I don’t often listen to the radio, but today it wafted in from the other room and I became aware of music. It was a song from the ’80’s being sung by Elvis Costello, and I remembered this funny little story.
When my daughter was small we often drove 50 miles to visit my parents. The boredom of the journey was alleviated by story tapes and the radio. Listening to the radio on just such a journey one of the Elvis classics was played, just being announced as by Elvis. A little voice from the back of the car asked ‘Is that Elvis Presley, or the real Elvis?’
I don’t remember what I said, but I know I giggled!
