2nd April 1979

Monday 2
Skived Business Studies (I so hated Business Studies)
Civil Service strike so Mum and my brother off work.
Just an ordinary day for me
Phoned Sam for about 6 minutes

Watched Kenny Everett


From the 'Top Pop Scene' album I thought I would feature tonight the pin up photographs. How disappointing there were only 3!

Lyn Paul


She taught the world to sing in perfect harmony (she missed me in that one!) as part of the New Seekers. I remember her and the New Seekers in the Eurovision Song Contest with 'I'll beg steal or borrow'


It is a nice song But this is the one that became the fizzy drink song

Tony Orlando and Dawn

What a cheesy moustache!! Most famous this guy is for tying a yellow ribbon around an old oak tree, which today has symbolised across the world when we are missing folk in war. It may have have been mentioned on here before but I had concert tickets to see Tony & Dawn, the night before the concert I dreamt it was cancelled.... lo and behold it was cancelled !! OMG he looks and sounds like a pub singer here !!

The Pearls


I very vaguely recognise the gappy toothed gal but that is it. Any help out there???


ending with some Kenny with his Bee Gees kit!!!

Tony Orlando look a lot like that magician in the states so popular. I can't remember his name--not one of those Zeigfried and Roy folks--oh . . .whatshisname? Dangnabit! Now I won't be able to sleep. Oh well.

Note: please insert "in the 70's" after "that magician in the States so popular". Thank you. [Note to self: don't try your hand again as a production editor in a publishing company.]

70steen - I always know what you're talking about. It's that specific kind of office-speak that Dp doesn't understand... it's not typos. Sheesh.

Yes myra.. good luck with the move.

DiddyP... be nice now, or I'll have to call that Dr. Marcus Welby again.
