Foray to the Foyer

A foray normally suggests something alien, but in fact this one’s just the opposite as the foyer in question is, of course, the recently refurbished bar at the Brentwood Centre, where Phoenix FM has got some great Saturday night gigs lined up over the next few months. Next weekend we’ve got another of our popular Quiz Evenings; then on 9 March it’s the welcome return of live music – with an exciting list of acts already lined up, including Mila Falls, who recently popped in to Tony Smith’s Sunday Lunch and whose song “Party in the stars” we heard this morning.

This morning’s Word Up was probably the easiest lyric teaser you’ve ever heard – although maybe only if you’re around a certain age:

Buying bread from a man in Brussels-
He was six-foot-four and full of muscles.
I said, “Do you speak-a my language?”
He just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich!*

 *The Word Up song was Down Under by Men at Work.
