TFMFS Show 78

Topflight FMS
is an internet radio show hosted by, exiled Scouser, Andy Ellis (renowned doorman from back in the day…The Barry’s, The Country club on Cantril Farm etc) and his good friend Erik Lefler.

The show goes out sporadically, when work commitments allow, and has a loyal following in the States and the UK.

My initial interest stemmed because Andy was an old mate, right back to our school days in St. Nicholas RC (on Brownlow hill Liverpool) in the 70’s, however I can honestly say that I am hooked now, regardless of old friendship connections.
On the musical side, it can go all over the place,.... Dance, Northern Soul, Punk, Ska and Reggae (So its right up my street ….although Rod Stewart pops up far too often for my liking)?
Occasionally they will do “specials” and 2011 saw them do Ska specials, Ska-thern soul specials and two Liverpool Band specials. But to be honest most of the time the best part of the show is the banter between the two hosts, most of the time led by Andy’s reminiscing of Liverpool.. and some of the time its out and out alcohol fuelled.

The End fully recommends that its readers check out their web page and shows here;-
when you're on the page, you can choose what show you want to listen to by going to the little black box on the right hand side and clicking the show link, or scrolling down the page and clicking on the show that takes yer fancy.
You can hear shows where Andy is talking about things like; The End, old bars and clubs in Liverpool (the Scarletts bar, Houlhans, Eric’s the Swinging Apple…and Andy’s favourite Michelle Claires), Liverpool and Everton, School (st. Nic’s) old Friends, Ins & Outs, etc and they never tire about talking of their love for Paul McCartney and Bono.
Check the shows out- there’s something there for everyone.

You can also friend them up on facebook here!/TopFlightMFS

The video with this post is the preamble for Topflight show 78 (Barbers I have known) and features Andy reminiscing about Wedge haircuts/ Chelsea 7’s and Liverpool barbers; Bert Jacksons, Kensington and Dave’s (opposite the Royal Hospital) and Georges (west derby)
