    Number One on the day you were born

    Post by Stockport Ram on Thu 29 Jun 2017, 6:41 am

    The title says it all really.

    A bit of light relief in the two and a bit weeks pre Macclesfield.


    Mine was "I can't get no satisfaction" by The Rolling Stones.

    Quite apt reall, for a Derby fan.



    What was Top of the Pops on the day you first appeared?

    I was born to the sounds of Eddie Calvert - Oh Mein Papa. Fortunately this didn't affect my taste for music.

    On my 18th birthday it was Chicory Tip - Son of My Father which also didn't turn me away from good music. (might our musical tastes be a subject for a thread of its own? - mine are varied but with a preference for Motown, Soul and R&B from the 60s and 70s.........)

    When I was born there was no British charts as such (They started in 1952) but relied the American Billboard Magazine and topping their nominations on the day I was born was Dance Ballerina Dance by Vaughn Monroe. Sorry The later 50's and 60's were my formative music years.

    Don't think that Britain was into hit parades when I was hatched.
    This is the US number one on that auspicious day.

    Like Sawley I was also born before the British charts existed. However, at #1 on the American Billboard chart for June 1950 was The Third Man Theme (aka The Harry Lime Theme), composed and played by a Viennese zither player called Anton Karas.

    It's the soundtrack music from the famous 1949 film noir The Third Man starring Orson Wells. It's a great film but it had absolutely no impact on my taste in music.

    like rjrules, it was Guy Mitchell, who was singing the blues. I had no idea about chart music for years. My parents were into classical music, so we rarely got to listen to the "Light Programme", as it was called, and it was years before Radio 1 arrived.

    We did get there, and got ma and pa listening to more contemporary music.

    In my early teens, which is when our musical tastes are decided, it was Gary Glitter, Bay City Rollers, David Cassidy, Sweet and the like. I jumped ship, and started with Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, Genesis, Yes, King Crimson, ELP and co. Most of them were classically trained, could play their own instruments, write their own music and perform it. I even got dad liking Emerson, Lake and Palmer!

    None of this has owt to do with the Rams. Don't know how that started!

    Like you Dave, with the exception that it was mainly Big Band Music played on the owd fella's 78s. I did, however, have the fortune of having an 8 year older brother who was into folk and blues. All his mates had parents who refused to have top of the pops on the TV so they would all be round ours on a Thursday evening. I also knew the delights, from an early age, of listening to Radio Luxembourg. That and the odd TV bit showing the early Motown singers. Aged 11, a lot of my friends were my colleagues from the Rowing Club and they were all 3 to 5 years older and into Stax, Atlantic, Volt etc. That was when my affinity with Soul Music really took off. I was tall for my age and from 13 went everywhere with them. Became good at dancing and, at 14, did my first gig. There followed years of sets at the Rowing Club and, in the main, sets at youth clubs and church halls but there were also gigs I did myself with a guest doing a set rather than the other way round. Stopped DJing in my late 20s. Who would have thought that I would start again in my 60s? I average a gig a month as DJ and go to 2 others as customer/dancer. Age is no more than a number.

    Keep The Faith my friends.

    Love the "age is no more than a number" line!

    My switch to "real music" happened during "wet play" at school. Confined to the classroom trying to not get caught playing cards for money, a friend called Anthony Bass turned up with a reel-to-reel tape recorder and a load of heavy metal tapes which he played from within a cupboard so it was easy to hide if a "beak" came in. besides, the beak was more interested in catching the card-sharps - apart from the fact that we had a duplicate set of cards with charity fund-raising details on them! The beak couldn't prove a thing, but was puzzled by the muffled music sounds in the background!
