Today’s three A to Z tunes titles are from the letter WWW


WAITZING MATILDA ~ Frank Ifield https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0g0d39J2f-U
Think is track will always been known as Hello, and welcome to the TW Show ..........
The funny fact is Singer Frank Ifield wasn’t a real ‘Aussie’, but born in Northant’s England. But Frank and his family moved to New South Wales, whereby Frank became a ‘pop singer appealing to a large market. Around 1964 ex 2CH jock Tony Withers (not sure if that was his real name). Came to Europe, the UK and liked the new wave of hit musics stations, from boats anchored just of the UK coast, playing endless hit music. Most were Top 40, which had never been heard the likes of. TW as he was known as Tony Withers on Radio Alantia, in May 1964, but a few months later, joined the team as Tony Windsor the Big L, Radio London.....starting on the 3 to 6 slot, then being promoted a senior DJ and hosting the peak spot show 9 to noon. Sadly in the years to come Tony passed away!

WESTMINSTER WALTZ ~ Wally Stott and his Orchestra https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0g0d39J2f-U
Robert Farnon in the 1950s and up to the 70s was well know writer of very classy pieces of music, arranging many themes tunes in the 1950s and 60s. Listeners to Radio 390 in the mid 1960s will have remembered his easy listening music, featured in many of the stations programmes. The Westminster Waltz, was known as ' London Pride’ which at one time in the early 1960s was to be used as the opening tune for ITA (ATV, London’s television service at the weekends.) The tune is still very popular on dance floors.

WAITING FOR A GIRL LIKE YOU ~ Foreigner https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wln6NX0V4AQ
As what was know in the 1980s, Foreigner was a band listed under ‘new wave music’ but with an extra tag mark, ‘soft rock’. Too which this very classy ‘pop track’ was. It became a mass big hit almost everywhere. The tune was released in the UK, US most of Europe and in AU during the July 1981, and was a very popular tune on many radio stations around the world. Kinda fitting into pop, rock, and easy listening stations world wide!
