Letter To Denise Thomson/Orita With April-May 1995 NewsRevue Submissions, 19 April 1995

I think this artefact speaks for itself. All of the lyrics listed are up or will go up in the fullness of time.

Amipro tables don’t convert into anything, so I have tried to turn the nice neat table thingie into a legible list. Best efforts blah blah.

Dear Denise

This starter pack consists of songs currently in the show but mainly previously unperformed ones. If you want me to work on a rewrite of an old chestnut of mine that you might have uncovered in the archive, just let me know.

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 am happy to change them on request.

Good luck and I look forward to seeing you soon.
