Song ID: UK house hit, late '80s - early '90s

I'm trying to rebuild a mix tape made for me by a London friend around 1989-1990. One track I'm having trouble finding started out with "Are you sitting comfortably? [Good.] Then I'll begin," which is a sample from the BBC's "Listen with Mother" radio series (click on the second old time radio for a clip, starts at the :16sec mark). After that it had a very deep man's voice saying "Welcome," over and over again while the music ramped up behind it. I always thought the man sounded like Worf, from ST: TNG. Any leads?

What kinds of music does London deserve credit for?

What musicians would you consider to be London musicians? I'm not talking about people who have merely passed through London to do a few gigs or record an album -- otherwise, you'd have to list everybody who ever recorded at Abbey Road! Instead, I'm looking for folks whose work grew out of the city's cultural scene in some real way, whether London natives like Dizzee Rascals or transplants like George Frideric Handel. More broadly, what styles of music originated (entirely or partially) in London? I know about grime and dubstep--what others are there? [more inside]

Where can I practise playing my annoyingly loud instrument in a crowded city?

If you play a musical instrument and live in a city, where do you go to practise? I want to start playing clarinet again, but will be living in apartments or shared houses in crowded cities (currently London, UK) for the forseeable future. Where can I practise that won't drive my neighbours absolutely crazy?

Avantgarde Operatics in London

Avantgarde London: I want to take my girlfriend out to a biggish music/sound performance/event. I want it to be avantgarde, unexpected and unique - the kind of night that would send most music lovers screaming into the distance. I am thinking maybe opera, but I know NOTHING about it.

What happens when Sotheby's London changes their mind?

I sent my supposedly authentic Italian music manuscripts to Sotheby's of London (after their music manuscripts expert authenticated them in person in NYC) to be auctioned. After they received them in London, they told me they weren't sure if they were authentic and they wouldn't auction them. Problem is, it's going to cost me a lot to get them back, and it already cost quite a bit to mail them to London. More details within. [more inside]
