East Side Story

It goes without saying that I'm usually a man of utmost discretion, but I can't keep my von Trapp shut about this any longer.

I've been contacted by a television company who want to make Ramsgate! - The Musical. I kid you not. Here's what their representative said:

I’ve been reading your blogs and they’re very informative and funny (natch). I’d love to talk to ‘real people’ in regards to Ramsgate and the lack of or may be not community spirit, what they think Ramsgate is missing and how successful do they think a musical project such as ours would work bringing different sides of the community together.

I really need to speak to key people that have opposing opinions as well. Youth Leaders, prominent business men busy bodies etc. We have visited the Newington Area and were particularly interested in working with the residents there as well as the wider area of Ramsgate.

Can you sing Richard and would you be interested in taking part in this project? You could use your real name and there would be no need to mention Richard Eastcliffe at all.


Hmmm. Well, obviously I can sing. I wouldn't have been voted TV Times Entertainer of the Year (1989) if I couldn't. I'd better have a word with Bev, my agent.

What was that Abraham Lincoln quote Bob Dylan adapted in his song? You can fool some of the people some of the time ....... but seriously Newington needs all the help it can get - doesn't Councillor Turncoat live up that way somewhere? He'd make a good Munchkin, wouldn't he?

Richard I have just discovered youtube is not something to do with trains or toothpaste and have started putting up musical videos http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=GZfeqQ80Ug0 Etc. perhaps this could be of some help with Ramsgate the Musical.
