17: Novelty Records - They Will Never Wear Off!*
Bibb talked about his own personal serendipity in Vol
15; I've found mine here in Volume 17.
started when bought two albums of novelty records from BBC
DJ David Miller (left). They were called "Hello Children
They were going cheap and contained a couple of songs I vividly
remembered from my youth, plus some I wanted to forget. But
listening to the ones I loved evoked many happy memories.
all the nonsense going on about the Crazy Frog I though I
could tie them together, interview David (as he is an expert)
and also Ben (right) from Ben's Record Collectors (are originals
worth a fortune?) throw in a few vox pops from around Guildford
and then present it to you.
icing on the cake, that moment when you know life is going
your way, was when Nick asked me to make a poster for his
mate, Adrian Zag (left), who was releasing a novelty song
about Jerzy Dudek. My mouth dropped open wide. My heart sang
like one of the three tenors. Unbelievable! Truly astounding.
So close and not that far! The final interview was in the
here it is. A feature based on a couple of cheap CD's, quality
guests, a new song about a goalkeeper caled Dudek (right)
and a load of luck. I hope you enjoy listening as much as
I did making it.
