STEPPIN' THROUGH A TIME ZONE! - 1990
This section celebrates everything Moody Blues through providing an amazing factoid, a Moody myth-busting reality check and a daily question to test your knowledge of the band.
OUR GUESSING GAME - YESTERDAY'S ANSWER
In 1989, a poll of music radio presenters showed that veteran David Symonds favourite song was I Know You’re out There Somewhere, but what three other links does he have with the group? Symonds wrote liner notes for On the Threshold of a Dream, acted as MC for the Moodies’ 1969 Christmas BBC concert and recited Ray Thomas’s poem Reflective Smile for Long Distance Voyager.
HAVE YOU HEARD?
Did you know that Patrick Moraz was affectionately known as ‘the Swiss Poodle’ after the country of his birth and long, curly, King Charles II style of hair he wore?

It is quite peaceful, yet wild and Betjeman's poem does capture the essence of this, talking of sea fog coming in from Port Isaac Bay and enveloping the craggy countryside. The foreboding nature of (ex-BBC DJ) Mike Read's music too underpins the refreshing wilderness of a beautiful county.

It was too late to get the clunking video recorder set up though. In addition, they sang a brilliant version of Across the Universe which is probably my favourite Lennon-written Beatles song.
