Subject: RE: another 'what happened' to 60's folk

I googled on "Don Partridge" because I thought he'd been getting about on the music scene relatively recently, and found this on Wikipedia:

"By 2004, veteran Irish DJ Terry Wogan was musing about Partridge's existence on his daily breakfast BBC Radio 2 programme. The belated revival of interest in Partridge's work was given a further boost by the inclusion of his song "Breakfast on Pluto", in the soundtrack to the 2005 film, Breakfast on Pluto.

In the same year Partridge undertook a UK tour as support for the indie pop / trip hop duo, known as Lemon Jelly. Reviews of their performances on 11 and 16 March 2005 at the Brixton Academy, London."
