Mithering on the Trent anorak, Ray Smythe, and his partner of six years, Harriet Finknottle, are still arguing about his taste in experimental jazz, and his collection of rare and obscure jazz titles.

'Honestly,' said Harriet 'I like some jazz, and Michael Buble will always cheer me up, and maybe a bit of Norah Jones when I am in the mood for romance, but his album of Van Morrison covers played by Nelly Heppingthwaite using a type-writer, a tea-spoon and a hoover, that is the music of nightmares.'

Ray told us: 'Really, I hate experimental jazz as much as Harriet does, but I lied about it on our first date, and now I really can't back down from it. I hate spending time in dusty charity shops looking for vinyl from the 1940s with Happenstance Jones and his songs for a good time on the cover, or my favourite one Big Hits from the Dick Handler quartet.'

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
