"Getting Older Every Day" - Big Bill Broonzy, 1940

For many reasons, I'm really starting to feel my age these days. As a result, I seem to be paying more attention to all that "You Know You're Getting Older If..." stuff.

I heard a really funny one on BBC Radio 2 the other day. I'm pretty sure it was on Ken Bruce's morning show.

Somebody suggested that you know you're getting old if, when you listen to the Beatles' song "She's Leaving Home", you realize that you are identifying more with the parents than with the daughter!

"Bye, bye..."

Meanwhile, I seem to have developed a craving for BBC Radio 4 on weekday mornings. And I no longer subscribe to "Rolling Stone".

Yikes. I'm turning into a grownup!
