    • Fantastic set as expected Mr Mc. The only (slight) criticism I would make is that you omitted 'Elvis Should Play Ska' by the Graduate. That aside carry on the good work ha ha
    • What about Face In The Crowd by Merton Parkas...!?
    • That goes without saying Kai. No self respecting bash do should pass without that classic getting an airing.
    • I should think so! :-)
    • Lol :-)
    • Nice to see someone else appreciates that Frootful single, Paddy ;)

    • Hadn't played it out for years so it deserved it's place on the team :-)
