We don't do requests

Wakey wakey!

You'd have thought they could afford an entire piano.



You have to admire any man who can start a grand piano medley with "I've Got A Lovely Bunch Of Coconuts."


And of course...



How they ever got away with it...

Oh Kev, thank you so much! Scarls, Russ Conway! Sidesaddle! Love you, Kevvers. Cx

Is the host in the first one Wilfred Pickles, then?

Daphne Wayne-Bough said...

That was Billy Cotton, Gadj. Wakey Wayyyyy-KAYYYYY!!! Da da da da da daaaa .... Mrs P, you must watch the Liberace opening number, he's playing your song. Russ was a pub pianist with matinee idol looks, and Liberace was the Elton John of his day. My nan fancied them both like mad.

Can we have some Bobby Crush next time Kev?

Mrs Pouncer said...

Daphs, I love Russ. Bobbikins is my fave rave tune of all time, and Kevs IS doing requests, whatever he may say.

Kevin Musgrove said...

I'll hold my hands up: I did look for Bobby Crush as well but couldn't get him on fillum (I was looking for one of the Seaside Specials).

Liberace was the excuse for me to post the Spike Jones skit, which is one of my favourites.

Suddenly, my dull weekend (almost weekend) has just perked up. I shall go about my filial duties with a little spring in my step. Spike Jones is wonderful. But Tom Lehrer is still the man for me.

Mrs Pouncer said...

What's the Liberace opening number, Daph? Wait, is it the theme from Exodus? Kev? What is it? "This land is mine, this dah dah land is mine, dah dah dah dah this land is mine". Summat about landmines, anyway. Pat Boone? Help me out here.

Scarlet-Blue said...

My Mum used to like Liberace... but I don't remember any opening tune. Maybe Daph was referring to 'I've got a lovely pair of coconuts'?

Mme. de F: Today's first post may help assuage a long-felt want.

Mrs. P.: if I ever get my act together (which may be never) I'll see about converting some of my old tapes into a suitable format for uploading. One of my copies of the old Shadow radio shows ("who knows what evil lurks in the heart of men?") has a really creepy "this land is mine" monologue in the advertising break. It would appeal to your sense of the macabre.

Lulu: I have only ever once in my life worn Lurex and never again.
