If you listen to Classic fm you get ads for equity release and folk singing about Senokot extra...

In fairness, you get the Senokot Max adverts on Kerrang!! (Heavy Rock/Metal) Radio as well, dunno what that says about us (ageing) rockers?

Surely listening to Classic FM is the very definition of getting on. The FiL always has it on the car, it's pretty much the sound of mortality.

I still can't handle 'easy listening', so perhaps there's hope for me yet.

When...

- getting in the main car to go and pick up the backup car from the garage, you ask your wife for the main-car papers and she replies "I just gave them to you".

- you notice that the fuel tank is full and remark "oh good, you filled up this morning" and she replies "no, you did, yesterday".

- there was a third thing but you've forgotten it.

Nahh, that one's timeless.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

When someone in the DIY hole takes you for a shop flunky and you're pleased because that'd make you 10 years younger.

You are lying in bed, perfectly comfortable, and something just starts aching, for no obvious reason  :(

The nearest I have ever come to EASY LISTENING was when it was a solution in one of last week's Graun quick crosswords.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

My old cycling chum René aged 10 years in a month when his daughter (a) had a child, (b) got divorced, (c) got a job and (d) dumped the horrid querulous child on him to look after. René's wife was much younger than him and still worked, so he got 100% of the blast.
