This week's show is a little more on the charming and whimsical side :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

washing up on the shore, whew!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:01pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Granny :-)
Avatar 3:05pm Mr Fab:

Oh no, we've been on the wrong playlist! ok here's the show. Better go back to the other playlist and tell everyone to come over here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:05pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Other playlist? Oh! Future one. lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:06pm Rich in Washington:

Whoops!
Avatar 3:06pm worldsworstrecords:

ahh! That's better... we've all been having a conversation over on HWM 61!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm Otis Fodder:

Here we are, I was on the other playlist. Sorted and still listening in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

having a sneaky peek at the future, eh? ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm Alina Brennaman:

ahhh, the REAL playlist at last, hi all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hello, hello, hello everyone! :-)
Avatar 3:07pm Mr Fab:

GG's planning her next show before she's even done this one. Quite the worker bee.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08pm Rich in Washington:

I've seen the future and it was a playlist.
Avatar 3:08pm worldsworstrecords:

haha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09pm Otis Fodder:

#HWM #060 is in the 23rd parallel universe over, if you all wish to join. Consult the doctor, he can transport you there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I've started a new work schedule so that I have the last week of the month off, aside from broadcasting :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Putting the finishing on #060 tomorrow ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

In these monologues, Joyce Grenfell portrays the wife of a vice-chancellor of an Oxbridge university :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm ARB:

charming indeed, this is creating the best mood!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@ARB - excellent! I'm glad you're loving the vibe :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Joyce Grenfell, as well as being an excellent monologist, was also in a number of classic Ealing comedies, and originated the "jolly hockey sticks" line.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Probably her most famous and beloved monologue is of a nursery school teacher chatting to her small charges, including continually admonishing a small boy: "George ... don't do that" :-)
Avatar 3:20pm worldsworstrecords:

She was wonderful
Avatar 3:20pm worldsworstrecords:

the closest we have today would be someone like Miranda
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

:-) Such a lovely lady as well, by all accounts. Very much missed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

This is a photograph of her before she was married: www.gettyimages.co.uk...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

oooh, looks like Drew Barrymore!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Such a lovely photo! :-)
Avatar 3:30pm Martinibomb:

two playlists?
Avatar 3:31pm worldsworstrecords:

Good lord: I would never have recognised her
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The other playlist is a show on the 29th - I'm getting my ducks lined up :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

yay for WFMU! i am constantly exposed to so many amazing recording artists i never knew before. this is wonderful, DJGG!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm Jan Turkenburg:

Listening in my armchair theatre :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thank you, Granny! :-) <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Jan - the perfect venue :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

pairs well with the rose candies my girlfriend gave me <3
Avatar 3:38pm worldsworstrecords:

Oh my god! What was this the theme tune to?
Avatar 3:38pm worldsworstrecords:

Was it Open House?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I do believe you're right! It certainly sounds very familiar.
Avatar 3:40pm worldsworstrecords:

NO! It was the How To Do It sketch by Monty Python!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Ooo! Rose candies! I do love those - and violet creams too :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

There's a shop in Brighton that sells violet Turkish delight which is one of my favourite things :-)
Avatar 3:43pm Mr Fab:

(Python voice:) Thanks Darryl, that was GREAT!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I love how cheerily passive-aggressive this character is ;-)
  3:44pm Dave In St Albans UK:

Hi DJGG. Joyce Grenfell"s voice takes me back many decades. DJ Georgy Don't Do That!
Avatar 3:44pm worldsworstrecords:

The very one!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hello Dave! :-) Same for me - I have a very cosy feeling listening to this :-)
  3:46pm Dave In St Albans UK:

Did we ever find out what George was doing? ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I think most people think he's picking his nose - but Joyce would never divulge. She said it was far more fun to hear the theories ;-)
Avatar 3:48pm Mr Fab:

I liked that fake bagpipe song.
  3:48pm Dave In St Albans UK:

I think we came up with some pretty outrageous theories at the time, in primary school!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I shall post my favourite monologue on the group in a bit :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I mean, he could be indulging in some pocket billiards as little boys do ... :-)
Avatar 3:51pm worldsworstrecords:

...big boys too, in my experience ;-)
  3:51pm Dave In St Albans UK:

Pocket billiards. Now there is a phrase that I haven't heard in a long time. We generally reckoned that he was playing with his "willy" too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Well ... yes. ;-) To both. lol
Avatar 3:52pm worldsworstrecords:

It's been another wonderful HWM, Georgy. I don't know how you do it every week
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thank you, Darryl! That's made me smile :-)
  3:53pm Dave In St Albans UK:

Excellent show. Worthy of a repeat listen tomorrow. Thank you DJGG.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thank you Dave! :-)
Avatar 3:55pm Martinibomb:

fabtastic show as always sorry wasn't much of a chatter ... equipment issues but I think it's sorted and I can actually DJ next Lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thank you MB!
And speaking of MB - he's up next with Medium Cool so stay tuned!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thank all of you lovely people for listening :-) <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

dang! already? these hours just fly by! thanks, GG!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm back on Friday with The Flange & Frigate Show - see you then :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thank you Granny :-)
Avatar 3:59pm Martinibomb:

Okay I've hit the BUTT connect
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm ARB:
