I heard this yesterday morning, he made me smile :-) It was great to hear Lewisham being mentioned in a blues song!

Well done Billy, for putting Lewisham on the map.

Billy Jenkins is awesome - FACT. The wit and charm heard on Midweek is a true reflection of the man. I had the honor some years ago of devising and delivering a music and drama project for local kids. They loved him and so did I. A true Lewisham man.
