Hosted & posted by Andy Bell & Hikaru Freeman
It was a meeting of the North America Fabulous Tunes Association with a twist.
In the week of Canada Day (July 1st) & Independence Day (July 4th) the boys did their thing in their own special way.
For Andy it was about what the US means in music & culture as an outsider looking in and desiring a hot dog with relish.
For Wisconsin born Hikaru it was about giving the mob over the 49th parallel a nod & then delivering a nipponesque approach to the american song.
All par for the TFC course really.
