Farewell Aunty Jack – Aunty Jack
Today’s song comes from the early 70s and an odd, yet very funny comedy series, Aunty Jack.
“Farewell Aunty Jack” was the closing theme to The Aunty Jack Show, played at the end of each episode. It was re-recorded and released as a hit single in late 1973 and spent 3 weeks at number one in the charts in Australia in March 1974. The music was written by Rory O’Donoghue, who also did the singing as the character “Thin Arthur”, whereas “Aunty Jack” (Grahame Bond) provided wise-cracks and other spoken commentary to the lyrics, addressed to the listener and the singer. – Wiki
I had the pleasure of interviewing Grahame Bond when I worked in radio and then meeting Grahame and Rory after the show when they toured The Aunty Jack Show and Tell in 2006.
