I believe there are one or two folks on here who enjoy the delightful racket of Cardiacs, but who may not have heard that the mighty Tim Smith was recently awarded an honorary Doctor of Music by the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. This news really made my week, particularly considering the dreadful ongoing health problems which Tim continues to experience following complications arising from his heart attack in 2008. Below is the YouTube video of the relevant part of the degree ceremony. It includes a terrific short film about Tim, and a beautiful heartfelt acceptance by his brother Jim. I think I felt something in my eye.
