Well, almost seven months later, a woman named Rose sent a comment on that post to TJI. She said, “Very well written the post.” and went on to suggest that, if you want to listen to BBC Radio on the iPhone, there’s an app called F-Stream that you can learn about on BBC Streams.
Anyway, I downloaded F-Stream from the iTunes store and tried it. The app enables you to listen to lots of stuff on the radio and, also, to record what you’re hearing. There are all kinds of stations and programming available.
It’s an excellent companion to the NPR iPhone app that, no matter where in the country you may be, enables you to listen to your favorite NPR station.
Now, because I (and so many of you) enjoyed Tom’s version of this song, here he is at Viña del Mar in Chile, in 2007, performing I like the way. It may not be a great video, but it’s lots of fun just to hear the song again.
As usual, if you cannot play it, drop me a line using the “Contact TJI” link at the bottom right and I’ll email it to you. JACKSONVILLE (AP) — Singer Tom Jones, who has millions of fans and packs them into concert halls, can recall in detail a meeting with one obscure Jacksonville fan, a woman who is blind.
“It made me realize that what I do onstage is more meaningful than I anticipated,” Jones said, recalling the time Cheryl Clark “saw” his face with her fingers.Miss Clark, an X-ray technician at Methodist Medical Center in Jacksonville (Florida), is blind for the fifth time in her life. The first came after unsuccessful surgery to remove tear ducts when she was 14.
Jones’ records, she said, helped her maintain her sanity when she was first losing her sight, long before she met him in person.They have met five times since, most recently last month in Louisville, KY. But the most special moment took place six years ago in Birmingham, AL at the second encounter.
Jones had remembered meeting Miss Clark backstage at a concert a year before in Dallas. At the time, he sight had been restored through implantation of a tiny telescopic prothesis.
In Birmingham, she was blind again. Her body’s immunity processes rejected the prosthesis. “During the concert, my mother tried to describe Tom to me, but I couldn’t hear the screaming woman,” Miss Clark said.
