    Sing something simple - I thoughht that was just our house that came throught to !! i remember my Mum doing the ironing to that while the rest of us ate paste sanwedges for our tea - about 6pm Sunday night. I had 2 crystal sets of different shapes that my Dad made from old junk. I thought they were great until I got my own radio around 66. I was still listening to Radio Caroline untill she went odff the air 1978 ish? The names you;ve said certainly get you thinking I recall all the things you mentioned

    Very true Alan.Where I live now,there is a Youth Centre that has been closed down(originally the Organiser retired).The Council have received applications from People who are interested, in "running"it.Nothing has happened and all you get is the old People moaning about the Youngsters.Believe me,they are not as bad as some Areas I know!

    Never was into Kung Fu Films.I Boxed at School and my Father was an old Naval Light-Heavyweight Champion(during the War).So we tended to watch Boxing a lot.Later "Raging Bull" was a favourite Film of mine.In the 80s I was taken to Karate,which I thoroughly enjoyed-especially when we were shown "Street Karate".These were "Moves"that could turn a Fight-without actually doing proper Karate.

    In the very early 60s,I went to Radio Luxembourg(with the Scouts) and met Dj Tony Prince.We were shown around the Studios.Like everybody on here,I would listen to it under the bed clothes.When Pirate Radio came,it was a great blessing(good old Beeb was still light years behind).Radio Caroline,and sometimes Radio London,was preferred.I can still remember in `67 when you got Radio 1 for the first time.Never have liked it.Pirate Radio must have influenced me because in the late 70s/and through the 80s,got involved in one around Forest Gate(one "Studio" was on the roof of the old Trebor Factory-in a shed).Those were certainly good days!:)

    When I lived in Guildford, the Emperor Rosko Road Show always came to the Civic Hall.It always got rammed.He would moan over the Mike that one of his Girls had got Pregnant(on the last visit).A great Cheer would go up.Then Bets were made,who would be the next one.There was some dirty b*st*rds there.:)

    Every Sunday Morning,my Mates would come round and sit in the Kitchen.My Dad would be doing the Lunch(he was an Officers`Cook in the Navy),and my Mum would chat to them whilst doing the Housework"Round The Horn","Jimmy Clitheroe","Bill Cotton" and others would be on the Radio.Mum used to love this.If we had bought new Records,we would play them and she would have a dance."That Mick Jagger,he is a lovely mover"was one of Her sayings.I can still Picture:rolleyes: the Scene now!

    Harry Potters parlour was either Princes St or queen St that ran from the high St to the Thames and his shop was on the left.

    I had a swallow done about 10 years ago and was amazed at the fine detailing and choice of colours available now. the prices though are colossal - I paid £80 10 years ago for a cover up job and yet 40 odd years ago I paid £4 for an eagle on my chest. I suppose its all relative.

    See below link to photos of his early days

    Four Tops - "Reach out I'll be there" number 1 October 1966

    Viota Tea Cakes.Always had a Salad on Sunday Afternoons-with Salad Cream,Battenberg Cake.Remember always going to sleep during the Film.Would wake up and get ready to go to the Club(Sunday Evenings).Always went to Bracklesham Bay(in Sussex)for a Caravan Holiday.Later we went to Selsey Bill.My Sister and I would spend many hours in the back of the Car,watching the bloody rain fall."This is nice" my Mum would always say.You had to enjoy your Holiday-whether it rained or the Sun Shone!It took bloody hours to get there.:D
