Re: Amazing 1979 - 1980 Vault on Monday night

I edited my recording of this VAULT on Friday (28 June). I had not read the playlist since recording it in the first place and I had not watched it previously. At the moment, I am in a music mood so I'm playing every song as it pops up before saving it. In other words, I set my start point, play the song then set my end point.

Anyway, as you can see from the playlist, I eventually got to this song:


Now I'll bet everyone here had the same reaction of "What the f**k is this?"
I had a different reaction: "Oh! I have this on a DVD!"

Yes, you read that right.

I got a DVD from the UK called "Oh, Please Yourself: Frankie Howerd At ITV" from Network. The special features are both of Frankie's appearances on the London Weekend Television talk show hosted by Russell Harty. The DVD includes the full shows in both cases, not just the Frankie Howerd interviews.

The second one, from 14 April 1979, features Charlton Heston as his first guest, a performance by bleater Adrian Munsey and then the interview (and a song) from Frankie Howerd. They played the performance of "The Lost Sheep" which is from this episode. But the DVD uses the LWT master tape so it is in much better condition than what the ABC played - plus Russell interviews the guy after the "song" to ask what made him choose that direction.

It's all in good fun, but, seriously, what were they thinking including that?
Anyway, here is the entire episode of the Russell Harty show if you's want it
