By now you’ve probably realized that it is in fact Monday. There is nothing we can do about it, no matter how much we might gnash our teeth and shake our fists at the Heavens. So to help you manage to find the energy to get through the day why not enjoy a bit of 1969 comedy and rousing music from this March 28, 1969 episode of This Is Tom Jones – featuring Jerry Lee Lewis? The duo cover Great Balls Of Fire, Down The Line, Long Tall Sally, and Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On!
