“It ain’t necessarily so”.  Well it is really. Two versions of that great Gershwin song this week plus an enigmatic Kiwi and a few favourite Australians. Add a bit of Queen (goes without saying) and a bit of Dusty and that’s the TFC mix.

Feast your optics and click away on the links. Meanwhile, in breaking news, here’s the latest on Rufus Wainwright’s opera and some alarming facts about the demise of disco
