People in the UK may have been slow to appreciate that an increasing number of hits were being written by women, because ‘You were on my mind’ and other female-penned songs were covered by male singers and groups – like the Searchers doing ‘When you walk in the room’.

Mick McManus is indeed listed as a guest on ‘Ready Steady Go’ at imdb.

When artistes were unavailable to perform their hits, RSG had more imaginative ways of presenting their songs than wheeling out Pans People. For example:

Thanks, Graham.

I certainly know of The Drifters. I would guess they are still going and possibly in more than one spin-off version from the original group.

I grew up in the Midlands. Pretty sure that Farlowe owned and ran a country pub near Rugby for a short while in the '70s.

Only ever saw Sutch on tv and that was mainly when he was promoting The Monster Raving Loony party. Seeing him live must have been wonderful!

Someone else very different from that era but still a true entertainer whom I always wanted to go and see perform was Acker Bilk. Sadly I didn't and now the chance is gone.

Best regards,

OneRound

Nick - the Stones and Cathy McGowan miming to Sonny and Cher's 'I Got You, Babe' is a classic find. I salute you, sir.

Best regards,

A salute to Nick from me as well- that was a terrific find.
Cathy McGowan must have dome some acting prior to her TV work, for she had Cher's mannerisms off to a T.
A reminder of when 'pop' music did not take itself so seriously.

I was very surprised to see the Stones doing comedy. Great find.

Yes indeed, Nick - fabulous!

This one is a bit later than 1961, but for me just about sums up the 1960's...well, my Sixties at any rate!

Del Shannon was in the charts with the hit below in 1961 and I have posted it for several reasons. Firstly, it's an excellent song in a pop-song sort of way. Secondly, it always seemed to be playing at the fairground, whether I visited in the 60s, 70s or 80s (I haven't been to a fairground since the 80s!). Thirdly, I believe Del was just about to join the truly excellent Travelling Wilburys when he sadly died. In his honour, they recorded Run Away.

Thats a real classic by Del Shannon, Julie. I liked his music very much. Sadly enough, as you most probably know, he took his own life after suffering for some time with depression.

A high quality version of that week's number 1 ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7e4JXwd7XMo

A poignant shot at the end showing the NME chart with the date of the murder.
