In 1965, ‘today’ was a Saturday and the Graham Bond Organisation set an attendance record at the Rendezvous (Oddfellows Hall) supported by the Sons of Man. On Sunday another of Pompey’s finest R&B bands, the J Crow Combo were at Kimbells’ R&B Club. On the same Saturday evening the guests on Juke Box Jury were Val Doonican, Twinkle, Fenella Fielding and Charlie Drake. That was at 5.15 followed by Dr Who and Dixon of Dock Green. If you saw Graham Bond, you missed the Black & White Minstrel Show. However, Match of the Day was on BBC2 at 7 pm so time to see that before nipping out. Pompey weren’t on it but in the old/real Division Two they drew 1-1 with Manchester City at Fratton Park in front of 12,500, with a goal from their ‘crooner’ Cliff Portwood. In the following week over 25,000 saw them draw 0-0 with Wolves in the Cup.
