WNTV: DARK SIDE OF THE MOON AT JAMSTAND

Saturday saw the first 'Jamstand' concert at the riverside band stand, the highlight of which was Totem Pole's performance of Pink Floyd's 'Dark Side of the Moon'.

Amplified music at the bandstand is currently a sore point with one or two residents located close to the building but it is this, as well as the other events which Ross needs to keep the tourists visiting the town. A special licence had to be arranged so that 'Jamstand' could take place, the arranging of which took time, allowing only two weeks advertising. That two weeks advertising however produced quite an audience, with people coming and going throughout the day and a good many turning up specially for the finalé.

Having loved the music of Pink Floyd since my school days and their first single, 'Arnold Layne', I spent the whole afternoon and evening at 'Jamstand', which was arranged by local musician, Jack Baldus and filmed the whole show, from beginning to end.

You can watch the whole 'Dark Side' performance in three parts below the top photo and I will run some of the other film in next week's edition of 'Wyenot News'. The film was made on stage, rather than out in the audience and as a result, the sound was picked up from the band's monitors rather than the properly mixed sound as heard by the audience. The sound of the electricity generator can be heard at times during the quiet moments but over all, it still gives a good idea of the terrific atmosphere of the evening.

More photos of other 'Jamstand' acts can be seen on page 4 of this week's news.

Well done, Jack!

THE WYENOT NEWS DEADLINE

The absolute deadline for Wyenot News stories and other items is 12:00, midday on Tuesday, for inclusion in the following day's edition.

PLEASE NOTE HOWEVER: This is an absolute deadline and not the time I am asking for articles to be sent in. Mondays and Tuesdays here at 'Wyenot News' are Hell with by far, the most events I cover occurring at the weekend. The photography that the public sees happening is only one tiny part of the whole picture (please excuse the pun) of running this weekly news publication and the bits of prep that people do not see, are actually the most time consuming part of getting the story out.

If at all possible, please send your story in as early as you can, rather than wait until the very last minute, so that I can have at least a fighting chance of getting to bed before 3:00 am every Tuesday and Wednesday morning after what has lately become two 18 hour working days on the trot.

Thank you very much for your understanding and help.

Alan
