Nothing says the fifties like the Fonz, a grown man living in a suburban family’s garage with sexy designs on the mother AND daughter downstairs, while occasionally holding court in his “office” which is a toilet in a diner, controlled by a fat man called Al.
So here’s the new #dpquiz graphic to promote the FIFTIES which tenuously connects to the fact that the jackpots at Brass Monkey Leith (7pm)are now £50/week instead of tired old £20/week.
The revolution begins tonight and the cheat news for tonight is that Queen are involved in the music round, specifically this slab of epic from Flash:
Jackpot revolution has come to the Argyle Bar/Cellar Monkey. From tonight the weekly stack is £50 instead of £20 so that means mega hot pots from now on. Cheat news is Jackson Pollock (it’s one of the answers in round 2)
Newsroom at 9pm has £180 available to win (wow) and the cheat news is that Rui Da Silva features in the music round (see below)
Cheat: the music round contains Alice Deejay (see below).
I used to live in Peebles and had to get bus through Penicuik to get to Edinburgh to present the quiz. Listening to Alice Deejay, this tune specifically, made the Penicuik section of the journey bearable. That’s the power of Europop. But I don’t really need to anymore because I now live back in Edinburgh and, by Christ, life is better.
I still love the tune but I don’t NEED it quite so much.
