I am not the target audience for this show, as I am not particularly a Tom Jones fan. I have nothing against the man...I just grew up a bit too late to be one of his adoring fans. And, in this program shown on Australian television, it's obvious that folks DID (and still do) adore him. As this Welsh singing sensation belts out song after song, it's accompanied by near-constant screams from his adoring female fans...much like when the Beatles appeared on "Ed Sullivan".
