    Re: Mighty White

    I would never regard bread as being fluffy - it makes it sound as if it's covered in fluff. :(

    Re: Bruce Forsyth and his syrup

    Re: Bruce Forsyth and his syrup

    There is a 1979 episode of Coronation Street on YT where Fred Gee is mocked for wearing a wig in the Rovers - perhaps he would have been treated a lot differently had that episode been in the 1990s...

    Re: Coronavirus... thoughts ..

    The world has changed so much in just the past couple of months due to the pandemic, and our lives have changed so much as a result. I haven't been posting on here as much as I used to, and it is...

    Re: Things you no longer see or hear on TV

    It was something that seemed more than obvious to the average viewer, unless they still were using monochrome TV sets of course. I know that the BBC stopped using BBC COLOUR around the end of 1977 -...

    Re: Watching musicals at the theatre

    As you obviously know, at the moment the theatres (and their Box Offices) are closed due to the coronavirus, and sadly it might mean that visiting the theatre on my birthday this year could be...

    Re: In hindsight

    What I should have said there was: a new programme would refer to decimal currency - a repeat would refer to shillings and sixpences.

    Re: mccain oven chips song

    The advert always remind me of Auf Wiedersehen, Pet, not to mention the Maurice Jones builders on Coronation Street in 1989-1990.

    Funnily enough, I always remembered that it was for Birds Eye...

    Re: farleys rusks

    What were the difference between Farley's Rusks and ordinary biscuits? - the difference between Lego and Duplo, perhaps?

    Re: Anchor butter

    Funnily enough, I was watching the VE Day 75 celebration on BBC One where they sung a vocal version of Swing the Mood and it immediately reminded me of that Anchor Butter advert from the late 1980s...

    Re: Fish & chip crisps

    Didn't the faux newsprint on the packet have French or Latin words on them? - I know that they weren't in English. Also, was it only corner shops that sold them and not mainstream supermarkets?

    Re: Smoking teachers

    I used to think that it was double standards when school rules used to prevent pupils from doing various things, yet the teachers did the same thing in the sanctuary of the staff room, even if they...

    Re: Bruce Forsyth and his syrup

    What was it about male celebrities and the embarrassment of wearing wigs and toupees in the early 1980s? - Brucie "came out" with his on a 1982 Play Your Cards Right (was on YT for a while), but then...

    Re: Mighty White

    Mighty White used to have a bit of product placement on Alf Roberts' Corner Shop wall in the late 1980s and early 1990s - do real life corner shops do that, I wonder?

    Re: Leif Garrett

    I always thought that Leif Garrett was a bit like a Justin Bieber of the late 1970s - I have to admit that I saw a circa 2011...

    Re: Remembering Valentines day

    If you are single, just think of it as being another day - after all, it's not quite Christmas Day, is it? - who cares if no one sends you a card?

    I was just thinking about later on this year when I go away for a few days around my birthday at the end of August - it is difficult this year by virtue of it falling on a Sunday, and the August Bank...

    Hearn did make snooker popular in the 1980s - without him it would have been an underground sport. He was responsible for a lot of eighties names such as Kirk Stevens, Tony Meo, Doug Mountjoy, Drago,...
