While online watching the BBC clip that Erik300 included in his post, I found a few versions on youtube that include Louis Armstrong singing "What A Wonderful World" (beautiful !), each with different video. One of them may be the one Thom plays each Friday near the end of the show.

Below I've included a link for the page that contains a spoken introduction to the song by Satchmo, and also, in the first comment, the story behind the song, and the lyrics.

Hey Thom, can you believe Tony Bennett was offered this song, but turned it down ? Lucky for us, bad for Tony.

Thanks again, Erik300, for posting this.

I needed it on what has been a dark and rainy day, which I had intended to spend getting a good dose of vitamin-D while working in the yard. Watching the video you posted has put a smile back on my face again for a few minutes.
