Finally, a listener has chid me for not noting the one hundredth birthday of Dame Vera Lynn on March 20th.
Shame on me indeed. Not only is Dame Vera a great British patriot and an emblem of resistance to tyranny, she was also my Dad's favorite singer. Mum used to joke that he was in love with her; I wouldn't have blamed him if he had been.
The nation that Dame Vera helped to save has since destroyed itself by mass immigration of blacks and Muslims; but that's not her fault. It was a lovely nation when it still existed; I am old enough to remember it.
Here's wishing many more years of life to Dame Vera. She's still sprightly and energetic; in fact, to mark her hundredth, she has put out a new album Vera Lynn 100, which you can buy from Amazon. I hope you will; I just did.
