Re: Uptheclarets Karaoke competition perhaps?

I think people are enduring enough at the moment without subjecting them to my singing, I can't carry a tune in my pocket :D

I did karaoke once and I thought the audience were Slade fans as they kept asking me to sing far, far away..

You can make yourself available as and when. Its run via an app and when you are available, you mark yourself as 'on duty'. If you can only do one day a week or even an hour thats fine.
Thats good, thanks Dushanbe, will get applying.
