when I could not get back on the board I thought of so many things from being young in Maryhill every Sunday it was chapel then mammy makin a big Sunday dinner my brothers away to play fitbaw wae their pals ,then they would come home for dinner ,soup made with a bone,and a piece of meat which was then baked,and served with roasted totties with peas then on went the radio tuned in to Family Favourites ,I would get all excited when they would say that some one from America was asking for a certain song little did I know I might be one those expats ,I loved to listen to " The Dream of Olwin "and "Oh my beloved Father " when I heard a young woman sing it on one of Andre Boccellies shows from Tuscany I cried as it made me think of my days at home [must be ma age]

Hi Wee Mags,
I saw that same program, a young Italian woman singing "Oh my beloved father" and I felt the very same as you when I watched and listened to the performance. It really got to me, and my eyes were wet too, the passion that wee lassie was putting into the song, and the high notes she was reaching just got me right here (heart). I would like to have recorded that program, but was too late when I thought about it. rolleyes.gif

Rab, what memories these pictures brought to mind. Some I had clean forgotten about but whenever I saw them again I could remember, I was even singing along some of their signature tunes. I remember being allowed to stay up late, to 9 o'clock on Thursday nights to hear I.T.M.A. with Tommy Handley. Molly Weir was in it too. That was during the war, I'm dating myself here ohmy.gif

One of my favourite times was when I would come down stairs on a Saturday morning and the house was already clean, with a roaring fire going and the wireless tuned to Children' Requests. I don't know the name of the theme but I recognize it anywhere.

That website is great, Dexter. A lot of the songs I had totally forgotten about, but the moment I read their titles, I could remember all the words!

I loved a Sunday, when we came back from churchand Family Favourites would be on. It was followed by Billy Cotton and his Band Show. He would yell, "Wakey, wa -a - key!" and then the show would start. And do you remember the Clitheroe Kid? I really loved his shows.
