This Saturday morning (16th July ) at 10.30 am on BBC Radio 4 "Barry in Weimar" will be transmitted through the wireless into millions, um perhaps thousands of unsuspecting homes.
Well who should be a guest on this show but only myself with the wonderful Jeremy Limb at the piano. The recording was made in April and Lord knows why I didn't write about it earlier.
The recording session was done at a friend's house in Belgravia (sorry for the location name drop but it's not my house) Barry, Hannah the producer, Jeremy and I were hard at it for at least an hour. All I can say is that Barry (without warning) graced us with the presence of the great Dame Edna herself. She was so funny I was reduced to tears of laughter. I was a wreck. Hannah the producer said it was best if I leave the room for a minute to compose myself.
Dame Edna and I sang Spoliansky's "I am a Vamp" as a duet. Barry is a wonderful, generous comedian and it was an honour to work with such a legend.
Melinda, Barry & Jeremy
