A rendition of the Andy Williams number “Almost There”. One of my perennial favorites.
My parents had an Andy Williams album and I used to listen to it as a boy and sing along to the songs quite a bit. So I tend to know some of this guy’s repetoire fairly well. Indeed I would describe myself as an Andy Williams fan and would be happy to visit his birthplace

If there is one artist that deserves the london Philharmonic makeover more than any other (sorry Buddy, sorry Carpenters, I love you too) then this is the one it has to be, and it hasn’t happened yet.

Oktoberfest is, for Germans, one of the most important dates in the Christian calendar, but while drinking copious amounts of alcohol and swaying from side to side, spare a thought for the North Koreans, and their leader King John the second, who needs to give up his weapons testing. Count Sproey von Weytzentrenner has no truck with Communists, and is sure that King John of Korea feels likewise, and sings him “Born Free” in a hamster’s voice, accompanied on the beerstein.
Watching this I can’t help feeling a lot of reminiscence as it was only 5 years ago but still my wife was able to walk freely around the home without crutches. How fine she looks in this video.
