Re: Long Awaited Unseen Photos

Five more photographs uploaded today. Bernie will tell us which pantomime is represented by the nice picture of Ruby all dressed in stage clothes. Two of the new park shots were obviously taken at the same time as the one used on the label of the President LP and CD, and the celebration of Ruby and ...

Re: The Return of the Roses

Thank you Bernie. In view of the mild weather, and that we haven't had the roses for a while, I thought I would let them grow again on the Home Page.

Re: New Home Page

Well doesn't time fly! Here we are a year later and so it is time to bring up the Christmas Home Page. A change of computer plus having to learn Windows 10, and encountering a few problems on the way, meant that for a few hours there was no top picture! :( But I have finally got it sorted, so here i...

It's Bernie's birthday today!

Happy Birthday Bernie! They do seem to keep coming round more quickly don't they? At any rate, I seem to be catching you up!

Good on you, and many more to come!

Re: Rubys Fontana Records

The remaining four songs that were only released as singles are now in the library. "I Can't Get You Out of My Heart" coupled with "Paper Mansions" was released in May 1967, and both of these songs are really lovely and sung beautifully by Ruby. I have always thought that if the first one had been r...

Sounds of the 50s BBC Radio 2

Typical! I was idly looking through the radio section of the Radio Times this morning and discovered that at 10.00 pm on Radio 2 on Monday evenings they have been running a series called Sounds of the 50s by Leo Green. Only this week was the last of 10 episodes. Has anyone been listening, because su...

Re: Memory Lane

Just grabbed a quick moment before going on holiday to have a listen to bayfm using the Listen Again feature. The programme for Sunday 19th July is now there and Ruby sings at about 1 hour 35 minutes into the session, with the dedication to Bernie following. She sings one of my favourite songs from ...

Re: Ruby radio Plays

Bernie has alerted me to the information that Colin played and talked about Ruby on his programme yesterday. I have just had a listen via the catch-up service and it is very good. He talks not just about Ruby but also Bernie and plays one of their favourite recordings as well as one by Ruby. If you ...

Re: Memory Lane this afternoon (Sunday)

Thank you Nick, I will have try at Listen Again at the end of the week. Thank you so much for helping to keep Ruby's lovely voice alive on the air.

I also via this Forum would like to send you my best wishes for your recovery from your recent operation.

Re: Lucky Star

Thank you Brian for letting me wallow in nostalgia! I was an avid watcher of Jack Payne's "Off the Record" and I think I remember that it was on a Monday evening. Being BBC I was able to watch it and since it featured a good selection of what was popular, my mum and dad were fans of the programme to...

Re: Lucky Star

Your post just above gave me the idea that we know the Radio Times has been archived, so I wondered if I could find the radio show that we have the recording from. I searched on Ruby's name, and selected the Light Programme and the Home Service, but I couldn't find anything that looked promising for...

Re: Lucky Star

Hello again, Brian. John, it was in fact thanks to Brian that we have a recording of "Lucky Star". It was copied from a recording made by a friend of his from the BBC. We think the announcer might have been Paul Carpenter in which case it may well have been a recording of the radio broadcast of the ...
