two. I had been given a ride on an emotional roller coaster. My day, my week where now a distant memory, the song ended and the presenter muttered the word 'Rook', and 'Shearwater'. I spent the next morning in HMV, and found to my delight this was Shearwaters latest album 'Rook', with a catalogue of previous albums, including The Dissolving room, Thieves, Palo Santo, Everybody makes mistakes and Winged Life all available on CD to play on my BC 8500, what joy I have found, I will never feel that low again. Smile I emplore you all have a listen you wont be dissapointed. Smile Matt

    Yes, they are quite good. Dont get much of an audience over here in the US which is a shame.
