Cherry Tree Beer Festival, and Fred Visits The Swan, Brome and Yaxley, Suffolk - 5th February 2011

It's the Yaxley Cherry Tree's beer festival, then there are various walks around the Oaksmere, and then Fred gets an all-access tour of the bar at The Swan in Brome. Before that, there's a photo of Nosher's home-made media player, which was built in around 2004. It was an old-ish PC motherboard stuffed into a stripped-out Yamaha CDX-500E CD player, with a soundcard and a network connection. The CD's control buttons werer actually wired into the keyboard controller and could skip up and down or pause, stop and play, via a custom media client written in Perl. It was quite handy, although the noisy external ATX power supply was a bit of a pain.

next album: Fun Lovin' Criminals at the UEA, The BBs Rehearse, and Thornham Walks, Norwich and Suffolk - 14th February 2011
previous album: Pizza in Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk - 30th January 2011
