As explained last year, this is a tradition here at Chez Shirl but we really have no idea why except to say we love a good accent that curls our toes and nothing tangles my tootsies like mr.K, ma cherie, when he gets all Gomez Adams with me. Ooh la la!
This is quite the trés mix eclectic, as you regular radioShirleyphiles have come to expect. With a lineup including Brigette Fontaine, Grace Jones, Charles Aznavour, France Gall, Eartha Kitt, Les Negresses Vertes, Phonoboy, Nouvelle Vague and far too many more to mention, we hope this show will have you swinging from the chandelier!
We also have a special treat from long time Shirleyphile and authentic Frenchman, Pierre Veinante with his band, Les Mygales détendues (their Facebook page lists their interests as ‘Neurosciences and Rock’) – who perform a fabulous cover version LIVE in the science lab of the ‘Téléphone’ hit, Ça (C’est Vraiment Toi). This my friends, is what happens when French Neuroscientists get down! Magnifique! A special mention must also go out to Crispin for getting Shirl back on the horse like the Lady Godiva she is, and inspiring my manservant, mr.K, to cook up a new edition for the 2013 Bastille Day celebrations. Merci, mr.C!
Until next time Shirleyphiles, take absolute care and play fair!
radioShirl and mr. Kenneth
