What a Diff’rence a Day Makes

Bloody hell! We’re turning into Two Way Family Favourites:

“Cue the great Dinah W:

What a difference a day made, twenty four little hours
Brought the sun and the flowers where there use to be rain
My yesterday was blue dear
Today I’m a part of you dear

Is this on YouTube, Jim?”

Bruce, of BFPO Manchester requests this for all his old pals back home at AWL Akrotiri:

…That was the hit commercial recording (very nice )…but here’s some rare film of Dinah performing it live with Louis Jordan’s Orchestra…

    Thanks, Jim. I am overwhelmed. Also for reminding me of ‘Forces Favourites’ – that says a little about our ages.

    Who was that guy doing the intro on the second clip? He looks kind of familiar. Didn’t he go on to be famous?
