Oh. I thought maybe it was some Presbyterian survival.There was a sketch on Naked Video twenty-odd years ago where there was a newsflash of an imminent nuclear attack and the announcer said 'We will now broadcast the four-minute warning, except for viewers in Scotland who will have their own sports programme.'
'And the next programme is Juke Box Jury except for viewers in Scotland who will have their own sports programme.' I always felt sorry for those viewers in Scotland.What were they being protected from?
KeithS, wasn't Janice on the US record review spot on 'Thank Your Lucky Stars' ?
I remember her giving 'Go go go' by Chuck Berry foive and calling it 'real R&B', but giving 'I'm on fire' by JLL the thumbs down cos it was just the same as 'Great balls of fire' !!!
I hardly ever missed Ready Steady Go and even remember Ready Steady Win with 'new' bands like the Bo Street Runners and others. Re RSG I saw one show and later that night was walking past the East Ham Granada when a taxi pulled up and out popped Dusty Springfield to do a show- wearing the same dress that I'd seen her in earlier on RSG!- Amazing!
Going through my Columbia records and came across this and played it- phew- brought back a fair few memories! Apologies to our cousins around the world- you probably don't realise the significance of this music to us Brits.
