08:05:09 :::: radioShirley presents “Animal Crackers!


Greetings Shirleyphiles and welcome to another 40 minutes or so of low-fi lovliness!

Well its getting a little chilly round these parts and when Shirl’s parts get a little chilly,
yours truly reaches for her favourite fur coat. Now before you start throwing cream pies
and planning how to knee cap me next time we meet in the carpark, the fur in question
is 100% endorsed by the late Linda McCartney herself! No, its not woven from Sir Paul’s
pubic shedding – heaven forbid – but is a fabulous faux little number which fits me
to a tee and fools just about everyone! Even mr.K looked twice when I swished in
wearing said fur for the first time. Always the thoughtful one, for the first two weeks
he would leave it a bowl of water as it lay languid across the lounge.

That’s more than Heather did for Sir Paul I bet!

So for all the Shirleyphiles feeling the chill, this show is for you! Unhinged as we are,
we’ve thrown open the cages with Pavlovian technique and released our animal instincts
along with Tom Jones, The Trashmen, Slim Whitman, Mama Cass, Iggy Pop, Dusty Springfield,
Mrs Miller, Ivor Cutler, Wire, Nick Cave, The Birthday Party, Rex Harrison, Kate Bush,
Benzell Graham, Brigette Bardot, The Nutty Squirrels, Jonathon Richman & The Modern Lovers,
Tiny Tim, Ella Mae Morse & The Kinks. How’s that for a musical menagerie!

Until next time listeners, move the cat out of harms way, feed the birds tuppence a bag
and give the next furry friend you come across a little scratch behind the ear.
You should see mr.K roll over each time I do that to him! It’s positively canine!

*be smooched*
laShirl and mr. Kenneth

    “Hey there, little insect!” Gotta love this show, and being an animal lover (scaly, furry or slippery) I really, really do! Congrats on another blockbuster, my dear Ms laShirl ( esp. love that big finish). Do enjoy fur coat season in Brisvegas, darling, you deserve it. Looking forward to a photo of you and mrKenneth out on the town in the brisk evening air, fur coats and silk scarves a-flyin’!
