Nigel Ford… Never heard of “Return to Diango” by the Upsetters, track or band…. and yet everything else is very familiar!!
John Storer… From a time when the singles chart actually meant something. More classic 45s than not on the list, especially “Sweet Dream”, probably my favourite Tull track. I feel a Spotify playlist is in order. Nostalgia is a wonderful thing. Listen to The Archies “Sugar, Sugar” today and you realise it was actually a quality pop song! Can someone complete Nigel Ford’s musical education and link to a video of the wonderful “Return of Django” by The Upsetters.
Andy Qunta… Great memories! Great times at the Disc Jockey too!
Jim Breeds… He Ain’t Heavy – The Hollies. Got into a huge row with my Dad when he saw them perform that on TOTP. He said “Look at the length of their hair!! What nonsense they should sing that when they look like people who would beat you up in a dark alley for your wallet”. Always insightful, was my Dad :-/ He just was of the generation who thought we “Should turn down that bloody racket and go get a haircut”. The Generation Gap.
Nigel Ford… the very next day to me posting this, Tony Blackburn started his Pick of the Pops Radio 2 show with it and of course I recognised it immediately!…. but somehow never knew what it was called,….but am I bovered??!!
