Now we are 80. ..programs that is. Yep, there have been 160 hours of TFC since the program sashayed on to the airwaves in March last year. In that time the Pet Shop Boys, Presets Rufus Wainwright, Doris Day, Yma Sumac & Sunshine Not Secular have been among the most played artistes in that time. By the time program #100 comes along I ‘ll do a full “league table”.
