Jim Bainbridge -
Scan Tester was a great fan of the Seekers.
One of the last tunes that Scan learned was "Puppet on a String", the Eurovision Song Contest-winning song in 1967 by British singer Sandie Shaw. Of course, as he learned it aurally, he automatically adapted it suit his style and the function that he had in mind for it. He was primarily a pub musician who also played for dancing.
