I am over 40 - I wish this wasn't true but it is, I've checked on my birth certificate and everything - and am originally from Banbury, although I now live in Leeds. Having (mis)spent practically all of my youth listening to pop music and watching television, these are the only things I know anything about and are therefore the areas I have contributed most to in Wikipedia (with particular emphasis on the 70s and 80s).

Articles I have worked on a lot:

The Smiths, The Guardian, Leeds, Banbury, John Hegley, Top of the Pops, John Peel, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Peep Show (TV series) ... and, er, Ted Chippington.

Idea for new article - list of Smiths concerts - listed below, to be formatted into table etc.:
