Colin Bell mentioned on a previous post that he has fond memories of hearing Runaway by Del Shannon at the fair on the oval. Two records that always remind me whenever I hear them, are Doris Day Move Over Darling and Chris Montez The More I See You.

Caz Simpson… Let’s Dance, Chris Montez. Fire, Crazy World of Arthur Brown.

Jim Breeds…. Anything by Fairground Attraction? 😉 Actually, Edgar Winter Group – Frankenstein. Although it also reminds me of bank holiday at Santa Pod in the 70s.

Pete Fairless… Ah, I remember the fairs on The Oval in the mid ’70s, so it was a lot of Glam – Slade, T. Rex, Suzi Quatro and, of course, that bloke we’re not supposed to mention… Think I might have first heard R Dean Taylor at the fair, too!

Peter Millington… “Timing a tick a tick a tick Timing” Jimmy Jones-1960

Caz Simpson… I loved Timing!!

Leigh Wieland-Boys… My Coo Ca Choo (or however it’s spelt) by Alvin Stardust immediately came to mind

Peter Millington… Caz I think it must be an age thing – Music was never louder than at the fair in the early 1960s

Caz Simpson… The fair was the most magical place in the world Peter, and it was the louder than loud music that made it so.
