Paul Crimin… Why do you whisper green grass.
Bart van Dommelen… Windsor Davies played a magnificent role. Great actor.
Jim Breeds… Everything I disliked about the sort of cr** my parents liked is encapsulated by this advert!
Martin Richter… roy hudd is a master :-0
Jim Breeds… Yes, I liked him. Especially on Radio doing the News Huddlines. But this “variety” stuff was everything that was bad about light entertainment.
Martin Richter… he’s a variety genius – paul merton is the same with b&w films ?
Chris Baker… Well Jim, if you liked it, you’d be as old as your parents!
Dave Nattress… Would I be right in saying Mama’s gonna take us to the zoo tomorrow? And…we can stay all day.
Neil Partrick… Message Music was interviewed by me and he mentioned what it was like working with Julie http://oldfolkrebels.blogspot.com/…/kelvin-message-life…

Phil Gill… Ten pence!!
Alan Esdaile… I think this is the programme price Phil. However we were seeing top rock acts on the pier for 50p/60p at the time.
Pete Fisher… Actually Phil, it says here that both Dave and Alan of the Athelstan Band play electric plectrum guitars, which I believe you do as well. It also says that Alan has learnt to play the Hawaiian Steel Guitar in an effort to produce a different sound, and that both brothers have learnt to play banjo. I think this sets a remarkable example to upcoming musicians like yourself, which you might do well to take note of…
Barry French… Tina worked at Mullett Smith Music around this period. Occasionally she would play keyboards with Bob Smiths Band the Alamo at the Yorkshire Grey Pub London Road
David Miller… Aha – those must be the electric plectrum guitars of which they spoke…I don’t see what makes the plectrums electric though…batteries, maybe?

Pete Millington… Audience at the ITT Dance held at the White Rock Theatre on 10th January 1975 – My sister Jane is third from right front row (is in front second from right!) I recognise several other faces but not their names – any ideas?

Matt Thomas… Had that very same picture of Peter Goodwright up in the bar – would love to know where all those pictures went

Alan Esdaile… Can you remember who the support was Colin?
Matt Thomas… Probably played one of my favourite tunes ‘Rosetta’
Mick O’Dowd… Remember working on this one. I think it may have been Martin-Casson only gig at White Rock.
Colin Bell… I can’t be absolutely certain but I think they were called ‘Highway’, I remember the actual night very well as they were a heavyish rock band and the audience hated them! I should add that it wasn’t because Highway were bad far from it, it was just not what the audience were expecting as a support act, I liked them! The late Paul Casson and I hid in the bar til the second half when F & P did their set. Fortunately the night then ended well! Not the best night to be compere, especially in my home town..lol..Also backstage it was clear F & P didn’t get on, they arrived separately didn’t speak a word to each other and left separately without a word. On stage together chemistry, offstage………Ah the memories!..
