Oh, go on then...

We used to tune into the Colonial Service on Sunday lunchtime to listen to Billy and Wally's "Hold Your Plums." I heard the first one live:





Sadly, I couldn't find Borussia Munchengladbach or the three men sent into the fiery furnace. perhaps next time.

Does the expression "hold your plums" mean something special in Scouse?

Madame DeFarge said...

Well, as ever, you present something of which I have never heard. Very funny, never got this with Tiger Tim on Radio Clyde.

"Hold your plums" means something special everywhere, Gadj.

I've never heard of this either.

What does it mean Scarlet? - please tell.

Clarissa: I tried ever so hard. They even gave me a clue.

Glad you enjoyed it Willow

Gadjo: ooh, you don't think there may be a second meaning do you?

Mme DF: now it's my turn to be confused: wasn't Tiger Tim in The Rainbow with Mrs. Bruin and the boys?

Scarlet: you'll have to do your mime now

Lulu: watch Scarlet, she'll be doing the mime for it

Jimmy: I'm going to have to go hunting this character...
