Music just isn't the same these

Like you would have thought he had already passed. He seemed to do a lot of voice overs of classic 70's kids programs, like trumpton and other stop start animation of the day for the bbc, would not say he was particularly inspirational in playaway and found his performances disconcerting.

Innocent days?

Remember Captain Pugwash and the Black Pig?

There was already a "Master Mates" and a "Pirate Willy" involved with the series but students invented extra names for the crew and they are now regarded as "Urban Myths". i.e. they are commonly believed but they don't actually exist.

Students at the time invented "Seaman Staines", "Roger the Cabin Boy" and "Master Bates" and co-incidentally the BBC cancelled the series.

The traumatised writer and inventor of the series won considerable damages when it was reported that the reason for the cancellation was the risqué names.

When the BBC cancelled Captain Pugwash was when innocence on Children's TV died a terrible death!

Living more in hope than expectation; and seldom disappointed.

AG Bitter (03/02/17)
AG Light Ale (21/02/17)
AG Mild Ale (02/03/17)
Vienna Lager Batch One (28/03/17)
Coopers Stout Kit + Grain (02/04/17)
Vienna Lager Batch Two (15/06/17)

Watch this space!
