Looking back, what a load of amateurish junk all those shows were. The hosts were no more than end of pier entertainers who did something to get the attention of television producers.  :evilgrin

I wasnt to keen on max but liked his catchphrase - I wanna tell you a story...  Good idea son.

Max Bygraves - I wanna tell you a story...


There was another entertainer at that time called dave king he didnt last very long.


Few other names you might remember:Bob Monkhouse,Denis Goodwin,Ted Ray and Arthur Askey

The comedians got better as time went on  "THE TWO RONNIES" i thought they were brilliant as a duo act.
But corbett on his own pretty boring.

Do you remember "MONICA ROSE" the cockney girl 4ft 9in that appeared with hughie green in

double your money. Apparently she topped herself,bit about it from WIKI.

Originally a contestant on Double Your Money, Rose was invited to become a hostess on the show by Green, impressed by her cockney charm and manner, and stayed for three years. She later worked on The Sky's the Limit
Rose left show business in 1977 and was admitted to hospital three years later suffering from a nervous breakdown. She married Baptist lay preacher Terry Dunnell in 1982 and settled in Leicester where she worked as a checkout operator in a supermarket.[1] After battling depression, Rose committed suicide by overdosing on antidepressants and tranquillisers in 1994

HUGHIE GREEN went on to compare "OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS" catchprase i mean that most sincerely folks!!

major gimmick / selling point was the infamous "clap-o-meter"



Nevertheless, it was the home audience that decided who the winner of each week was by writing in on postcards. The winning act got to come back as a returning champion of sorts.



Opportunity Knocks intro/outro Thames tv 70s


Acts discovered through the programme include Spike Milligan, Mary Hopkin, Bonnie Langford, Les Dawson, Pam Ayres, Little and Large, Bobby Crush, Peters and Lee, Kelly Brown (later to find fame as "Feels Like I'm In Love" hitmaker Kelly Marie), Lena Zavaroni, Tom O'Connor, Frank Carson, Stan Boardman, Carol Lee Scott (of Grotbags "fame") and Freddie Starr.

Now, have I got this right? Bob Geldoff's wife, forget her name, thought for most of her life that a hymn singining TV presenter, who gave her a hell of a childhood, was her abusive Dad. Jesse something was his name. Then she went a bit off the rails when she found out that the even more despicable Hughie Green was  her real father.

Perhaps my memory is letting me down but that's the story I remember.

Never liked bob geldof,i could never understand what he said,all his words was rolled into one.

Actress Paula Yates, was his wife. she was also the lover of INXS front man Michael Hutchence, she died of an accidental heroin overdose in the year 2000.



She believed her father to be Jess Yates, who was known as "the Bishop" and presented the ITV religious programme Stars On Sunday.
I believe She is the granddaughter of Hughie Green

She was in two programmes Big Breakfast interview where she was always laying on a bed and another
rock  programme called the tube.Both my opinion (crap)

Here she is interviewing ozzy

Ozzy interviewed by Paula Yates on The Tube 1986

Ready Steady Go! or simply RSG! was one of the UK's first rock/pop music TV programmes.
WOW rush home friday nights for RSG, punchline was "The weekend starts here!"

They was all there,all the great performers at that time,the younger generation was rocking,
copying there hair styles and clothes winkle pickers and all that.

THE BEATLES-billy fury, dusty springfield, the animals, cilla black, billy fury, lulu,
georgie flame and the blue flames, the beach boys, gerry and the pacemakers, dave clark.

All the artists above are on this video,fantastic to look back at them and thank god
were still here.

Ah yes, Johnnie Ray, said to never leave his friend's behind.

Top of the Pops was popular during my London bachelor days. Our flat was the only one in the building with ta TV so it was rather crowded with guests on TOTP evenings in the days of short skirts and even shorter cameramen.

We was the first house in the street to have a tv.seemed like they all come to have a look.
there wasnt enough seats so we stood milk crates up on end to sit on.

Nobody knew about the vertical and horizontal adjustments on the back of the set
the picture started rolling round and everybodys head was nodding up and down with it.

Mini skirts were the best fashion creation of the time and then someone invented those passion killing tights. Sublime to the ridiculous.

I suppose I was mod. by inclination rather than conviction, riding a scooter before I bought a car, but didn't join in with the gangs. A group of us were once about to enter the grounds of the Richmond Rugby Club to see the Yardbirds at the Crawdaddy when our way was blocked by a group of youths. 'Hey, you mods. or rockers?' one of them asked. We couldn't help noticing that this idiot and his pals were dressed in leathers and sitting on motorbikes so, naturally, we claimed to be rockers and they let us pass.

The vynyl days 45 rpm.

Flower power with funny brightly flowered shirts,some even wore cow bells round there neck.
looking back Ridiculous,but fitted in at the time,The kids wanted to be with it.



There was pot flying about everywhere.some kids had beatle haircuts and jackets some wore
john lennon glasses.I must say i prefered them days to skinheads or dickheads i should say.

                                             

There is a great radio station you can listen on line  http://www.flowerpowerradio.com/



This is where you will hear the very best music from the very best era of music, the 1950's, 1960's and the 1970's. From Rock 'n' Roll legends like Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly and Gene Vincent, the 1950's come alive.

The Andy Pandy programme was one of the earliest moves by BBC TV to corrupt the morals of the UK.  AP is quite clearly a homosexualist.

From the first LP album of "forbidden music" I bought. Bought it second-hand, still cost me almost three weeks of my pocket money. It was worth it and definitely it wasn't the last. I got banned from the house for playing that at appropriate volume, got moved to the room above the garage: I found freedom and peace of mind thanks to the Rolling Stones!  :evilgrin

At that age my English wasn't good enough to understand the lyrics of Dylan. The Stones' lyrics weren't that demanding. Anyway it was the instrumental part that appealed most to me.
