Anyone Remember these 2 Songs?

Post by Jazzmind » Sun Sep 21, 2003 11:06 pm



OK CFNY radio spirits -

I'm looking for a couple of songs that were only ever played on CFNY

the first is called "Toast" and it was cult fave - a little plinky new wave number, about eating toast

the second - don't know if this is the real title - was something I remember as "My Old Man's A Joke" the story of a young guy making fun of his coal mining father and his stupid little British life, then going to work in the coal mine after his dad dies. I related to the kid then, I AM the dad now. A heart wrenching piece of work.

Big thanks to anyone who can help me out.

peace. the final frontier.

That song "Toast" seems to be a popular one! Thanks to the folks who provided the lyrics, but who sang it?

TO AUDIOFOOL it's feb 25th i'll be online every nite on winmx 9:30 to 2or 3am .If you could provide knobby clegg my old man WOW thanks. i've also tryed to download the extras cicular impression .However iv'e dicovered it's how people label songs. that perticular song was found by asking for EXTRAS 1 lone entrie at the bottom read as follows ;THE EXTRAS_CIRCULAR IMPRESSION that stupid under score changes the way the search engine looks .I'VE found this CFNY site the absolute best for finding music that i listened to .Anyone remember the Romo report on chum fm.I'm trying to find the intro for that. Pete & Geets had the most listeners in T O!mYSTERY SONG : BANG GOES ANOTHER BOMB ON ANOTER TOWN while the RAF have gin & tea ;chorus: WILL I BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS DA DA DAH DAAH DAH ?artist & title?TNXS

Anonymous - Toast was sung by Streetband, who had one Paul "Wherever I Lay My Hat" Young as their lead singer. Look here: http://spiritofradio.ca/Songs.asp

smokalotoepot/CFNY_NUT#001 - it doesn't look like it's happening.... I don't see either name as online in my Hotlist.... get yourself a web-based email ( ie yahoo, hotmail, etc) since you say you don't have an ISP email addy and email me at the address attached to my posting name (click on it to the right) so we can get something worked out.

I'd like to move this conversation away from this site, as I don't wanna get the site owner's chops busted over this issue.
