  1. I was there that particular Friday Evening at The Empire Cinema, Killamarsh and had a Spud Gun! I was so worried after they closed it down early and called the Police, that I threw my Spud Gun into a garden along Kirkcroft Lane on my way home to Norwood. I thought better of it the next morning though and went back early to retrieve it. The Sheffield Star did run with the story as their Main Headline soon after the event. I kept a copy of the front page as a Souvenier for years, but don't know where it is now. Nelly and Queenie were the names of the two Attendants and it was owned by the same family who operated the Rex at Intake. 'Fag Ash Lil' was not at Killamarsh Cinema. I remember the gent - 'Maigret', who used to smoke his pipe standing at the back sometimes on Friday Evenings, he may have been part of the Ward family. It was often so rowdy on Friday Evenings, that the lights were left on for most of the performance. I remember sago balls fired from pea-shooters going through the projection light and the odd egg flying about! The local village Policeman would also sometimes call in and stand at the back as well. If anyone wants to search The Star Archives for the front page, ... I think that it happened sometime between 1963-66.

  18. Hello Glyn?, I'm an Administrator for Shape Of The Rain's Facebook Page, would you like to join us on there for the latest news of the Boys etc? If so, search on Facebook for Shape Of The Rain and then 'Like'! As you probably know, the Band have been in the Studio during 2010/11 recording some new versions of songs from their Riley, Riley, Wood and Waggett Album. They are hoping that the results will be made available soon. Brian Wood - Guitarist and Pedal Steel Player with the Band, contacted me the other day, he has heard about you from somebody and would like me to try and put you in touch with him. I think that he wants your recollections of the Weston Park Concerts etc, in relation to Info about the Band that he is putting together, to go with the new recordings. I would be grateful if you would contact me and then I can give Brian your details. Brian has for some time has been a member of Dave Berry's Band, The Cruisers. Hoping to hear from you, Regards, Roy

  22. Hi, Thanks for the reply. From what you say about the gig being at Chesterfield R U Club, we are I think almost Certainly talking about the same thing. When I said I remembered it was a 'Daytime' event, I can remember it being light when it started, it was probably late afternoon/early evening, as you say. I remember that there were other people on the Bill besides Edgar Broughton, but couldn't remember who. Now that you have mentioned it though, I do remember One band was The Strawbs. It was disappointing that Shape Of The Rain didn't manage to play, as that was one of the main reasons why we had gone. It's strange that we have a connection being at the gig all those years ago. Take care. R
  23. I remember going to a Daytime Music Performance at Chesterfield Rugby Ground around 1970 which featured Edgar Broughton. Is that the one you are talking about? Take care, R
