Josie Lawson… Myself with John Walker taken by Laurence at The White Rock Hotel when they had their get together which I was invited to as Editor of Ebb & Flow Community Magazine.

Geoff Peckham… I don’t know why, but this song always reminds me of my paper-round along De La Warr Road, Bexhill. And Radio Caroline.

Phil Gill… You still doing the round?

Mark Randall… This song had me at ‘Loneliness is a cloak you wear” – courtesy of the two Bobs from the Four Seasons.

Barry Upton… Only 8 but remember it well

Another great photo from Josie Lawson.  Josie’s cousin Rev was the keyboard player. I would think this is Centre Page with the much missed Dave Easton anyone confirm.

Colin Fox… Dermot playing Bass.

Peter Gladwish… Yep! ‘Centre Page’ with the incomparible Dave Easton on vocals. I was the drummer when Rev was in the band, before my time with ‘Looking Back’. Two great bands!

Josie Lawson… This photo was taken when The Entertainer mag was around as I wrote about this with my cousin and they published it. I called the poem I think “My long lost cousin”. I don’t know if copies of the mag were ever kept but unfortunately a lot of my research etc were thrown as I explained to you due to ill health.

Colin Fox… The last time I saw Rev he was having a drink at Cooden Beach Hotel. He had really long grey hair and beard.

Josie Lawson…I think that may have been before he passed which was 23rd December 2004 sad days. Last time I saw Rev my cousin he said even though I have all my disabilities to follow my heart and dreams as I could make it.He said he followed my creativity within the Mags.It was so good meeting him again after all those years.Just by chance I heard his name when the band took a break.I heard his name and knew and he realised too and so a hug was had.Would be great to have the poem again.I have many floppy discs with many of my poems but that is where they Are at the moment until I can gain access.

Anyone help Josie with copies of The Entertainer magazine?

Colin Fox… That’s correct Josie. Everyone loved him even though he some problems.

Josie Lawson… This is my mother with Emile Ford taken by my father Edward Cecil Hibbit Lawson, when he worked in retirement at the Penguin Bingo. He was a photographer, artist and musician in 1930s but this was in the 70s. In the 30s my dad was a dance choreographer on the Hastings Pier ballroom and entered people for competitions.

Wendy Weaver… Fascinating

Josie Lawson… Miss both my parents but must admit dad was a great photographer….my dad is where I get some of my tricks of the trade from so to speak. Have myself never been professional, but I did once develop a black and white 35mm film at Stafford house near Brighton when on a sponsored adult back to education course in 1979.

Josie Lawson… I took these photos of the fabulous 6Ts back before 2009 when I was up and running non profit with Ebb & Flow community magazine… I had a brain op that year, retired, changed the name to Ebb & Flow (The New Voice)…and now continue with it as a hobby like my other creative word challenges with no rush, no deadlines.The Patron, name and advice still stays with it.
