I never thought I would get excited about Morris Dancing. One of my weird aims is to locate more missing footage of Noel's Lucky Numbers than anyone else.... not perhaps that onerous a task as apart from the ubiquitous Mary Tamm footage, not much else has ever come up (although my sources tell me there's a Betamax off-air of a bit of an episode - mainly an OB link - is in a museum in Cambridgeshire. Seriously.) Yes, this upload is from a wiped show of Noel's Lucky Numbers, which for those of you who have zero clue as to what I'm on aboot, was a vehicle* for the BBC's bouncy broadcasting behemoth Noel Edmonds, and involved phone-ins, hence the title. Anyroad, this wee bit off of air is The Throstle's Nest and Carlisle Morris performing at the very end of Noel's Lucky Numbers from 31/01/1979. www.youtube.com/watch?v=ydibyJ5be1M (*not a helicopter.)

Well, in case you think I've been quiet this year - which is sort of true - I thought I'd list as many of my youtube 'discoveries' from 2022. ....and then I checked something and I hadn't done a list of stuff since 2019 - so here's all the viewable discoveries from 2020, 2021 and 2022. A few of these were known about and a few aren't missing in the strictest sense of the word - plus there may be a few repeats. (But hey, we all like repeats don't we?) I'm also including things in the Huntley Archive that are viewable online.
There's all sorts of stuff. Think of it as Christmas presents; they'll be stuff below that none of you will want to see or listen to, ever. Likewise, there should be some enjoyable items. It hasn't been the most fantastic few years for youtube finds, but.... there's a couple of good ones, I think.... Honestly, if even one of you like ANY of these I'll be happy. Note THESE ARE JUST YOUTUBE FINDS AND THE LIKE AND NOT DISCOVERIES IN ARCHIVES.
OF COURSE, HUGE THANKS TO THE UPLOADERS OF THE MATERIAL!
