I've just been reminded on FB that it was 10 years ago today that the smoking-in-public-places ban came into effect (in the UK).

I'd forgotten the anniversary, but I remember the "event" well as I was working away from home (up in Holmes Chapel) and was rooming above a pub (the Old Mill, Alsager) during the week - did that on and off for about 16 months, so got to know a few people (and smokers).

As a non-smoker it was great for me, not having to breathe it in and brilliant not to have my clothes imbued with the stuff.

Jim (Donovan - see some Reggae Steady Go! playlists by Pete) mentioned that he celebrated the event by spinning a whole evening of "smoking" tunes - that's smoking as opposed to smokin'!

So I was wondering if that event could have been marked by a similar evening of JA tunes?

Tunes about cigarettes, cigars, tobacco (chewing or pipe), pipes, matches, but without drifting into spliff, chalice and bong territiory...
