Black Cab Sessions - Calexico (and a little story about a black cab)

Joey Burns from Calexico is the latest artist to receive the 'Black Cab treatment' and it's a pretty good one. Fresh from just having played a concert, Joey jumped into the back of the cab and strummed out 'Not Even Stevie Nicks'.

Here's a little story about a London Black Cab.

Three weeks ago, a friend of mine took a black cab home from a post work night out in London. When she woke up the next day she realised the brand new laptop she had looked after so carefully throughout the evening was gone, no where to be seen. Slowly resigning herself to the fact that she was probably never going to see it again, she thought it was worth at least reporting it to the Transport for London lost property department incase it was handed in. Low and behold three weeks later she received a call from them saying her laptop had turned up and as I'm sure you can imagine, she was pretty happy.

Now doesn't this story restore your faith in people just that little bit?

So to anyone who lives in London or is planning to visit, if you misplace anything in a black cab (or any form of public transport in London), it's worth contacting Transport For London. As my friend has proved, sometimes the system can work.
