^^^Also a fine one with James Brown & BB King (and who's this JB calls up out of the audience? oh, it's Michael Jackson)

Sky Arts had a good one on Toots & the Maytals, and separately Fairport Convention Smile

Swingin' Christmas
Although with Michael "did you know I'm from Barnsley?" Parkinson hosting, it was more like Whingin' Christmas. "This is MY kind of music, and you don't hear it enough these days". Cheers, Parky. Imagine if Mick Wall walked on a stage and said "you've been listening to heavy metal. This is MY kind of music and you don't hear it enough these days". etc

Perhaps the reason we don't hear much big band music is that Ver Kids are turned off by tired, presumptuous old men like him. Or maybe because these days you'd have to rename songs like "Let It Snow! (3 times)".

Seth McFarlane was one of the main singers, but Parky did introduce a special guest star - Curtis Stigers (oh yes). Who got to sing precisely 1 song.

I was bemused from the credits to see it was in fact from 2010, because it didn't show.

Perhaps Parky has never cottoned on to Andre Rieu-mania Tongue

The Beatles - Eight Days a Week
Oasis - Supersonic
Neither was exactly pushing the boundaries of surprise, but both were massively entertaining all the same Smile

Alabama Shakes on Sky Arts were brilliant and Joe Cocker Mad Dog With Soul biography is very entertaining also on Sky Arts

Caught up with this one. Always amusing for the wrong reasons. I thought the year they profiled Madness by talking to the drummer was feeble, but they topped that by getting someone from the Style Council who wasn't Paul Weller or Mick Talbot.
