UK TV CLASSIC: THE LENNY HENRY SHOW (DELBERT WILKINS) – SEASON 1

Some of my younger readers probably won’t even remember this show and comedian Lenny Henry’s comic creation the hilarious Delbert Wilkins (some of you probably weren’t even alive then). But if you are in your thirties or older you will definitely remember this show. Delbert Wilkins is a loud, brash  and over the top DJ who constantly puts down his side kick Winston (played by Vas Blackwood) and has his own successful show on the fictional pirate radio station The Brixton Broadcasting []

‘LOVE & HIP HOP’ – THE UK VERSION APPARENTLY COMING SOON…..

When I first spotted the news on Twitter (where it all goes down these days) that there were plans to make a UK version of the hit US VH1 “reality” show Love & Hip Hop I thought it was a joke (I still do). But  they are in the process of casting for the show.

UK MUSIC: CHERRI VONCELLE – ‘I MISS YOU’ (NAS DAUGHTERS REFIXX)

… This is why I grow to despise the UK music industry more and more as each day passes. Artists like Cherri Voncelle and Vula Malinga  to name but a few are talented, they can SING their backsides off and make good music, but industry executives in this country still continue to sign and push female singers to the forefront whose vocals/talent pale in comparison (An unfair decision usually based on race and on who they consider “marketable”). Anyway I like Cherri’s ‘I Miss You’ and I like how she sings in an English accent and then switches. Your thoughts please. Hit or []
