The Full “Hanging Chad” Catastrophe – 3rd November 2012

In TFC on November 3, 2012 at 9:57 pm

Hosted & posted by Andy Bell & Hikaru Freeman

A big day is looming on Tuesday and we are not talking about gee-gees.

With the US Election shaping up as a cliffhanger, TFC took the opportunity to take a slightly sideways look at the whole rigmarole.

Hikaru Freeman brought all the might of his knowledge of his homeland, while Andy pined for recent american delights … particularly potato based breakfast products.


Lift Ev’ry Voice & Sing – Kim Weston
Known as “The African-American National Anthem”.  The Johnson brothers, James Weldon and Rosamond, wrote it   in 1900 to honour President Lincoln’s birthday.
Lift every voice and sing, till earth and Heaven ring,
Ring with the harmonies of liberty;
Let our rejoicing rise, high as the listening skies,
Let it resound loud as the rolling sea.
Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us,
Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us;
Facing the rising sun of our new day begun,
Let us march on till victory is won.
