The forces' sweetheart, eh? Get me a medium and we'll call up my grandad and ask him what he thinks. He was never very impressed, to say the least...

'We'll Meet Again' by The Byrds = classic.

Dunno, but I luv the Andrews Sisters, esp. "Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree"

"We'll Meet Again" by The Byrds is a weird thing.

I was amazed to find out she's still alive - she cropped up in the news just recently to comment on something or other.

Brief clip of her on Kevin Greening's Radio 5 Live show this afternoon within two minutes of a brief clip of Roots Manuva. These must surely be the last days ...

Apropos, sort of, just saw Noises Off and there is funny joke about someone being like Myra Hess playing through an air raid.

Happy 100th birthday, Vera. Can we find at least one actual classic she's made? My grandfather, a traveling entertainer who was conscripted, suffered from shell shock and was an itinerant worker who suffered flashbacks for the rest of his life - he used to say that "everyone hated her" but clearly he wasn't really speaking for "everyone" really.

My grandmother hated her as well. I can remember her saying "sweet-heart of the forces? more like a common old knocker!".

I can confirm, from my grandparents via my mother, that no-one rated her.
