Jingle All the Way…

Dashing through town early Christmas Eve, rounding onto Northumberland Street, shoppers, fair rides and…the strains of All of Me. Yes, three wise monkeys - Faye, Dylan and Tom - were entertaining the hordes with a few seasonal numbers and, as Faye told Bebop Spoken Here, Marks and Simons’ jazz standard was the first non-Christmas tune of their day. In regulation Santa hats, our three wise monkeys had amassed a tidy sum and this was just gone ten. By about noon they’d be heading towards their first squillion.  Oh, Jingle Bells…
