So here we are.
On the brink of the 200th show.
To those who regularly listen and check in via the interweb and walking about telephonic thing I send my thanks as I do in equal measure to those who have said “hi” just the once.
Radio is such an intimate medium and on Saturday night it is a wonderful thing to cosy up to so many.
And without talking sticks and wirey things we couldn’t do it.
So why not dig deep and join the “Joy 94.9 Tech Drive 2012” – every dollar counts.
Now on with the show…
Dirty Laundry – Bitter:Sweet (the colon IS correct!!)
That’s Amore – Dean Martin
Let’s Stick Together – Bryan Ferry
Stop, Stop, Stop – The Hollies
Nothing like a banjo to elevate a song. I have a theory that part of the reason for the lack of silverware at the Westen Bulldogs is due to the absence of a banjo line in our club song. Ahem.
Paper Roses – Hank Snow
A song for Kilmarnock.
Brandeburg Tor – Ketil Stokkan
This week’s Eurovision song. One from 1990 when everyone was banging on about european unity and how everything was peachy-keen. It came joint last, but I like it ! For all kinds of everything in the Eurovision sense go to TFC’s sister site JoyEurovision.com for blogposts, podcasts and general Baku brouhaha.
Grant Green – Zeek’s Beek
Sweet Georgia Brown – Red Norvo Trio
Buttons & Bows – The Dinning Sisters
The ever winning Dinnings.
Wavelength – Superdarling AKA Tanya Lee Davies
Seddi Gwag – Huw M
Psycadelic Baby – Dudley Moore
A very naughty track from one of the annual naughty discs released by British satitical magazine Private Eye. The vocalist is Dudley Moore.
You Are Not My First Love – Mabel Mercer
Guess Things Happen That Way – Johnny Cash
The clip has the Man in Black as something of a teen heart throb !
Since I Fell For You – Whirimako Black
Birmingham Bounce – Lionel Hampton Orchestra
The Monster – The New Swing Sextet
How Do You Keep The Music Playing ? – Tony Bennett & George Michael
Make Your Own Kind Of Music – Mamas & Papas
Is “Beautiful Thing” the most heart-warming, soul-elevating coming out play/movie ever ? This unreconstructed romantic says YES !!
Ring My Bell – Anita Ward
The first track ever played on TFC. Obvious really.
