Welcome To PennyCott Studio

Hello, everybody! The only genuine Dobromark website - Accept no substitutes. I use this to put news and bits and pieces about what we are all doing musically down here on the South Coast of the UK, by the seaside.

I stress that this is a totally non-commercial site, and NOT a recording studio. Welcome anyway! There are links which you can contact if you want a guitar built, or uke or whatever and I will put you in contact with the relevant people I know. Plus there is a link to my favourite music sites - the coveted Dobromark Hall of Fame.. The best of the best, in my humble opinion..  Also links to local alehouses that put on music and are purveyors of fine beer in this area, local bands, charity sites and much more.

 Pretty grim day here at MBTS.. I still have a stinking cold..bah. Hearing getting no better.. Nothing else.

Two new Richard Thompson Acoustic Cds are brilliant. I give up!

Got some Creedence Clearwater Revival . Great stuff. Willy and the Poor Boys. Also Greatest Hits..Bad moon rising etc.

Pipedream by Alan Hull..Great album..

Seriously back into Lindisfarne at the moment..grand folk/rock..Fog on the Tyne was not the ONLY song they did..ha ha.

Listening to Dickey Betts and Great that guy can play, but I suppose he would really...

 Also..You'all must buy June Millington 'Running' The solo on the title track is FN AWESOME!!!


Warning..Do not buy 'Dixie Chicks boxed set' All jibber jabber, No music...


This is a music page and I will not comment on politics or religion and stuff. I can however mention 'You don't get me I'm part of the Union' by The Strawbs



Hospital stuff transferred to The St Richards link near the end of the main page.

 Important stuff:

308 shopping days left until Christmas! . 

Well done to St Richard's Hospital (and Worthing) for winning the top hospital award (April 2016). Nice one!

To St Richard's Hospital Chichester, Ashling Ward, Fishbourne Ward and finally The Donald Wilson Neuro Rehab Centre - all of their wonderful NHS staff..
If you wish to help this wonderful cause who rebuilt me and gave me a life again, please contribute to The Donald Wilson Amenity Fund at St Richard's Hospital, Spitalfield Lane, Chichester, West Sussex PO19 6SE. It really does help!!

 It is with great sadness that I hear that PJ Walker guitars is closing..end of an era..Thanks for everything George and your merry crew.. Absolutely all the best.. What will we do without our local guitar shop??? *** Looks like they will be attempting to keep going after George retires.. Good luck chaps!! Happy retirement George.

TV are asking for the most significant days of 2015.. Here are mine..17/1/2015 - Walked 491 yards with a zimmer..does't sound a lot but a lot for me.. 30/1/2015 - Taylor guitar arrived.. 10/4/2015 - drove car up and down drive.. 24/4/2015 - allowed to walk on crutches in house unsupervised.. Doesn't sound much.. Maybe this year will be!!

2016 Not better, worse so far..Typical..

The site content should be changing regularly now. I'm pretty happy with the general format, but any constructive comments would be more than welcome.
