‘A Bank Holiday Broadcast’ – Epsom Downs-Clapham Junction

Sharing the coach with a man loudly holding court on his phone. The promoter of a music night (in Watford), he goes through the variations of ticket distribution (complimentary and paying) before starting up a conversation with a woman (and prospective punter) opposite. A rough guide to the capital. ‘Where are you from?’…’I’m not local’…Tottenham, Edmonton, Harlseden, Peckham…the very public nature, and volume level, of the conversation giving it the feel of a (local) radio phone in. Inadvertent public service on public transport.
