    Jimmy Clitheroe (would be known as Jim Clit these days), Tiny Tim and Charlie Drake, remember them all and remember how shit they were. Meet the Wife and Hugh and I were the first sitcoms I remember, first songs were by the Stones, Beatles and Herman’s Hermits

    We used to ride our bikes no handed at speed, had to sing “she loves you yeah, yeah, yeah” before the hands were allowed back on. Some nasty falls before we mastered the art.

    In reality the 60's was shit. Radio one didn't start until 1967 and even then it finished at 6pm on a Sunday for Songs of fucking Praise. Saturday morning radio had a request programme on where someone's granny would write in and ask them to play Robin Hall and Jimmy McGregor's :He's Football Crazy'. Bands like the Seekers dominated and it was mainly Middle of the Road crap for mums and dads. If you wanted pop music you really struggled.

    Before Choppers Bob, would have been a cheap bike, no gears just a basic one.
