British musician Tony Burrows, otherwise known as 'the man of 1000 voices', sang on around 100 top 20 hits during the 60s and 70s. Tony lent his voice to a number of acts including Edison Lighthouse, Ivy League and the Flower Pot Men. But it was his novelty hit 'Gimme Dat Ding' with The Pipkins that made its way to the top of the New Zealand charts back in 1970. Tony joins the show from his home in the United Kingdom.
