Hello and Goodbye

It was a weekend of hellos (Winter Olympics opening ceremony and Jimmy Fallon to The Tonight Show) and goodbyes (Jay Leno’s last show and X Factor cancellation) and Hello Goodbye to The Beatles 50th anniversary appearance on Ed Sullivan.  Each one was celebrated with song so without further adieu. … Russian Police Choir sing Daft […]
