Well, fellow travellers, we come to the last episode, final edition of The 6-25 Show
No road is long with good company and this thread has been blessed with it in abundance! So many Beat Groups and Singers appeared and we now know who they were in more detail from the posts by the following:
Simon McLean, John Poole, Peter Check, Thomas Walsh, Stevej, Kev Hunter, Richard Woods, Paul Carney, Tom McPhillips, John Green, Richard Marple, Alan Turrell ,Paul Rumbol.
Thank you also the thousands around the world who have supported this thread by viewing it - you are important - for it helps to determine if a thread continues or not.
That's enough static out of me, here is
Tuesday 24 September 1963
6.25 - 6.50 pm
Introduced by Jimmy Young. With The Mike Cotton Jazzmen, Woody Allen and The Challengers, The Philip Douglas Trio, Annette and Jo, Lowell Gordon, Bobby Ritch. Contributors Presenter: Jimmy Young Musicians: The Mike Cotton Jazzmen Band: Woody Allen and The Challengers Performers: The Philip Douglas Trio Singers: Annette and Jo Performer: Lowell Gordon Performer: Bobby Ritch Music: Edwin Braben Design: George Djurkovic Production: Albert Stevenson Band: Woody Allen and The Challengers - I am guessing this is a Beat Group? Can anyone find a photo and a biography saying where they are from please? Musicians: The Mike Cotton Jazzmen - familiar to anyone please? Singers: Annette and Jo - the only Annette I know is Annette Andre - is this her with Jo?
There are some very knowledgeable people on this fun, informative and (mostly) friendly forum!
Anyway... The Mike Cotton Jazzmen later went in a more rhythm 'n' blues direction, renaming themselves The Mike Cotton Sound. Two famous ex-members were Dave Rowberry (who went on to replace Alan Price in The Animals) and Jim Rodford (later the bassist with Argent, The Kinks and The Zombies).
