At our February meeting, Clive Rudd took us on a nostalgic musical ride – dipping into the pop culture of the late 1950’s to the Beatles era. (It has to be said that some of us are too young to remember the early stuff!). Our genial host sang and accompanied his songs on guitar with a little backing and amplification. He reminded us of some of the theme tunes from early television programmes such as “Twizzle”, “Torchy Battery Boy”, “Thunderbirds”, and “Four Feather Falls”. We were a bit hazy on some of these tunes since we only had one member who actually had a television in the fifties.
Two “volunteer” Mexicans were picked to play the maracas and tambourine to accompany Clive singing “Speedy Gonzalez”. He also gave them authentic sombreros to wear, but even these touches didn’t improve their performance which was hilariously mistimed. He continued through his repertoire – wisely he didn’t choose any more volunteers.
We all swayed and sang along to well- known old favourites such as “King of the Road”, “Magic Moments”, “Sweet Caroline”, and “Any Dream Will Do”. Clive explained that he became a member of the Beatles Fan Club when he was 11 years old, and was given his first guitar at that time. He also entertained us with some clever jokes – all of them clean!
We ended the evening singing “Amarillo”, by which time we were all well into the swing of things.
 
Our next meeting is the A.G.M. on Tuesday 12 March at 7.30pm in the Village Hall. Following the formalities we have “M&S – Don’t Ask Me The Price It’s a Penny” with Sue Floyd.
