In Uncategorized on July 28, 2012 at 10:54 pm
Hosted & posted by Andy Bell & Hikaru Freeman
The flame was burning bright, the rings were there for all to see and the athletic supports were in place on Saturday night. 
And then there’s the Olympics.
Hikaru brought yet more new stuff to the table, while Andy mounted a rearguard action with some obscure stuff of his own. 
This is a musical pillow fight. 
In other news from the TFC rumpus room podcasting continues and expands – keep clicking on and tuning in.
Trouble – Shampoo
A opening track that fits TFC like a glove.
It Won’t Be Long – The ReChords
From our very own northern suburbs & the clip is from one of my favourite haunts, the Gem in Fitzroy.
Streets Are Hot – Miho Fujiwara
Blue Drag – New Orleans Jazz Vipers
Australia – Manic Street Preachers
From the south Wales valleys to a sunburnt country.
Delay, Delay – The Heartbreaks
The Bee Song – Arthur Askey
One of Hinkaru’s transports of delight is the Bumble Bee tram on route 96.
Funky Star – Kome Kome Club
Cold Blooded Lover – Active Force 

You’ll Never Get To Heaven (If You Break My Heart) – The Stylistics

 Just One Of Those Things – Dirk Bogarde
Andy’s shame track.  This should be bad, but it sorta kinda works.  He did a whole album of non-singing singing.
Truly Outrageous – Jem & The Holograms
Hikaru’s shame is delicious.

Peanut Vendor – Stan Kenton

It goes on and on, but so splendidly.

Brotherhood of Man – Daniel Radcliffe
From the revival of the musical “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying
This clip is from the film version with Robert Morse, latterly seen in “Mad Men” repeating the role he made his own in the original production in the early 1960s.
And here is Daniel Radcliffe giving it a shake.
