Wow.

Thank you!

My Aunt Ros, was right, and so was my memory, because I was sure she said it was at the Accy Con.

I was away when you posted this, and only saw it whilst noseying through your old posts, after Eric said he'd been talking to you.

Thank you so much.

Re: Rock around the Clock, Bill Haley

Sure it was before then, I used to help out at the Paladium and we took out the first four rows from the stalls to allow dancing, that was the only way the licencing comittee would allow us to show it. (fire regs and suchlike) saved the place from bingo for a while.
