Yay, it is Friday again, and Fandango has just published his Flashback Friday post. The idea is that he picks a post from this day in a previous year, to give newer readers a better insight into what makes him tick.
I have always liked that idea, so shall also post my own reminiscence. As much as anything, it reminds me of where I was, where I am now, and how far I have come. Hopefully, you will find it entertaining along the way.
It’s funny that Fandango’s Flashback post is on the subject of being dry, because looking through my own posts, I couldn’t find anything remotely sharable from this day in history.
But to save you going away empty-handed, I did post this short piece of classical music, by Malcolm Arnold, a year and a day ago. He was heavily into writing film scores (he wrote the score for the Oscar-winning Bridge on the River Kwai), and you can hear this in the music – it’s very reminiscent of a British movie of the Fifties or Sixties. I studied music as a schoolboy and this is one that stuck with me ever since.
