5th February 2011 - A courageous curate, a cocktail and a legal battle surrounding a doll!

Local author Frances Clamp talked about how a 19th century fire in Brentwood High Street could have affected the course of the history of southern Africa, when the Curate of St Thomas’ Church risked his life by climbing onto the roof of the burning building. That Curate was Frances Rhodes, whose son Cecil – born a few years later – would give his name to Rhodesia! Frances joins Scott Ross every Tuesday afternoon on Phoenix FM between 2 and 3.

My clue to the Stuck in a moment quiz was that  the song had been the subject of a long running legal battle, one of the parties to which was a toy manufacturer.*

My cryptic Where am I? clue to a location somewhere in our area was “The environmentalist drinks a vodka and tomato juice cocktail when she stays here.”*

Track listing:

Britney Spears - Oops I did it again
Spiller feat Sophie Ellis-Bextor - Groovejet (If This Ain't Love)
Peter Gabriel - Sledgehammer
Cheryl Cole - The Flood
Tall Dark Friend - Corridors
Space - Female Of The Species
Darts - Daddy Cool
Gnarls Barkley - Crazy
Zero 7 - Destiny
Seal - Crazy
Rihanna - SOS
Muse - Unintended

Jackie Wilson - Reet petite
Bob Geldof - Silly Pretty Thing
Pink Floyd - Another Brick In The Wall (part 2)
Buzzcocks - Everybody's Happy Nowadays
Hard-Fi - Hard To Beat
Duran Duran - Save a prayer

* The answer to Stuck in a moment was Barbie Girl by Aqua, the legal dispute being between Mattel and MCA Records. Where am I? was Marygreen Manor Hotel, the cocktail in the clue being a Bloody Mary.
