corn exchange

Readers of this blog will know how important  Georgie Fame was to Chelmsford mods.  He was a regular at the Corn Exchange in Chelmsford.  I have written before about him and those days.

So imagine my delight and excitement when music writer Val Wilmer invited me to a recording of Mastertapes for BBC Radio 4.  We strolled through the leafy streets of Maida Vale to the BBC studio, and then began a wonderful afternoon as he talked about his album Rhythm and Blues at the Flamingo.
