Alan Plater in Little Weighton - mid , month unknown, the 1980's

from Doggin' around, pages 108-109:

One evening we were booked to appear at the church hall in Little Weighton, a village to the west of the city. We arrived early and went for a drink in the local pub. As we started to drink, the sound of Oscar Peterson filled the bar. I checked with the barman.
'Is that Oscar Peterson?'
'The one and only.'
'I don't think I've ever heard Oscar Peterson in a pub.'
'It's strictly against regulations. I'm supposed to play official music supplied by the brewery, but it's all crap so I always play my own tapes in the early evening before the place fills up.'
