Nordoff Robbins quiz

I joined David Stark in his team of Songlink Saboteurs tonight at the Grand Connaught Rooms in Covent Garden for the annual Nordoff Robbins Music Quiz, an event for the hardened pop music buff. Following a welcome drinks reception, sponsored by Jack Daniels, an introduction to the proceedings was given by host Mark Goodier and dinner was served. Our team of ten was positioned right under the speakers and screens on one side of the banqueting room, on table 8, and I am delighted to report that after ten testing rounds, we won the competition! Teams left in our wake included runners-up Ministry of Sound, Warner Music, Spotify, CAA, Coda, Universal Music, Wise Budduh and PPL. I was a mere spectator for most of the quiz as the Saboteurs contained some extremely knowledgeable souls: Larry Foster, Rebecca Bradshaw, Brian Kotz, Tony Barton, Paul Barber, Paul Kramer, Tansy Diplock and Ellis Rich as well as our skipper, David. Champagne all round!
