Hi everyone, I listen to The Wireless, because it plays my type of music. It not on DAB but it is on things like Alexa and Google, on an app called WirelessClub and online wirelessclub.co.uk. The Saturday Club from 7am to 10am is all sixties and they are looking for listeners to write in with requests, especially for unusual songs from the 60s, And memories of the 60s like dance venues,mit’s like the old Radio 2 Brian Mathews, Sound of The Sixties, I’ve written in a few times and they always play my requests.

Not the Who song, but the recently released Michael Caine DVD, about the 60s era. Have got this and have watched it twice, plenty of music through it as well, plus Michael Caine movie clips, acts like Beatles, Stones, Who, Marianne Faithful and Twiggy, plus Mary Quant plus others are in it, its 1hr and 20 minutes long but a good bio-doc type film only on DVD though.
I enjoy listening to the Motown sound, in either CD or Vinyl, and have some favourites from that sixties period, also have seen Motown the Musical 3 times in London, mind you on an organised coach trip lots of memory's in that.
My brother brought an old tea chest home and with a piece of thick cord and a broom handle, made a fantastic bass. You had to put your foot on it to steady it while stretching the cord attached to the middle of the tea chest and broomstick. Seems they were all the rage then. Lonnie Donegan, Ken Colyer, made great foot stomping music. Wonder how many people made home- made musical instruments. I was a very talented child, when I was two, I played on the linoleum!
