  • Tim Walton says:

    How imaginative

    Even I could manage that and I don’t play any kind of keyboard.

    So could a five year old

    I hope no one had to pay to listen to it.

    • Mark Henriksen says:

      Needless to say, the organ was the star of that show.

    • MWnyc says:

      Don’t tell us: You could do Jackson Pollock’s paintings, too (and so could your five-year-old) …

      • Tim Walton says:

        Who’s Jackson Pollock?

        Is he someone who would appear at Tate Modern in London?

        I don’t go there as they seem to be unable to spell. It should, most of the time, be referred to at Tas Modern.

  • Tim Walton says:

    Sorry last bit should read Tat Modern
