I’ve been trying to ration myself on the number of these I do, but this one just popped into my head, and as it’s less than three minutes in length I thought maybe you’d forgive another visit into the ‘30s.

Harry Roy, Minnie, and when she lost it!


It was, as I understand, regarded as very risqué in the 1930s.

Hi,

Anyone remember Roy Buchanan's Sweet Dreams from the album Buch and the Snake Stretchers.

Always one of my favourite guitarists, - I've just enjoyed it again on UTube

Stay Safe

Kind regards

17 years old sitting in a Rolls Royce that came in for repair listening to Roger Whittaker on the 8 track because the guy was old and did not have the usual Who, Floyd etc, but I have had stayed listening to him and still to this day the song Dirty Old Town just takes me right back "kissed a girl by the factory wall", music all kinds just takes you back all those great girls our Pet, Cilla, Lulu, and Dusty still getting radio play here in the US, most days I listen to Pandora on my phone or the putter
Wow, 8 track stereo in cars takes me back too! Also those new fangled small cassette things that took over music in cars. I worked in a garage, P J Evans and the rollers had the little cassette players and yes, as Bob said Sinatra and Rat Pack and Dino were the regulars in those cars.
