    and I have now started doing requests.

    at Frank’s insistence, here’s one of Rattler.

    Bill will note that I have increased the nastiness, just for him.

    Fopund out some more trivia from Ch 7’s early days – one of the stars of Spotlight was one Reg Whiteman, who was a founding member of the WA Ballet, but of cousre was a very intimate friend of Fat Cat :-)

    Reg Whiteman, who was a founding member of the WA Ballet, is well known to TV insiders for his long association with Fatcat.

      Does TVW 7 actually still have anything of an archival nature, I wonder? They ought release DVDs of nostalgic programs, assuming they could get all the necessary clearances. Imagine the potential – “Spellbound”, “Reach For The Stars”, “Children’s Channel Seven” .. who DOESN’T remember the historic episode where Trina left and Sandy picked up the reins? Enough to make you cry!

        I believe that a lot of the stuff is now in the Battye Library and apart from that compile episode of Spellbound, there are no complete episodes of Spellbound – re Children’s Channel 7, that was live to air each days, ad wasn’t recorded, except for some filmed excerpts.

        I recommend you ask on the blog, or maybe if Brett Treasure is reading this he may suggest to Seven to do another series of programs dedicated to repeating old Seven Shows- especially local ones which we TWOPers may record for research purposes.

        Check out the pic of Sandy in the Then and Now page taken in2008 – she hasn’t changed much at all – she was only 16 when she started in 1971 and she was a Salvo, as I rember they showed her wedding on the News and was dressed in a Salvo uniform

    Found this about a Yorkie Album which features amongst other things a “Recreation” og one of Yorkie’s Crzy Nights.

    I remember doing a recording session there with Lionel Yorke “YORKIE” (who I was managing at the time) for a record album including a live recreation in the studio of a “Yorkie’s Krazy Nite”, which was made so very famous at the Floreat Hotel.

      Speaking of Yorkie, here is his opening theme as song by the original performer (Yorkie sang over it) Matt Monro.

      Note this is a live version.

    I have noticed that, as time has passed, these little tweets have been losing their parochial flavour and becoming more international. This makes me suspect that they are nicking soem of their content from elsewhere. perhaps just adding the word ‘Aussie’ here and there to make us think it is original.

            it is excellent material. I apologize unreservedly for suggesting that it may be too funny to have been written in Perth.

            my personal favourite was the West Bank riot that should have read Bank West riot.
