Letter To Kerry Michael, NewsRevue Pre-Run Submissions, 26 November 1995

The table of submissions was neat and tidy but the only way I can cut and paste it from Amipro to here, it needs to look like a great long list…

…but you’ll get the gist.


Dear Kerry

Great to have you back!! This starter pack consists some songs currently in the show, some previously unperformed ones and revamps of one or two which have come back into fashion as it were. 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.
