    And, hello again to our charming (and modest) hosts! Absolute nonsense this ... and it will mean nothing to anyone who hasn't seen "Line of Duty", which is exceedingly popular in the UK - not least with Lynda! I have no idea whether it has crossed the Pond. Anyway, in view of your signature, Lynda, this is dedicated to you ... Nico decided to make an unexpected appearance to sing the praises of Ted Hastings!

    Scotch & Soda - learned from The Kingston Trio. This is a much different song from anything else the Trio ever recorded; jazzy rather than folky, but perfect for Bob Shane's whiskey baritone.
    It was discovered by the Trio through the parents of the baseball player Tom Seaver, who had first heard it in a hotel piano lounge in 1932 when on their honeymoon in Phoenix, Arizona. They liked it so much that they had the piano player write it down for them so it would be "their song." One member of the trio (Dave Guard) was dating Seaver's older sister (Katie) at that time, and heard the song on a visit to the Seaver home. Although it is credited to Guard (he had it copyrighted in his name on March 30, 1959, my 15th birthday and just about when I was entering my "folky" phase.), the trio never discovered the real songwriter's name, though they searched for years.
    This is another that I've always played on guitar and am making my ukulele Scotch & Soda debut this week.

    High Hopes (1959) by James Van Heusen and Sammy Cahn, with some synthesizer sounds via uke and effect pedal.

    (I traded one of my ukes for a couple of effect pedals, and although I don't obviously know what to do with them, it's fun to experiment.)

    when i first read this, i thought whiskey baritone was a supercool kind of ukulele, and did i need to try and find and buy one, until i came to my senses!!!
