If you listened to Time Warp this morning, I played a song from Meryn Cadell and mentioned that the artist now chooses to live life as a male.

Here's Cadell's official journal. This is the first post where he speaks of his female to male transformation. Here's another section of the journal where he answers questions from fans and the curious.


Ex-members of the Jam will play at show at the Crofoot on February 5th. Bruce Foxton and Rick Buckler have recruited Russell Hastings and Dave Moore for a Jam "reunion" of sorts. Hugh Cornwell from the Stranglers will open up the show. Tickets are on sale now.

Noticably absent from the reunion is Paul Weller. Weller nixed the idea of a reunion, telling the BBC, "that will never, ever happen. Me and my children would have to be destitute and starving in the gutter before I'd even consider that...it still means something to people and a lot of that's because we stopped at the right time, it didn't go on and become embarrassing."
