I can see for miles, and miles, and miles. . . . . . . . . . .tunes that were sourced at a time when you had to put pen to paper, wait two weeks or more to receive them, and then play, just to hear for maybe only the second time a tune you heard first two or three weeks ago but couldn't get out of your head! Such tunes as these are gathered together by the collected addled minds of the Magic Theatre, "So What?" I hear you say, so what! so what? and we are back to Miles and Miles (Davis) Why not write in for a request? Griff's Magic Theatre, avoid the obvious and expect the unexpected!
