Lewis Floyd Henry Tribute Show 13th May 2012
My first show back was Sunday May 13th and I had booked a favourite of mine Lewis Floyd Henry. Lewis had been on my show twice last year so I was really looking forward to having him on a third time and finding out what he had been up to……. and I am still waiting. Lewis is normally early and will make cups of tea for everyone. Time was ticking past so I gave him a call.He was at his children’s sports day. Hard to be angry when he was being a good dad.He was hoping to get to the studio but it didn’t work out. After a moment of panic with only 20mins before going live on air I grabbed some c.d’s from my car and roped in my guitarist Sandy( who had only popped in to see Lewis) to do a bit of improv on Lee the engineers guitar. Lee has had the guitar in the boot of his car for years in case of an emergency and today was the first time it was needed. 12pm I was on air with my first show back not knowing what I was going to talk about but somehow the hour flew past and with the help of Lee and Sandy it turned out to be a good show back. Sandy did some great slide guitar too. I will re book Lewis but maybe as a pre record just to be on the safe side!
