And on to today's Royal Wedding... well I should have been. However, like a fool I forgot to offer my services as the Royal Wedding DJ - you would have thought with the amount of self-promotion I do, I would have at least got that one sorted!

Seriously, what do you reckon the odds are that there was a DJ inside Buckingham Palace today? Precisely what I thought. I would imagine it was all canapes and string quartets and if they were lucky some live band playing some of those 'old' favourites. I mean, had I been there I have Three Degrees and Tina Turner records (that would have pleased Charles). Trouble is.... I'm not sure they'd have appreciated a jazz funk set!

Speaking of the wedding - Wow! Kate's sister - sexy or what in that dress! And I'm not the type of guy who even notices that sort of thing!

Well, I'm gonna go and take a look at my diary to see what I have booked for next year - The Queen will have been on the Throne for 60 years next year - perhaps I should send them my card and a few links to my radio shows now and get in early...
