Woah! What a hair shaker! Wrapping presents. Love you Georgy, Hi Mr. Fab. MB what game are you currently playing? Just finished watching the movie Broadcast News. What a great movie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

There's a hairdressers in Brighton called Bona Riah and a food shop called Bona Foodie ;-)
Avatar 3:08pm Mr Fab:

The kids these days. It's like they speak a different language.
Avatar 3:08pm worldsworstrecords:

that's ace. I must come for a troll
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

For those not au fait with Polari - the opening sequence of "Velvet Goldmine" uses it :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

A language that was cobbled from old Romani, soem Yiddish, old theatre speak ... adopted by the gay underground in the UK during the times when homosexuality was criminalised. Hence the need for a secret language.
"Round the Horne" which was broadcast before homosexuality was decriminalised was VERY daring with its inclusion of Polari.
Avatar 3:10pm worldsworstrecords:

here's a good starting point: chris-d.net...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10pm Otis Fodder:

Back to concentration and fixing issues here now, I can always work to this show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:11pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The two legendary comedians playing Julian and Sandy on "Round the Horne" were the iconic Hugh Paddick and Kenneth Williams :-)

Indeed, in those days you could get into trouble with Lilly Law if you were an omi polone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:11pm Linda Lee:

'beat me 'til I'm blue'! wow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It's extraordinary to know that a mainstream BBC radio show featured this :-)
Avatar 3:12pm geezerette:

Ouch! :)
Avatar 3:13pm Agent Spacegirl:

Have a great Holiday! xoxo
Avatar 3:13pm worldsworstrecords:

ohh! innee bold?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm Linda Lee:

seems you could get away with a lot if the majority had no clue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Punishment for being gay pre-decriminalisation included jail time, enforced psychiatric treatment, and chemical castration. :-(
Avatar 3:14pm worldsworstrecords:

very true Linda: there was a lot of hiding in plain sight too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm Linda Lee:

here as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm Linda Lee:

yes. absolutely.
Avatar 3:15pm worldsworstrecords:

even after 1967 Georgy, depending on the circumstances. Electro shock was still widely used into the 1970s
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

This is sadly true :-(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm Alina Brennaman:

I like my radio shows like I like my pants, high waisted. And I like my pants like I like myself, high and wasted
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm Linda Lee:

the usual treatment of the marginal: horrific.
Avatar 3:15pm worldsworstrecords:

lol!
Avatar 3:16pm Mr Fab:

Fascinating, had no idea. A few of those words are fairly well-known, but haven't heard most of 'em, and never knew it was codified into an (informal) language.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm Alina Brennaman:

Hi! had to take a shower and cleanse myself after Darryls show....
Avatar 3:16pm worldsworstrecords:

I'm glad to be of service, Alina
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Some have gone into everyday usage - like troll, bijou, naff etc
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm Alina Brennaman:

Here now in bathrobe, turban towel and fuzzy slippers so I feel adequately dressed for HWM!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm Linda Lee:

my kind of listener, Alina. :-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I like knowing that my listeners dress up for me! :-D <3
Avatar 3:17pm Martinibomb:

Thanks for providing the soundtrack to my work day.
Avatar 3:17pm worldsworstrecords:

Even Princess Anne used Naff

:-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm Linda Lee:

i wear the same clothes for days just in your honor, dear. :-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm Otis Fodder:

I keep meaning to put on some proper pants and get over to the grocery. Still in the same sweatsuit since yesterday, minus the gold chains... otherwise I could fit in on the greek side of town quite easy with the older fellows.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Omi - man
Palone - woman
Omi Palone - gay man
Bona - good or beautiful
Troll - walk or stroll about
Lallies - legs
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm Linda Lee:

I'm sure I could too, Otis.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Vada - see or look
Eek or ecaf - face
Riah - hair
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm Otis Fodder:

It's a comfy look!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm Linda Lee:

it is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm Otis Fodder:

I'm about to take a troll to vada about some bona food this evening. I should wash my riah first.
Avatar 3:20pm Mr Fab:

This show's real, um, "bona"? How's my accent?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

A number of books have been translated into Polari as well as plays, and there are cabaret nights that feature songs and poetry :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - it's lovely, duckie ;-)
Avatar 3:22pm Mr Fab:

Diggin all the rockin fuzz guitar teen tunes this week, GG.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm Otis Fodder:

Wow, this is awesome! Polari ! en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I decided to give it that early to mid 60s vibe :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm Linda Lee:

'camp' is Polari? had no clue!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Bona to vada yer dolly old eek = Lovely to see your sweet face :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Naff (rubbish) literally is "Not available for fucking" ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm Linda Lee:

had no idea 'acdc' was Polari either! that's a real common one. my dear elder friend ~ the lady i cared for some years back ~ used it & i figured it was just old school.
Avatar 3:26pm geezerette:

