Summer is still hanging on with clammy hands. 31 degrees on this Saturday.
The segue way from summer to autumn is my favourite time of year. It’s a junction between the flannelled fools and muddied oafs and I’m on any train that’s leaving that station.
After those seasonal musings, it’s time to cut to the chase and list the musical bits that were sprinkled on the TFC cup cake this week.
Good Vibrations – Mark Marky & The Funky Bunch
Hang On There Baby – Johnny Bristol
A-Tisket, A-Tasket – Ella Fitzgerald
San E Wireless – Christine Anu

A big, big hit in the late 1950s. The sound of the song is “skiffle” and the Brits made it their own.

This bloke was a very clever academic at Harvard, but he found unlikely fame as part of the satire boom of the 1960s. Cactus Time In Arizona – Judy Blazer
