The 5 O’clock Shadow: Friday March 11. 2022

Today’s Shadow fits in to the Friday Feature Presentation theme of FREEDOM (hint, hint).

The theme of today’s 5pm hour makes The Shadow band’s name particularly ironic. The lead singer came up with the band’s name, during his travels in Eastern Europe, where they found a park in Budapest with missing statues, taken away after Communism fell. Seeing that there was a playground in the park, he said “…being in that environment just made the phrase pop into my head.

The original singer/songwriter was a member of Wham!
