Here’s the recording…
Peter Millington….The Confederates on 22nd March 1966 just before appearing on “Home Grown” a Television competition which was an early version of The X-Factor. Judges were George Melly – Jazz Singer, Johnny Morris – Animal man and children’s TV presenter, Mike Mansfield – Director of Southern ITV and Eve Taylor – Aritist Agent. The show was compared by Bill Pertwee of Dads Army fame (The Warden). — with Terry Chedzoy, Peter (Ginger) Millington, Keith (Budge) Harrison-Burgess, Paul Burton and Johnny Conroy.
Barry French… Great photo. What an amazing experience that must have been.
Pete Millington… That was certainly a “brown trousers” experience. So many heats to get to that final then to come second – hey ho, loved every minute of being a Confederate between 1962 to 1966/7
Robert Searle… Great photo Pete.
Colin Bell… You haven’t changed much Peter, have you got a picture in the attic..
Pete Millington… You’re too kind Colin. No I haven’t and I still avoid mirrors Oh to be 19 again
