  1. I have been having problems trying to connect to AOL over the last few weeks. Anyone else having problems ?
  2. Brandi De Frank appeared on the Sweeney as a stripper. In the episode entitled "Supersnout" First shown on 15/9/75 Brandy must be in or around 60 now ! Wonder if she's still on the circuit ? Cheers Chris
  3. I remember one of the strippers who performed on one Saturday Lunchtime appeared on the SWEENEY the following week - as a stripper of course.

    Does anyone remember the Top Rank

    Tickets for New Years Eve at The RANK were like gold in the early years. Best memory was going to see The SMALL FACES perform in the late Sixties. They were only on for about an hour but they were brilliant - with Steve Marriot in fine form.
  5. Chas and Dave have called it a day - today. Is my mind going or did they actually appear at The Sheffield Show one year. I seem to recall RABBIT booming across Hillsborough Park - must be a few years back. Was anyone there ? Cheers Chris

    Yes I agree the Juke Boxes fascinated me as a kid. There was so little pop music played on radio that it was often the only way of hearing the latest releases. Cheers
  7. Anyone with memories of this coffee bar down Hillsbro. Can just remember going in with my parents on Sat mornings back in Sixties. Did they have a juke box - or was that another place in the area ?
  8. I was at the game on the Kop with the Forest fans - I remember looking at the Liverpool end at kick off and wondering why it was not full - all the Forest fans were in the ground at 3.00 with only a few late comers still outside. I was at the Owls v Everton semi at Villa Park a few years earlier - the police had a filter system on the roads leading to the ground - if you had no ticket you could not even get near the turnstyles . If Only !!
  9. Thanks for the replies folks - I think the original Motown Revue was a few years earlier. This concert was held when the stars were established in the UK. The City Hall was full - the review concerts were poorly attented. Would have loved to have seen Bowie - bet that was awesome. Saw a lot of Motown acts at the Fiesta - Four Tops , Junior Walker etc. Booker T did a concert at the City Hall with Blue Mink on the same bill around 1970 - that was a good one. Cheers Chris
  10. After watching the Motown 50 programmes on TV I was trying to recall a concert I attended at the City Hall in the late sixties . Stevie Wonder and Martha and The Vandellas were on the bill - the place was shaking with everyone up on their feet dancing and singing. But who else was on the tour with them. Can anyone remember ? Chris

    Myers Grove School

    Thanks for that info doc. Never heard of the Leavers though. One thing that sticks in my memory - a PE teacher called Dubberly - he was a bit of a bully and got his payback in the staff/pupils rugby match - some kind soul punched him in the stomach and he was doubled up for about 5 mins - great days !!!

    Myers Grove School

    People keep telling me it was John and Sheila Sherwood - no it was not - they were athletes and taught PE. I don't think John ever worked at Myers Grove.

    Hi Tash, I walked past the site of DB yesterday and the memories flooded back. Was too young to go to the MOJO but looked forward all week to Sat nights at DB. I recall often standing outside chilled to the bone in winter waiting for Stringfellow to open the place up. I remember it was often the middle of the week before I could hear properly again. great days Chris
  14. Can anyone recall the names of the husband and wife teachers who taught Economics - Commerce etc. They were fifty plus and very old fashioned. I don't know how long they had been at Myers but they were there 67/68
  15. It was all part of the song - if you listen to Lazy Sunday closely it is in the background - so the crowd response would not have offended Steve and the lads. Cheers Chris
