I first became aware of Mr Packham's behaviour when I saw the Smiths clip - http://tinyurl.com/packhamsmiths - about a year ago. "Magic", I thought, this kinda shit being right up my street.

Then came the Manics one - http://tinyurl.com/packhammanics - I had a wee google on the off chance that he had done anyone else, dream gig being The Cure, as my wife-to-be (as she was at the time) is a MASSIVE fan of them.

Could not believe my fucking eyes when I found out about this. Thanks to the magic of a certain website and a handy cut-out-and-keep 'tracklisting' on the BBC site - http://tinyurl.com/packhamcure - I was ready to go.

Thought it would make an ideal wedding present to her but alas I didn't manage get my shit together before we got married. This is kinda the midpoint between the wedding and The Cure's Reflections gig that she's off to in a few weeks so it seems appropriate.

Lorna - if I ever see an episode of Springwatch again it'll be too soon, but it was worth every second of every hour. X

Chris - in the unlikely event of you reading this - many thanks, cap duly doffed, you are a star! But - please avoid any future Depeche Mode references or I'm fucked. Couldn't go through all that again...
