Podcast 39: Some naughtiness and the cynical side of love

Some old favourites and an episode not without a few double entendres. That cheeky fellow George Formby starts us off in his little Wigan garden. I don’t think it’s all about plants and insects though. Fats Waller extolls the virtues of rump steak. Tennessee Ernie Ford sings ‘kiss me big!’ We get all cynical with Marlene Dietrich and Rosemary and ‘Too old to cut the mustard’ and two magnificent tracks from Eartha Kitt. Lonnie Donegan gives a fine vocal performance in ‘Love is strange.’ The Kendrick brothers and pals, aka Bob Skyles and his Skyrockets sing ‘Lets play love’ and Teresa Brewer ‘Wang , Wang blues’. Marvellous. The antidote to soppy love songs completes the show ‘ Love song in 32 bars.’ A short but sweet one.. or is it bitter in parts?
