Had a great time yesterday returning to Longcroft School in Beverley, where I recorded the gospel vocals that feature on True Believer (off the new album), courtesy Longcroft School Gospel Choir…all inspired by this heartwarming impromptu session (see link) that happened at a workshop at the school last year. Once I saw this on someone’s Facebook, I realised that I HAD to get the choir on the album  https://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=4244583491116

So yesterday I was back at the school to film a BBC TV “Look North” piece (see pic above) that was aired last night (iplayer link below is only available today, I believe). I especially love the introduction (30 secs in…to be said in an Alan Partridge-type voice):  … “…and coming up, the 80’s pop star who swapped Top of the Pops for an East Yorkshire classroom”…on iplayer, http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/bigscreen/tv/episode/b03w63tb .
