The grown-up guide to street parties
That's Not My Age won't be attending any street parties, but I'm pleased to hear that even though DJ Norman Jay accepted an MBE in 2003, when asked for his ultimate street party playlist, the Notting Hill-born maestro included God Save the Queen by The Sex Pistols and Rule Britannia from the film Jubilee.
Recalling the Silver Jubilee celebration in 1977 Jay says:
'I wasn't that into it. I remember riding up on my Chopper bike, grabbing some sausage rolls and a cup of Tizer and getting right out of there.'
My sentiments exactly. See the full playlist here
