Thread Name: Lyr Req: A Handful of Songs (Tommy Steele)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: 'A handful of songs' by Tommy Steele
A possible chance for UK 'Catters to check the Tommy Steele/Lionel Bart song: the docupic "Tommy Steele Story" made in 1957 (!) is on UK Channel 4 tv at 0440-0600 Monday night/Tuesday morning 15th April. I can't remember ever seeing the film so I don't know if Handful of Songs is in it BUT singer Nancy Whiskey IS.
Pop trivia: Modern Jazz sax star, club owner and raconteur, the late Ronnie Scott, played sax on Tommy's "Rock with the Caveman" but I suspect he kept it quiet!
I won't be taping it, I'm off to North Devon for a few days next week.
