Saturday 14 May 1966 was a lively one with Birdcage favourites Chris Farlowe & the Thunderbirds playing an all-nighter. However, that was it for the week, with nothing on Thursday, Friday or Sunday afternoon. That would be the pattern for the next three weekends, after which the club shut down for a month for a ‘refit’.
On Friday 13th (1966) I left my bag on the bus and had to travel to Eastney depot to retrieve it.
Jerry Butler’s “Just for You” entered the R&B charts – I love Jerry Butler – along with Percy Sledge’s biggie. “Shotgun Wedding” was still number one.
