As I thrill to the magic charms

Still coming down to earth after the mind-blowing Follies in Concert we went to last night at the Royal Albert Hall (more on that later, no doubt!), we have a double celebration today. Over at the Dolores Delargo Towers Museum of Camp, we pay due homage to the remarkable Miss April Ashley, who is blowing out 80 candles on her cake.

And here, we have a centenary to mark - that of Donald Mills of those fantabulosa harmonists/vocal impressionists The Mills Brothers. Here are the boys, tootling away on a marvellous rendition of Caravan, while their audience sets about impressing the laydeez with some fancy footwork. What better way to nurse a hangover..?

Happy birthday, Donald Mills (29th April 1915 – 13th November 1999)
