Alan Plater in Hull - the 1940's

from Doggin' around, page 15:

Les also taught me that life only got interesting after midnight.  I'd go down to his house and we'd sit in the room full of instruments, listening in the wee small hours to Radio Luxembourg and the American Forces Network.  We'd take turns joining in with the music on the double bass.
