"I've sent the film clip to Alan Middleton who was there at the time. He's 94 years old now but his mind is a sharp as a wire first string. I can remember a few of the faces but he will be able to name them all. He lives in Norfolk so we…"

" I added the videos to our player and ..... I love it.  Hey Tony, 1970s...  No bike thefts in the 1970s? By that time I had a 1965 Mini van love mobile, and nobody would have wanted to steal that either ! Thanks Brett."

"Wow, what a collection of interesting instruments and people able to play in cold weather. The audience has elected to keep wearing their outdoor coats. It must have been freezing in that building. Even colder than outside (there was sun outdoors)."
