"How could you spend an evening doing intros without including*************?" said she. I had no answer so I promised to add it, so here it is the best intro ever according to STMBO so who are us mere mortals to argue?:

PS [She's lovely really :-D ]
Mick did you not try number one in the "light the blue touchpaper and retire" book of witty replies?
Pictures of Matchstick Men the best intro ever :?:
It isn't even the best Status Quo Intro :!: :-D

Alex Harvey with some crazy Glasgow blues, with some acknowledgement to the Chigago Blues and "Hoochie Coochie Man" written by Willy Dixon and recorded by Muddy Waters. The Album "Framed" is the Alex Harvey band in the raw, and a classic for that.

another excellent intro

You wont believe it Mick, but one of the Pickled Egg's theme nights from some time ago was....

Not Hoffnung's first appearance Steve, white exec put it forward in this "theme" night at the Pickled Egg....

PE-Jukebox-10 Mildly Amusing "songs"

I launched it with a bit of Flanders and Swann doing "The Gas Man Cometh" mild amusement at its best!

Any more offerings?
I even posted up Val Doonican doing Delaney's Donkey! The PE Jukebox caters for all tastes!
..and one of Val's claims to fame. He knocked "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" off the top of the album charts.

Why I remember this I have no idea. Cream did a double album called "Wheels of Fire" with classics like crossroads, spoonful, white room, etc. They mustn't have had enough good stuff so they included this, and to this day I still recall the lyrics.....

Pressed Rat and Warthog have closed down their shop
They didnt want to it was all they had got
Selling atonal apples, amplified heat
and Pressed Rat's collection of dog legs and feet......

I simply don't believe it!!! I went through the whole theme and rediscovered The Bricklayer's Lament which I remember being a firm favourite on the Saturday morning Children's Choice radio that I grew up with. I was surprised not to see Paddy McGinty's Goat in there as Delaney's Donkey was, so time to put that right:

One of the first records we got when the new radiogram arrived was one of those "World of......" series the "World of Val Doonican"

For the younger FCF members....this is a radiogram

I'm sure you had some of the comedy thread in the record file Neil (wasn't that model actually called a Stereogram?), and here's another comedy tune from 1965 which had me smiling at the sound of the Leyland diesel familiar to every school boy and girl at the time:



That certainly takes me back!! :-D

As Oliver said "Can I have some More"? Lovely arrangement that, Mantovani was my mum's second favourite to Jim Reeves. :)

We always called it a radiogram, but thats maybe just like calling all radios the "wireless" :-D

We had an HMV large cabinet thing just like that took up half the room. Turntable at one end, radio next, record store, and a bit in the end where we had a reel to reel tape recorder.

The one in the pic is a Marconiphone 4362
