It’s a the last month of the year my friends and so I am beginning to introduce a seasonal element into the show. 

I will also be wearing tinsel somewhere or other on my body during each program between now and December 24th (the Christmas Eve show will have a non-surprise guest co-presenter … I wonder who that might be?)

And the new feature I mentioned last week ? 

Well it’s having the same artist two weeks in a row. 

It’s Frank Sinatra whose completes the musical quinella this week. 

And as a bonus we’ve got another version of Brazil … or rather Brasil.

On with the show, this is it!


Jump Children – The Flamingos

“Universally hailed as one of the finest and most influential vocal groups in pop music history, the Flamingos defined doo wop at its most elegant and sophisticated, their matchless harmonies profoundly impacting the Motown Sound of the 1960s and the Philly soul of the following decade.” www.allmusic.com.au

Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting – Elton John

Elton aka Reg went to my school (Pinner Grammar School – http://www.pinneroldstudents.co.uk/)

Little Birdie – Paul Armfield (www.paularmfield.com/)

The Glory Of Love – Bette Midler

It Must Be Him – Lee Adam Wilshier

Ticket To Ride – The Beatles

The Best Is Yet To Come – Tony Bennett & Diana Krall

The Best Is Yet To Come – Mabel Mercer

And after two very different versions of this wonderful Cy Coleman song, let’s see how the composer himself deals with it.

This song was the last Frank inatra sang in public, on February 25, 1995.  And  the words “The Best is Yet to Come” are etched on his tombstone.  Therefore …

I’m A Fool To Want You – Frank Sinatra

Only A Rose – Geraint Watkins

Living In The 70s – Skyhooks

Snowfall Cha-cha – George Shearing
