Thursday night in the univeristy bar/TV room, "Top of the Pops", "It's a Square World" ( Michael Bentine) and "Man from Uncle" drew the crowds. No-one ever accused us of being intellectuals.

Kef, Hannah Gordon was my wife next door and it was John Alderton fresh from 'Please Sir'.

As some of you actually remember the Ping Wings and are all the same age as me (27), were any of you also a member of the Tingha and Tuckah club, with Auntie Jean (from Australia) - they sent you a mini boomerang when you joined?  It was on around the same time as Sharrie Lewis and Lamb Chop ....

Verdun i've just come in from an evening out. I won't sleep now will be thinking of both songs  will probably mix  them up lol  Think i'm a bit younger than all of you , haven't had my 21st yet    

Hi Sara 4. Having already thanked you for the correct name of the Ping WIngs, I'm going to add another thanks for mentioning the Tingha and Tucker Club. I had completely forgotten about them until I read your last post. I had a real life Auntie Jean and remember me and my cousins driving her mad by saying "Hello, Auntie Jean" in our Tingha and Tucker voices and collapsing into giggles every time we saw her (which was at leat 4 times a day, as she lived opposite). I think we kept it up for months.

Rag Trade.Sue...was that Reg Varney?

Hi Gilly, yes and Sheila Hancock and Barbara Windsor and others I cant remember. Whew, 1961, that was a long time ago!

GillyL

Was it really 1961? can,t think how I remembered that I would only have been 5.Was the Rag Trade the one where someone shouted "everybody out"?

How about Emergengy Ward Ten? with Richard Chamberlain I think.

Sara 4

Tamarix and Kef, Thank God ... like the ping wings I thought Tingha and Tucker may never have existed, because nobody else ever seemed to have heard of them.  Did you both live in the South East at the time?  Your poor Auntie Jean, she must have been very patient.

KEF

Sara4 No we were in Yorkshire. I think we just had BBC & ITV at that time.

What about Dr. Finley's casebook, with Janet.

Apparently there was a second version of the Rag Trade between 1977 and 1978, with a different cast, didn't see that though.
