Andre Palfrey-Martin…..taken from the College Rag Mag 1964 – an interview with the Kinks, as they had been booked to play for the Summer Rag Dance in July that year….

Andre Martin….Plus – Support acts Tony & The Defiant from Eastbourne and Earl Richmond from Radio London ” Big L 266 Mts ”
Bob Cockburn….I’m sorry to own up but I used to like Tony Rivers !!
Andre Martin….Bob you have nothing to apologise about – he was and still is a great vocalist, with a track record that puts a lot of the so called “star” to shame. Saw him at the Witch Doctor several times, and with other bands that he created. Did you know that he appeared on Band Aid London show, as one of the backing vocalists. He is highly respected within the industry. Tried to get him as an interview on my Carnival FM show during the Hastings Carnival, but was prevented by technical problems. he was very keen to be interviewed.
Peter Millington…He was asked by Bruce Welch (Shadows) to arrange the vocals for a couple of songs for Cliff Richard in 1975. He became the driving force for Cliff’s backing vocals for 10 years and toured the world with him. All you have to do is listen to “Miss You Nights” to hear the genius of the man. His discography is truly stunning.
Jan Warren… Shouldn’t that be “Unit Four PLUS Two”?
Eric Harmer… Were the blues flames before the fire? Alway looking for the cause.
Gavin Martin… Worthing Town Hall with The Manfreds in autumn
Andre Martin… OMG This brings back memories from 52 years ago this week.
