Nine months. At the time of writing that’s how long the current WildscreW has been together.
I’ve been meaning to start this blog for quite a few months and now, finally getting around to it, I have the problem of how to cover the past. I’ve decided to make this, the first “sticky” blog entry, a general overview of the past year and in the future, the blogs which are concerned with the past, will be marked with FLASHBACK (UPDATE: A nice idea but in reality I’ve had more than my work cut out keeping up with daily entries).

Due to dire trade fair traffic in Frankfurt I just managed to arrive with two minutes to spare. Continue reading “Choir – rehearsal”
I met up briefly with Thomas over lunch and he confirmed, due to my lack of Whatsapp, that the ArztHosen rehearsal is tomorrow. Continue reading “ArztHosen – pre rehearsal”
