Some time ago I had the privilege to appear on The Harry and Edna Show on the Wireless, they just sent me a link to a podcast of the show which I was delighted to receive and prompted me to answer the question; “Why Lord Joe Wells?”
During the course of the show I was asked why I have the title Lord Joe Wells and as they had forgotten or we went off on another topic before I regaled the story which may ring true with others who have been adopted.
I was adopted when I was one year old and had wonderful parents but one always wonders; where do I come from and will one day The Marquis of Bath turn up declaring that he is my birth father whilst showing me round the family estate with the promise, “Berkshire, my boy; one day it will be yours!”
Friends of mine at the time joined in the fun and as I used to live in Woodford would often call me Lord Wells of Woodford, which as I am a fairly honest man and not one for deceit necessitated the purchase of a Title from the wartime fort in the Thames estuary, otherwise known as The Principality of Sealand, as Harry guessed correctly.
The Harry and Edna show usually plays vintage forties music and discusses matters relating to the vintage scene, however the podcast omits the music but should you wish to listen to their show complete with music, which I would thoroughly recommend you will easily find them with an interweb search.
For those of you interested in purchasing any of my books you can find them down the right hand side of this page, if you are viewing on a computer or if you fiddle about if you are young and using a telephone, failing that here is a link to Amazon where you will find them all very reasonably priced. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Mr-Joe-Wells/e/B06XKWFQHT/ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_1?qid=1546632800&sr=8-1
