    MUSICAL CHEERS

    We met first in a wine bar off Oxford Street. I'd just been to a disastrous concert at the Wigmore Hall – a little-known Korean soprano in a Hugo Wolf song cycle. You can imagine! He came up to me, pointing to my concert programme.

    'Oh well, my dear. Some you win, some you lose, I suppose! Have a nice cool drink and forget all about it.'

    He ordered two glasses of Sancerre and we took them to a corner table. I don't usually accept drinks from total strangers but there was something disarming about him. He wore a bizarre assortment of clothes – a striped cricket blazer worn over a slightly grubby T-shirt, brown corduroy trousers and a pair of dirty, battered trainers. He was perhaps fifty, maybe older. He had short grey hair and a small moustache. The most attractive thing about him was his voice. It was warm and lilting. It had the sort of musical quality I associate with Ireland.

    'Things aren't what they were,' he sighed, sipping his wine, 'I remember the greats you know – Beecham, Sir Malcolm Sargent, von Karajan – you name them, I knew them. Anyway, cheers.'

    He raised his glass and we drank. I went to replenish our glasses.

    'So you're in the music business?' I inquired.

    'Me? Music is in my veins. It's the air in my lungs. It's the food in my stomach. Music? Me and music are like that.' And he interlaced his fingers to show me how close he and music were.

    'But do you play yourself?' I asked.

    'Not exactly play. I'm more in the broadcasting and recording area,' he confided, 'but I have an essential role in every performance,' he replied evasively. 'I've worked with them all – Zubin Mehta, Bernstein (now he was a lad, I can tell you), Arthur Rubenstein (a real ladies' man too), Pavarotti, Solti. There are plenty of stories I could tell you.'

    When we left to make our way to our separate homes, we agreed to meet again the following week. From then on, we met occasionally for about six months. But, despite our common interest in music, we never went to a concert together. I suggested it once, but he refused so violently that I never suggested it again.

    Yet, every time we met he would boast about his musical contacts.

    'I was on with Sir Neville Marriner last week,' he said, with a modest smile, 'and next week it's the Juillard. I'm busy every night. But they're all such lovely people; lovely…' His voice trailed off nostalgically.

    Now, I am not an especially curious person, but I have to admit that I was intrigued by Cheers. (When I had asked his name, he had told me, 'Just call me Cheers.') How did he come to know all these musicians so well? What did he do for a living? Who was he?

    Inevitably, one evening we did find ourselves at the same concert. It was at the Royal Festival Hall. I spotted him down in the front row, dressed in his inimitable style. He seemed very agitated. As the orchestra came to the end of the first half of the concert, I saw him leap up, clapping and cheering loudly, as close as possible to the BBC radio microphones recording the concert. I suddenly realized what his 'role' was.

    So, whenever you hear a live broadcast of a concert – think of 'Cheers'!

    1. THE POWER OF IMAGINATION

    Mr. Brown liked it in America, but he liked travelling too. He made trips to Europe and Asia and he visited India. Once after a long trip from England to America he arrived at a small country place. There was a small hotel there. Mr. Brown got to the hotel late in the evening. At the hotel he asked the receptionist whether there were any vacant rooms there.

    At that moment another traveller came to the hotel and asked the receptionist for a room too. The receptionist checked if there were any vacant rooms. The only vacant room he could offer was a double room.

    "Will it be convenient to you if you share the room?" the receptionist asked. "It'll be less expensive for you, you'll each pay half the price."

    At first they didn't like the idea, but just then it began raining heavily and they were too tired to go to another hotel. They spoke to each other and told the receptionist that they agreed to spend the night in one and the same room.

    A porter showed them to their room, took in their things and wished them good night. Soon the two men went to bed.

    Suddenly Mr. Brown heard some noise. He opened his eyes but didn't see anything. It was quite dark.

    "What's the matter?" Mr. Brown asked in surprise. The second traveller answered, "I'm very sorry, I had to wake you up. I'm not well. Please, open the window quickly."

    Mr. Brown got out of bed and began looking for matches, but he couldn't find them in the dark, so he tried to find the window. It took him some time and at last he thought he had found it. He couldn't open the window. As the voice of the traveller was becoming weaker and weaker, Mr. Brown took a chair and broke the window with it. The man said he felt much better. After that the two of them slept until morning.

    When they woke up the next morning they were surprised to see that Mr. Brown had broken to pieces not a window but a large mirror.
