Friday Funny

Last Sunday was not a good day for me. Just depression about COVID around the world and wanting to get out and roam but we can't. This cheered me up no end and made me laugh. Thanks ABC and go Raf with your great dancing. 

Ok, this is very local to Melbourne. They are all ABC Melbourne radio presenters. There is a bit of a back story to Sammy J and Trigger Trioli having a dance off. I wake up to Sammy J at 6.55 and listen to Trigger Trioli from 8.30. Once she has finished, I don't listen much more to radio, although I am familiar with all the presenters. You folk interstate may know some of the presenters.

The presenters are in order of the day, with the weekend morning presenter Libbi Gorr included dancing at our major city intersection where you would normally see hundreds of cars and people never mind trams. The sports broadcasters Coodabeen Champions were included too.

It is all set to Marcia Hines' recording of Disco Inferno. Gosh she looks so young but she is.......67. I hope I look as good as her when I reach 67. Oh, I don't already.

  1. Thank you. And them.
    I was feeling down this morning and am smiling all over my face.
    Wasn't it amazing how the few who weren't in masks stood out?
    And no, I don't look as good as Marcia either.

    1. Wasn't it such a fun clip EC. Maybe you don't have the wealth for cosmetic surgery that Marcia has.

  6. I know how you feel about your favourite radio personalities. ABC News Radio said goodbye to Sandy Aloisi today and I felt really really sad.

    And now I finally know the name of that tune.

  8. Enjoyable video.
    Never listen to the radio or watch TV in the morning - for me, nothing more annoying than a radio or TV. Used to listen to local ABC radio long time ago in the morning but got tired of the same old thing...I have got many things to do in the am, and find I don't have time to stop and listen or look.

    1. Diane, she is just great on the radio and I've missed her over the school holidays.

  10. I saw this somewhere the other day and thought how Melbourne is Libbi in her black/white outfit.....and did Raf really have desert boots on. Poor Trevor all alone in the studio.
    Sorry Andrew... I know they’re favourites of yours but LaTrioli and Sammy J don’t interest me - not on my ‘must listen to’ list. Haven’t tuned in to 774 for quite a while, I do miss previous breakfast and morning people, yes I know I’m old and in a rut but.......

    1. Oh and do you remember Brian Nankervis and his humorous ‘poetry’ when was on Hey Hey....or are you too young?

      Delete
    2. Cathy, I think black is flattering to those of us with a larger build, and yes, so Melbourne. How could Raf dance so well in desert boots? I too miss the old but I fairly well embrace the new.

    3. Of course I remember Brian on Hey Hey. He was strange and still is a bit. I saw him a few years ago in Balaclava.

  12. Oh I loved that Andrew, not feeling so well today but this also cheered me up. My fave was David Astle, I don't know who he is but loved his happy dance 😁 Merci beaucoup 💙
