The “Long & Winding Goodbye” continues apace – this was the 18th last TFC.
One of the themes this week was “themes”. Then there was a particularly redundant edition of “Newsless” and the latest on the increasingly bitter feud between the two presenters over that missing roll of sellotape.
It’s radio with a twist, but the swelling is coming down thanks to arnica.
The Chosen – Menagerie
Video Killed The Radio Star – Buggles
Burn It Down – The Dynamites (featuring Charles Walker)
Let’s Go Diva – Kim Hyun Jung
Un Colpo In Un Instante – Delta V
Lady Beelzebub – Oliver Clark
A Hikaru discovery who in the clip sings a song that was an Andy discovery while on holidays. Strange, true and wonderful.
Strong Love – Smokey
Betty – Johnny Dowd
Seachange – Wendy Morrison & James Plaisance
Silent Rouge – Kingo Hamada
Typhoon Drive – Kazuhito Murata
Please Don’t Talk About Me When I’m Gone – Sammy Davis Jr
One of the great “all round” entertainers. The clip shows his timpanic (?) skills.
Do Nothin’ Till You Hear From Me – Anita O’Day
Believe What You Say – Ricky Nelson
Love Is A Boomerang – Yoko Sakamoto
Paralysed – Million Dollar Quartet
Almost hung out 56 years to the day that it flashed into a brief, but brilliant incarnation the “MDQ” gets an outing on TFC. In a Memphis recording studio Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Johnny Cash hung out together, sang some songs and became, arguably, the world’s first super group.
And Love Goes On – Earth, Wind, & Fire
Here is this edition’s Must Watch Radio:
