The Full Catastrophe March 13th – Program 99

In TFC on March 13, 2010 at 9:54 pm

Here we are in the nervous nineties, edging towards to a ton.  Fear not, the bat will be straight and no chances will be given !

And with that undertaking, here’s hour 197 and hour 198 of TFC in all its glory. And as an added bonus (tautology) here’s the “Danger Man theme…you had to be there.


Hanging Onto Your Love – Take That

Bad Girls – Donna Summer

Deadstar – Run Baby Run

Lover Come Back To Me – Mildred Bailey

She was known as “Mrs Swing”.

I Walk On Gilded Splinters – Paul Weller

The Girl From Ipanema – Astrud Gilberto

How gorgeous is Astrud ? And the video clip comes from Fab-TV.  Says it all.

In Writing – Uncle Monkey

Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda – Judith Durham

So Long – Pat Benataar

Vivace by Alexander Tcherepnin – Yo-Yo Ma

Mr Sandman – Combo Fiasco

Baby, It’s Cold Outside – Johnny Mercer & Margaret Whiting

We Started Nothing – Ting Tings

Rainin’ – Bobby Darin

Darin’s short and influential career was featured in the mivie “Beyond the sea” in which he was played by Kevin Spacey.  Compare and contrast:

Let The Little Girl Dance – Billy Bland

When You Awake – June Christie

Piniero Tenia Razon – Machito & His African-Cubans

Stingray – Gary Miller & Barry Gray Orchestra

“Stingray” was a forerunner of “Thunderbirds” and was one of my childhood favourites!  Here’s the opening and if the voice at the start sounds familiar….it’s Aussie actor Ray Barrett

Don’t Tell Mama – Ute Lemper

Ordinary Miracles – Maureen McGovern

Make Believe – Esther Phillips

The Kid Inside – Enda Markey

It’s Over – Tom Novy

And finally….Go Doggies.
