    Re: Fox, They of "Only You Can"

    The only thing I know about Fox was the song 'Electro People' which was the TV theme to the Kenny Everett Television Show at the start of the '80s - and which I listened to just a couple of days ago...

    Re: Old Programmes

    One of the great things about a lot of the old shows, especially the dramas and comedies is that they are available on DVD. Challenge often fills in a few memories with old gameshows, but there are...

    Re: Silly Songs

    I used to like novelty records when I first started listening to the charts.

    I must admit I enjoyed 'Pump Up The Bitter' by Star Turn on 45 Pints. It was in the charts at the same time as Harry...

    Re: Vw k70

    The Volkswagen K70 was one of those cars you rarely saw in the UK even when they were new, although I had a Majorette toy version in Turquoise. I recall seeing one parked in the car park of a block...

    One which was all over the radio and the telly in 1983 was 'La Serenissima' by Rondo Veneziano - this was the tune with the animated video of a classical orchestra with featureless chrome faces and...

    Re: My Dads Cars

    When I was a toddler in the early '70s, my dad had a Vauxhall Victor 101 (FC) Estate. He followed that with two Morris Marina Coupes, a white 1.8, then a dark green 1.3 version, then in the early...

    Re: mothers pride bread vans

    I recall seeing Sunblest and Mother's Pride vans, and you sometimes see them in repeats of old TV shows and films. They often seem to be the large Commer Walk-through type vans.

    Re: Still Open All Hours - 2013 Xmas Special

    'Open All Hours' is my favourite sitcom. I have every series on DVD and I've even visited the street in Doncaster where it was filmed, so when I first heard that it was coming back, I was sceptical,...

    Re: Not With A Bang

    I remember 'Not With A Bang' very well - I've mentioned it a couple of times on this very forum. I think it was broadcast in 1990, I bought the Rod Argent theme tune to it on 7" vinyl at the time....

    Re: National Anthem suggestions

    I'd like to put in a word for 'Little Britain' by Dreadzone (from 1995). It's patriotic, and there are two versions - with or without lyrics/vocals.

    On this subject, it's always interesting when you hear something in a shop which is appropriate in some way - I was at college in Colchester from '92 to '94, so there are some songs which will always...

    Re: TV series's that flopped

    I've got the 'Albion Market' theme somewhere. Quite nice in a sort of downbeat way.

    Wasn't 'Castles' the soap that was set half in Britain and half in Australia? - Or was that something else?

    Most Diesels still have a 'D' somewhere in their badge. My own car has a Diesel injection engine, and an 'HDi' badge on the back. It's also the turbo sport model, but if all this was on the badge, it...
