U.T.D. was Unabridged Telephone Directory

Tim Moose Bruce… Die Laughing on the Archery ad would have been late 70s. Loved the archery. Did some good gigs there and saw some great bands. Dr Feelgood, Dumpy’s Rusty Nuts and Wilko Johnson with Norman Watt Roy from the Blockheads on bass were memorable nights.

New Radio Caroline Badges

Kevin Carleonis… New Radio Caroline badges coming soon. Reminds me of the 70’s when Alan used to make them for me on Hastings Pier. Mason’s Music of course, in those days for The Caroline Roadshow.

Alan Esdaile… Did you get into trouble with the authorities with the leaflets, Kev?

Kevin Carleonis… No Alan. I got round it by informing people that it was illegal to listen to it

Bubble Wrap – who likes doing this?

Jan Warren… Yeah and still like a good popping session now?!!

Clifford Rose… I even rip old jiffy bags open just to pop the insides.

Jan Warren… Oh Clifford, you’re a real addict then?! Haha… there’s nothing like a sheet of bubble wrap to keep you entertained for a while?! – very therapeutic too?

Pete Prescott… I did that this morning !  I’m still a child !

Janet Rennie… I used to wrap myself in it , made a little pillow and go to sleep

Pauline Richards… Pleas stop! Or just bring it into st.michaels hospice shop at queens rd. We are desperate for it to wrap our bric a brac in. Thanks in advance!

Joe Knight… Still do love packages

Elaine Stock… I still do this, love the huge ones you can stamp on! lol

Dave Nattress… Definitely the large bubbles, some of the suppliers of materials we receive use air-filled bags to pack out the boxes and to stop the stuff moving around in transit, (and other types of popular vans), in long strips and the bubbles are really large.  They make a really great noise when popped one after the other on a concrete floor – recommend it – great big kid’s stuff.

Perri Ann Haste… I still do, you can’t beat a bit of bubble wrap therapy
