OR SIT IN sour-faced sod-it silence. Short-lived revue-type palaver rounding up, Spanish Inquisition-like, “top” Northern cabaret talent, shoving them in front of a rolling camera, then salvaging “best bits” for public airing. Which included PHIL “RUBBER FACED RIBALDRY” COOL, BOBBY SOX, THE IVY LEAGUE and THE DON JUANS.
