Big Al Whittle History - BBC's 'Singing Together' (279* d) RE: History - BBC's 'Singing Together' 30 Dec 19


No I wasn't haunted by The Streets of Laredo.

I think we liked the American songs. One year, I think Billy Barlow was voted the most popular. We were never asked to vote. We learned not to show our feelings in Lincolnshire. even then we knew no one cared what we liked.

You have to remember thatt generation of little boys started choosing their toy gun cap pistols for Christmas from the Wooly's toy counter round about March.

Also we loved TV westerns - Cisco Kid and pancho, the Range Rider, hopalong Cassidy, Hugh O'Brian in Wyatt Earp, Ward Bond and Seth McCullough in Wagon Train.

Any song that mentioned cowboys was onto a bit of a winner.
