  1. Hedley Says:

    Assuming this televised around 1966, it was a magical time for kids and music. The ITV had blown it open in 1963 with Ready Steady Go on a Friday night compared by Dusty and then Cathy McGowan, the BBC countered a year later with Top of the Pops which was shown on a Thursday. Somewhere out in the North Sea Radio Caroline and Wonderful Radio London were pirates on a boat.

    So the Hollies and a very young Graham Nash had a hit courtesy of the 10cc guy and we had music coming from all sources.

    The Christmas season means a wonderful revisit to some of those early albums by way of deluxe comprehensive reissues, as I mentioned a few days ago. Mrs MDH reminds me that I am out of touch with current music and that is absolutely true.

      My Dear Hedley,
      This is the first song I remember hearing of theirs, but there were lots more after this which played enough that I still remember most off the words.

      I looked up Top of the Pops as I hadn’t heard of it. I was amazed at how long it was on TV. I watched programs like Hullabaloo and Shindig which had all the best groups.

      Nice to know where Graham Nash come from before Crosby, Stills and Nash, one of my all time favorite groups.

      You can tell Mrs.MDH that I too know nothing of current music. Even in the car I listen to music from my era.
