Default Monochrome-TV-bride song!

Hi folks

Just listening to the 'Now Show' on R4 tonight (Fri 15/11/19) - the last item is a funny song by someone pretending to be a woman married to a man, who insists on watching B&W TV. I think you'll enjoy it if you can find it on the i-player!

cheers
Mark

Thanks for flagging that up Marc. I've listened to the Now Show for many years now. It got to be less funny, for a variety of reasons not appropriate to relate here, so I might have missed that song it Very contemporary as well as vintage! It fits in with the Henry Hall dance tune "Radio Times" or the Flanders and Swann song satires eg Hi-Fi "A Song of Reproduction" etc. I'm prone to collecting that sort of thing
