Tim Anderson… Another rubber tree plant!
Matt Thomas… Popcorn
Lyn Humphrey… Probably Perry Como, ‘Catch a Falling Star’ or ‘Magic Moments’, or Tommy Steel ‘Little White Bull’. Pretty cool, huh?
Clive Richardson… Remember the theme to ‘A Summer Place’ from the tv programme. Can’t remember anything about the programme but still love the track, to this day.
Alan Esdaile… remember my dad getting an old 78 wind up gramophone after an auntie died, with lots of 78’s including Laura London He’s Got The Whole World Is In Hands. Also remember singing along and copying Frankie Vaughan movements on the television to ‘Tower Of Strength’.
Steve Thorpe… Roy Orbison ‘Oh Pretty Woman’
Chris Meachen…The laughing policeman on 78, & Elvis ‘wooden heart’ on a wind-up gramophone.
Mick Knights… The first single I bought was yackity yack by the Coasters, much to the dismay of my parents.
Jon McCallion…Love my wind up gramophone Alan, still play lots of Sinatra Dean Martin Elvis Presley and Duke Ellington sounds really good.
Glenn Piper… She Wears Red Slippers on an old 78 at my maternal grandparents place
Coco Pops… Radio Luxembourg! my big sister blaring it out of her bedroom! circa 1960’s
Paul Morfey… Frank Ifield yodelling
Will Cornell… Watching Dick Clark and “American Bandstand” I could not figure out how the dancing kids flipped their arms to twirl their partners without the arms ripping out of the sockets. I give that memory a “4” outta “5”, Dick.
Mick Bolton… My grandad playing Beethoven’s Appassionata piano sonata. I was 3 at the time – in 1951. And hearing the theme tune to Listen With Mother every day on the radio.
Eric Harmer… Family favourites on Sundays.boring songs
Alan Pepper… One song that still haunts me today is Moon River by Danny Williams . I think that was the first music I can recollect from when I was about four or five playing on the wireless ! Every time I hear it now gives me shivers in a nice way though !
