Episode Summary

We always hail the taxi straight off the street which means the cabbies know nothing about the sessions until about five minutes before we start. Once we've pulled them over, we talk them through the slightly weird premise and explain how it'll all work. And right then, just as we've done that bit, there is always the moment. It's the moment when the cabbie pauses, ever so briefly, before giving us the verdict. does he think we're complete jokers? Sometimes. But on the whole the London cab driver is a fine breed indeed. By and large they are game, up for it and just terrific sports. And then of course, there is Mike, our cabbie for this session. He practically bit our arm off he was so keen. We loved that. He was a massive music fan. And we loved that too. And he's got a young kid who is just starting to learn music. And we loved that too too. In fact, his kid is learning a couple of instruments which just happen to be the guitar and the violin. How handy then that we've got two such fine musicians, Cathy and Simon, playing said instruments on the back seat of his old man's motor. So to mike the cabbie - thanks a million for having us. and to mike's son - keep up the practising, and we'll see you for a black cab session in a few years.moreless
