First off... last week's guest hosts... Morris and Mr. Moose wish to convey their most sincere appreciation to all those who shared the night of Fun & Games with them. They were particularly delighted with the success of their intro number from the Broadway musical Gypsy. Who among us will ever forget the Meese's high spirited rendition of Together, Wherever We Go? And the rest is hilarious history :)
This week, on Friday, April 25th WTF! welcome a singular Guest Host... last year's Knight of the Living Trad... the always affable Mr. Bill Plaskett who sent me the following:
"And theme-wise, maybe we can go for something like ... the Knight of the Living Trad has thrown away his silly hat and says simply...
let's have a good old sing up, with Songs for the Season and Stories Too!
... taking a cue from the likes of Owain Phyffe: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hPMumoZRSCk , the Clancy Brothers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04U7Om1a2GY, or these little guys: http://vimeo.com/7246043, whatever you fancy".
You gotta love Bill! He's organized! He left me verily speechless! A veritable blessing in disguise for all of you who havelong suffered through my verbosity :)
He even sent a pic. See below... your man of the evening (without his Knight's hat).
In the immortal words of Stevie Wonder... "Isn't he lovely? Isn't he wonderful?" :)
