The Full Catastrophe – July 10th 2010

In TFC on July 10, 2010 at 10:56 pm

TFC presented by Andy Bell

The balls are in the air, the socks pulled up and the vuvuzelas are at the ready.

TFC in the bleak midwinter of the southern hemisphere, but full of steaming goodness.  Think of it as musical broth with lashings of crusty bread.

And if you need more winter warmers, don’t forget the snugliness that is the Fabulous Files !

You Want The Candy – The Ravonettes

Guess Who’s In Town – Bobby Short

The epitome of a classy cabaret chanteur.  Bobby Short was urbane, natty and a hell of a performer.

Winter Coat – Paul Kelly

Drag Queen – John-Frederick

Can’t Buy Me Love – Peter Sellers

Can’t Buy Me Love – The Beatles

Attention Must Be Paid – Betty Comden & Adolph Green

A brilliantly witty American musical-comedy team who wrote scripts—and often the lyrics—for many Broadway shows and Hollywood film musicals from the 1940s onward. Betty Comden and Adolph Green were paired together longer than any other writing team in the history of Broadway. They also performed their songs.  And for a man and woman to work together in partnership at that time was quite notable. The tracks played gave just a hint of their contribution.