Hi, Georgy & all.
Watched "Victim" recently. dirkbogarde.co.uk... Radical in it's time for showing the fear and shame that law and traditional attitudes imposed on men who loved men.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm Linda Lee:

Dirk Bogarde was great in those roles. always.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

There are some excellent, albeit sobering, 60s films like you say that deal with this. Well worth seeking out.
Avatar 3:27pm geezerette:

...and enjoying this cheerful, bouncy music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Nanti is nothing or none
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm Linda Lee:

absolutely true. people were tortured, have no doubt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

So nanti moulah or nanti geld means you haven't got any money!
Avatar 3:28pm Mr Fab:

i am just clicky-starring the HECK out of this episode, if you'll pardon my (standard) language.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm Nanti Moulah:

still looking for that perfect moniker.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@LL - love it!!! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm Nanti Moulah:

maybe a keeper ~ til i sell the shack! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

"Round The Horne" was a wonderful radio show in general - highly recommended :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Writers included Marty Feldman, for example :-)
Avatar 3:36pm geezerette:

Disco a Go-Go !
Shake your fringe.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

All my HWM shows are recorded up to and including New Year's Day :-) VERY weird to type 2020!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

How did Radio Focus like your show? They should be very pleased with it! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm Nanti Moulah:

gosh, you've been workin it!
Avatar 3:40pm worldsworstrecords:

wow! You're organised GG!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm working so that, aside from broadcasting, I don't have to work over the holiday period :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Nanti Moulah:

fantastic. yes. enjoyment only!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I have a cabinet full of books with my name on it for the holidays ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm Nanti Moulah:

are you close to home, GG?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm Nanti Moulah:

for the holidays?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

My home? As in the flat? Yep, I'm here. Staying put :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm Nanti Moulah:

lovely. i like that idea. less stress.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm Nanti Moulah:

the absolute grinding people put themselves through for these 'joyful' holidays ~ a real shame.
Avatar 3:45pm worldsworstrecords:

funny that Ken W should mention Soldiers in Skirts there: I've mentioned it in my next book
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

My partner's at his parents, and my daughter and I don't celebrate Christmas so we have a pile of books and movies to chill out with :-)
And a roast dinner ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm Jan Turkenburg:

@ Georgy Well, editor in chief, Martin showed up at the chat briefly saying that he liked what he heard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Jan - I saw that! Well done to you! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm Nanti Moulah:

that sounds really lovely. those times alone with Mum, enjoying her company ~ times we do treasure later.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Wasn't Danny La Rue in Soldiers in Skirts?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm Nanti Moulah:

what is 'soldiers in skirts'? somehow assume it's not about the WACs.
Avatar 3:47pm worldsworstrecords:

he was... so was Don Arden!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Don Arden? I didn't know that!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm Jan Turkenburg:

And he told me afterwards that we should promote the chatroom possibilitiy and the way the show is archived on Focis more. He hadn't seen that yet ( I want to friendly persuade our mutual boss towards the KenZo system :-) )
Avatar 3:48pm worldsworstrecords:

it was an all-male revue, Nanti, mostly featuring ex servicemen
Avatar 3:48pm worldsworstrecords:

It toured for years
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm Nanti Moulah:

somehow guessed something similar. night out sort of thing.
Avatar 3:49pm worldsworstrecords:

Yeah, Don Arden started out as a singer before he moved into management
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm Nanti Moulah:

the chat would be great for the station, Jan. a really nice dimension to what we hear. as you know! :-D
Avatar 3:51pm Mr Fab:

Remember folks, we have both Alina's show "Cannibal Stew" and Ursula 1000 gracing Sheena's presence tomorrow. Set your alarms! And of course stay tuned for Martinibomb.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Cannibal Stew is an excellent show! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm Nanti Moulah:

so 'nelly' is your ear..why also a queer man?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Not sure ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm Nanti Moulah:

Nelly, Nancy.. just the gendered name thing, maybe.
Avatar 3:54pm worldsworstrecords:

I didn't know Nelly was ear. but I'd guess it's almost-rhyming slang for shell-like
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Only a couple of tracks to go and then it's Martinibomb with Medium Cool :-)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thank you all for listening! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Eskimo Nell??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm Nanti Moulah:

ho! there's a possibility too. slang is so damn interesting!
Avatar 3:55pm worldsworstrecords:

'not on your nelly' is a common phrase that means 'not a chance'
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm Nanti Moulah:

hmm!
Avatar 3:55pm worldsworstrecords:
