There is nothing more we love here at Jammy Toast than listening to some of our favourite tunes. From time to time we will post a music video from an artist or genre that we think will be enjoyable to you; our friends. We often feature music that you may not have come across before, or music that maybe you just missed the first time around. Try and listen with an open mind, you never know, you may find something you can add to your iPod. If you have any music videos you would like us to feature then drop us a line – we are always happy to listen to requests but we cannot promise to feature everyone’s favourite…

Roger Waters Finally Gets Some Answers

Former Pink Floyd song-writer Roger Waters, who just happens to be a firm favourite here at Jammy Toast, has finally been learning some truths about his father’s death. Eric Fletcher Waters was serving as a second lieutenant with the Royal Fusiliers as they advanced through Italy in 1944 when he was killed in action. His new born son Roger was aged just five months when he was killed on the battlefield near Cassino on 18th February. Second World War dispatches detailing the last hours of the Pink Floyd star’s father have been found by a veteran of the Italy campaign. The death of his father was the inspiration for one of the greatest albums of all time – Pink Floyd’s The Wall – which tells the story of a rock star emotionally scarred by the death of his father during the war.
