Fi phoned



Last week I posted a few from

Here are the rest

I wonder if they are brothers. Not found a lot about this band except they were Scottish and split up in 1979. This album cover does look familiar though

nice tune




This article appeared in the 1978 Jackie Annual. It would seem he was married then. But I suppose saying you want to kiss your wife is not a thing teenage fans want to hear! Tragically in 1979 his wife was killed in a car crash ( I do seem to remember that!) . He married again in 1984 and has 6 children


They had similar hair do's!!


Again??? Who is this bloke?? Ok can you tell the difference ?




awww but Rudolph is so cute :-)


& last but by no means least

A local Southport lad. Sailor, singer song writer who won Opportunity knocks in 1977. He was voted in for 13 weeks.
He only lived about 1/4 mile from my house & I do remember cycling up there with my mates to his house to see if we could catch a glimpse of him. Never did! Although (& don't tell anyone) I snogged his brother at a disco eek!!
As you know I lost my 1977 diary but found it again. I have just had a quick flick through ... because I would have written about it.... can't see it so it will have to wait for '1977 ~ the revisit'

But you know what I did see Saturday 7th May 1977

' Liverpool with 'J'. Bought a bag, patch to put on it, art equipment, ribbon & a sketch book. Saw my Auntie, her daughter & her two kids. Saw 'Our Kid' '
Annie I actually saw Our Kid would you believe it ???

Anyway back to Berni Flint.... he got to number 3 in the UK charts on 23/4/1977 with this song. Still know all the words lol
