Farewell John Laws

It’s hard to believe, but after all these years John Laws has switched off the golden microphone, hung up the golden headphones, and set off for his retirement with his wife Caroline.

I can’t think of any more fitting way to say goodbye to Lawsie, than by running the Musician Of The Week award early. Roger Miller, and the feature song is the one Lawsie has signed off with for years and years and years.

Goodbye and good luck John, I can’t say much more than to say that if I spend much longer writing this, the keyboard will short circuit because of the amount of liquid falling in to it right now. Goodbye John, and good luck.

Let me be a little kinder
Let me be a little blinder
To the faults of those about me
Let me praise a little more

Let me be when I am weary
Just a little bit more cheery
Think a little more of others
And a little less of me

Let me be a little braver
When temptation bids me waver
Let me try a little harder
To be all that I should be

Let me be a little meeker
With the brother that is weaker
Let me think more of my neighbour
And a little less of me

Let me be when I am weary
Just a little bit more cheery
Let me serve a little better
Those that I am striving for

Let me be a little meeker
With the brother that is weaker
Think a little more of others
And a little less of me

I’m sure it’s very hard to be happy right now Samuel. But it might be nice to try and celebrate John’s career rather than mourn his retirement.
Maybe you could compile a “top ten” style list of Lawsie’s funniest/most dramatic/thought provoking moments. Just an idea, but it’s no good to be depressed.
Chin up Tiger.

Sorry I’ve been away from the computer most of the afternoon. I’m certainly celebrating his career now…it was just back then as he was signing off that it was a bit emotional.

I’m happy for him.
