A Pre Run Offering To John Random, Covering Letter, 23 October 1993

A letter to John Random dated 23 October 1993, which, to my regret and subsequently also to Random’s, did not succeed in placing one of my favourite songs, She’s So Moral (about Mother Teresa) – click here for the song lyrics :



Dear John

I enclose your starter pack of lyrics and tape for my offerings.  The pack includes some rewrites of older ones and some that have been cruelly overlooked before but still have life in them.  I haven’t included any chestnuts from earlier runs, but if you want one that you remember, just let me know.

Please do call me and let me know if you are short of any subjects or styles and I shall try to oblige.  Also, if any of these need a bit of rewrite then I shall be happy to change them on request.

I shall try to write some new ones for you over the next 10 days or so if the inspiration comes.

See you soon.
