There used to be a Hot Dog company in Brum called Ted's Ot Dogs with barrows at various sites around the city. Right now you're thinking what has this got to do with the Hipp' ? Well the owner of Ted's was one Ted Westley, who also played trombone in the orchestra and was the Birmingham Rep for the Musicians Union. He lived in Broadway and at one time drove a Honda S800. He once ran out of petrol and put paraffin in the tank, it ran but clouds of smoke poured from the exhaust.
