  1. Re: The mostly ghastly and irritating bands/singers you remember or were jealous of

    Absolutely, Rock, metal and prog was amazing in the 70's (and still is). Yep that's the tripe I was on about, cruddy acts like those you list and many more.

    Female singers-wise none of those you...
  2. 'Duties' at later Secondary School (6th form)

    Following on from the 'Later years at Secondary school' thread, made me remember duties that were expected from the 6th form.

    I discovered that, as senior pupils, we were supposed to police the...

    Re: Older years at Secondary School

    Ah yes the 6th form. Despite my total disaster at Grammar school, my father wheedled me in to the local comp when we moved area. I was still reeling after spending 5 years on my own, and with all...
  4. The mostly ghastly and irritating bands/singers you remember or were jealous of

    Lets be nice and negative for a change. Back in the 70's I used to moan and complain that us boys had no-one to ogle and lust after. You girls had a selection of meaningless characters including...

    Re: Watching Football scores on Teletext

    And me. Every Saturday afternoon, TV would be on teletext or oracle from 3 onwards. Yes games started at 3pm in those days, not like the TV slanted games nowadays.

    I used to ring up the club and...

    Re: Breaking up for the summer holidays

    Yes I was born in 1958 also. July actually. I left that horrible dump before my 16th birthday, so I was 15. Have to say, our experiences were rather similar.

    In addition I spent 30 years in...

    Re: Breaking up for the summer holidays

    I also left school before the GCE's were over as I was too stupid to do them all. As I detailed in another thread, walking out of that damn grammar school was like getting released from jail. I'd...

    Re: Keeping in touch with old school friends

    I can safely say that I haven't and wouldn't and didn't keep in touch with anyone after my awful schooldays. In fact no-one even recognises me, let alone remembers me. I even bought a house from a...

    Re: 25 Years since leaving school

    And you know what ? Nobody even noticed I was gone. Indeed there is a photograph of boys in Didcot House from 1973, which was at one time, hanging around on the 'net. Can't find it now, but anyway,...

    Re: Drama lessons

    Same here. I made myself as small and inconsequential as possible, and if necessary pretended to be ill if I was in any drama production, which were rare at the schools I attended.

    Appaling drivel, and the film was just as bad. The worst thing about this sorry excuse for a nepotistic sitcom is the tedious repeats the pathetic Beeb keep insisting on showing.:mad:

    Sorry agfagaevar, I have also posted this in the 'Gone but not Forgotten' section, and didn't see this until after I'd posted.
