FRANCIE & JOSIE...FAREWELL, CHINAS...
I used to watch the FRANCIE & JOSIE TV show back in
the '60s. They were massive superstars in Scotland at the time,
and even when they amicably went their separate ways, the duo
were held in high esteem and fond affection by the Scots public for
years afterwards. In the '80s & '90s, they got back together for a
couple of 'farewell' performances, the final one being from which
this extract comes. It's in the tradition of music hall acts of a
bygone age, but no less funny for that. - so enjoy!
(Incidentally, whoever posted this on YouTube mis-titled
it. It should read Sweet Violets, not Sweet Violins.)
