Peanut Butter & Screamin' Jay Hawkins

I've recently developed a penchant for running and peanut butter. It's a bit of a yin/yang situation, I can't remember which came first but I'm hoping they balance each other out.  I've also been doing some volunteer work which I'll tell you more about another time.

In the music world:

BBC 6 Music has been saved from closure, for now.  Read all about it here.  So that day when hundreds of us hung out in the cold rain protesting the closure was all worth it in the end.  Well done!

The late great and totally eccentric Screamin Jay Hawkins has at last had At Last added to Spotify, listen here.  Coulda', Shoulda', Woulda' sends chills down my spine, soo good! I thoroughly adore so much of his music and would have loved to have seen one of his crazy live shows.  If you did, it would be great to hear about it.

Here's some footage of him performing 'I Put A Spell On You' (which he wrote).  Keep an eye on the hand on the piano.
