The Radiothon is over, but there’s no end to the music and TFC.
The death of Michael Jackson meant many things to many people. To me, it shines a glorious light on the power of music and performance. It means acknowledging the frailty of us all. It shows – no pun or disrespect intended – that life is not a black and white issue.
A voice has, indeed, been stilled. A singer for so many generations is no more.

Stan Freberg was a rock-and-roll satirist in the 50’s. He put together a number of comedy records that were very popular and he was among the best at producing parodies of hit songs in the early days of rock-and-roll. Whatever happened to musical humour ? There’s wit a-plenty these days, but not much piss taking.
