Yesterday evening something weird happened. Whispering Bob (Bob Harris of Old Grey Whistle Test fame) was posting songs on Twitter, and I was watching them come up – not listening, I was listening to something else – when what should appear but My Beloved by Diana Jones. Which is one of my favourite songs, and it was on my list for the ‘Spill eleven songs game, so I clicked on the ‘view photo’ link and what then appeared was…not a picture of Diana Jones, but the photo of my grandson Jimmy which I’d put at the top of the ‘Spill post.
I was a bit unnerved. I emailed Blimpy, since he’s the expert in all things ‘Spill, but he’s puzzled too. We can’t think why, even if Whispering Bob had taken the track from the ‘Spill, the photo would’ve come with it. So the message is: be careful what you post on the ‘Spill, because it might go out to all Whispering Bob’s 25,000 followers.
Not all of them will have clicked on Jimmy’s picture though.
