Looking for Ray Wood.

Lucy Pappas… I’ve become particularly nostalgic reading SMART posts. I moved back a couple of years ago after being away for many years and have caught up with a number of old friends, particularly in the music scene. One friend who I never sung or played music with or even went to pier gigs with, even though he was there, is Ray Wood. From Sandown, he went to Priory Rd while I went to the High School. Does anyone know him/remember him/ know where he is? It would be such fun to catch up. Thanks for your help x

Anyone help, I will pass on any messages received.

Mick O’Dowd… I’m not sure but I think if he went to Sandown in 50′s/60′s and went to Priory Road it might be the boss of the tarmac/drive firm opposite the Cemetry on The Ridge.

Yvonne Cleland… Memories…… just left school, and met Will!

Jim Hobbs… Emperor Rosko and the Radio One Club, great stuff, joke was Radio One reception in Hastings was bloody awful in those days. Reception on all ‘platforms’ is now brilliant – shame the content is shit!

Alan Esdaile… I got this album in my collection. Some great Atlantic tracks on here.
