live perf. on June 28, 1965 TV special Murray The K –
It's What's Happening, Baby

Kicking off this special sneak preview, a rare clip of Welshman Tom Jones
before he became a superstar and heartthrob to millions of women all over
the world. You saw Tom at the start of summer, 1965, entertaining animals
at the zoo singing his breakthrough international hit "Its Not Unusual" on
the American TV special Murray The K – It's What's Happening, Baby.


 Hello, I'm Vanessa Kensington... 
a beautiful, determined, intelligent young woman who partners
with British spy Austin Powers in the 1997 comedy film
Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery.


I'm sure you are familiar with Austin as the semi-regular host of the
Valentine's Day dances here at Shady's Place. I've got great news.
Austin and I are reuniting as hosts of our own radio show.

 Stay tuned for the debut of The Spy Who Shagged Me featuring the best
of Brit pop, coming soon to S-P-M-M... the station with personality



 I'm 
 Renee Clemons, 
a reporter working at the
San Francisco Globe on
the TV series Gracepoint,
the American remake of
the hit UK drama series
Broadchurch. I'm happy
to report that I will be
joining five other news
gathering women as
anchors of the new
S-P-M-M radio show
The I-Team. The
"I" does not stand
for "investigation."





You see, every song we
play on our show will have
an "I" word in the title.

THE VIDEO NOW!

Here's a sample "I" song from
our series, one of the biggest
hits of the 60s, the Four Tops
reaching #1 on the pop and
soul charts with-- "I Can't
Help Myself (Sugar Pie
Honey Bunch)!"

 I'm WPC Gina Dawson 
on the British period police drama TV series WPC 56. 


I'm the first WPC (woman police constable) to join the
Midlands Constabulary at Brinford Police Station in 1956.
 



Soon I'll be joining other
fetching, feisty females as
presenters on a S-P-M-M
radio show that we're going
 to call British British Swag,
and I've got a sample, a song
recorded and released 10 years
after I joined the police force.
That's around the time my
job description no longer
included making coffee
for the men. The song
is by The Rolling Stones,
a cut from their 1966
album Aftermath,

This is one of their most popular songs from the period, yet it was never
released as a single in English-speaking countries. Here are Mick and
his mates, the kings of British swag, on the UK music TV show
Ready Steady Go! doing-- "Under My Thumb." 


"Under My Thumb" - The Rolling Stones
(from Apr. 1966 album Aftermath, perf. on
May 27, 1966, ep. of Ready Steady Go!



 Hi, I'm 
 Kara Danvers... 
a bright, bubbly, somewhat
shy and awkward young woman
working as a personal assistant
and later a reporter on the DC
Comics superhero TV series
Supergirl. Some people say
I look and sound almost
exactly like Supergirl...
that the only difference
between the two of us
are the glasses and
the red and blue
caped costume.



That's crazy talk! Supergirl and I are nothing alike,
so just put that notion out of your mind, mister. 





I'm here to play a song sample from
my new radio show Kara Danvers
Supertunes coming soon to SPMM
Supersonic Radio. It's a wonderful
performance by a Nashville-based
band called imy2 which, in modern
code-speak, stands for "I miss you,
too." The group is fronted by blue-
haired beauty Annalise Mahanes,
a singer with the super power of
being able to cover songs from
a variety of genres and make
it seem like they were
written just for her.

Here are Annalise and imy2 with a super cover of
Michael Jackson's-- "The Way You Make Me Feel!"

cover by imy2 (Sept. 2020) 




 And I'm 
 Ellie Appleton. 
Do I remind you of
Lady Rose Aldridge
on Downton Abbey?
I get that a lot.

You say goodbye
and I say hello
and welcome to my
segment giving you
a sneak peak at my
new radio show
coming soon to
Shady's Place. 






As the co-star of Yesterday...
the 2019 musical rom-com
film that's loaded with great
 covers of Beatles songs, my
show on S-P-M-M Retrosonic
Radio will be wall-to-wall
Beatles, including classic
original recordings by the
Liverpudlian mop-tops
themselves, and terrific
Beatles covers by artists
of the past and present.
Quite rightly, my new
program will be called
Yesterday Once More. 







To close today's sneak
preview special, I've got
a sensational sample for
you. It is one of the best
covers I've found of a
song written by John
Lennon and recorded
by The Beatles. It was
released as the lead
song on their 1969
album Abbey Road
and as a single that
topped the chart
in the U.S.

Here's the Ukranian duo Sershen & Zaritskaya - Sergey on guitar, Daria on vocals -
taking it to the next level with-- "Come Together." Now this is Ellie Appleton.
Thanks for joining us and see you soon on Yesterday Once More!
