Johnny Reggae - Don't Get Your Knickers In A Twist / There's A Lot Of It About




Johnathan King produced a record with the title "Johnny Reggae" by the Piglets in 1971 which was a hit in the UK and a number of other countries I was under the impression that this was connected to Jonathan King as at this time he was releasing records on the Bell label, this record has no connection to Jonathan King. The Producer is Philip Swern is this the same person who now produces "Sounds Of The Sixties" on Radio.

I can remember the "Piglets - Johnny Reggae" being on the Juke Box in one of the local pubs one of my friends put the record on 10 times in a row to annoy someone he did not like the person complained to the Landlord that the Juke Box had got stuck and was only playing one record the landlord was on the phone to the Juke Box supplier to report that the Juke Box had got stuck etc when the last of his plays finished and a different record came on, we never saw him in that pub again.

I thought that I had a Fishing Trip booked for today I had a phone call on Friday to tell me that the trip was on Saturday I had to dash round the shops on Friday evening to get some things and do the main shopping on Sunday, I  caught Conger Eels and Dogfish (all returned) only one Cod the target species was caught I always look at the for sale notice board on the way out of the supermarket this advert has been there for some time in various formats the original want was for 6 or more bedrooms and a large garden I do not think there will be any takers.

Manchester United Football Team - United, Manchester United / Manchester United Supporters - Saturday Afternoon




The Penny Farthing Trophy Series consists of 2 records both issued in 1972 and one by Liverpool F.C.
In 1983 I was working nights in Central London and was living in Greenford  one Saturday morning I finished work at 05.15, it was Cup Final day I had a choice of 2 routes one via Harrow Road which would take me through Wembley and the other via the A40M I always used the A40M route as it was shorter and faster this morning was no exception once on the Motorway there were lines of Manchester United Supporters across all three lanes and the hard shoulder walking down the Motorway on their way to Wembley, to get to Wembley they should have been on the Harrow Road which at the point I was passing them was underneath the A40M the Motorway goes to Shepherds Bush and it is quite a walk from there to Wembley, the Harrow Road goes through Wembley.
