Amazing things about April 23:
» To the surprise of absolutely no one, several former guests on The Jerry Springer Show claimed that the programme was staged on this day in 1998. Interestingly, there is currently an opera version of the show on in London.
» Color Me Bad appeared as themselves in an episode of Beverly Hills 90210. Looking frighteningly ugly and dressed like pimps, presumably.
» Lee Majors, who we loved in The Fall Guy, is 62 today. Shakespeare was born on this day in 1564. Little has been heard of the once-popular playwright in recent years, but we feel sure the forthcoming One True Voice single, Shakespeare Way With Words, will rectify that situation.

According to Marxist theory, cultural forms such as opera, classical music and the literary works of Shakespeare all fall under the heading of high culture. Low culture refers to a wide variety of cultural themes that are characterised by their consumption by the masses.
We might not be Marxists, but we do know we loved Footballers Wives. If you do too, you'll know what this is all about.
