Sunday night at the palladium was on when Dad was setting of for his shift at the Chemical plant. I was always fascinated by the tiller girls and the revolving stage.
I too love White Horses and Black Beauty. Family favourites when the sunday roast was cooking. I also used to listen to Caroline/Luxenburg on the transistor radio under the blankets. Really trended people used to follow their charts not radio one. Tony Blackburn and Arnold whilst getting ready for school.
Always had an indoor bathroom, but we did have a second loo outside. Dad used to put a parafin lamp in there in the winter to stop the tank freezing.
Always had blankets and striped flannelette sheets with a candlewick bedspread, no duvets then. Stone hot water bottle, ours a lucazade stopper as the original one had got lost.
