If your hair is greyer than it used to be,
You ache in places you cannot see,
Have wrinkles where they shouldn’t be;
Yet still love the music that used to be;
Why not travel back in time with me –
– Andy Morris, this Saturday and EVERY Saturday at Noon with the GREAT Golden Oldies Show?
Coming up on Saturday:
My first hour will be dedicated to a real mix of favourites from yesteryear and this part of the show is where you can have a request or dedication included. (see below)
This week’s ‘Favourite Year’ is 1966, the year England won the World Cup, we had a General Election, John Lennon claimed the Beatles were ‘more popular than Jesus’ and the mongrel dog ‘Pickles’ found the World Cup after it went missing in London. It was also the year that Jessie Peters married Colin Thomson and it was Colin who emailed me from his home in the Borders and chose 1966 as his ‘Favourite Year’. I’ll be telling you his story during this part of the show and include tracks from the likes of Dusty Springfield, The Lovin’ Spoonful and Chris Farlowe
And finally, we visit once more our ‘Vintage Chart’ by travelling back in time to 1st. November 1964 and the UK’s Top 20 selling Singles that we are now following week on week.
New entries this week include tracks from the Supremes, the Rockin’ Berries and Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders
As usual, you will get the opportunity to enter the ’Spot The TV Show that Grannie Used to Watch’ Competition and be in with a chance to win a rare Radio Saltire Car Sticker and I will also slot in our ‘Children’s Favourite’ and take some of you back to your youth to see if you still remember the words to a song that was always being played on the wireless back then at a time when you were somewhat younger than you are now.
And it all kicks off at noon.
So throw away those walking sticks and zimmers and let’s see you skip the light fandango…..
To remind you – If you would like a request or a dedication – or pick a ‘Favourite Year’ – a year that means something to you, no matter where you are on this ever shrinking globe of ours, just email me 24/7 at firstname.lastname@example.org
