OK, let's start at the beginning with a radio show called Savile's Travels. This began in 1968, and was still on in August 1970 as a one hour show on a Sunday
By February 3rd 1974 Jimmy's show has become the double top ten show followed by Savile's Travels
The same radio show is still on in June 1975 but Jimmy has been making television shows in this time. Regional television shows that is one of them being Savile's Yorkshire travels. Now guys and gals, imagine my delight when I realised that I already had a copy of a BBC4 show called lens Regional Television Life through a local lens' broadcast in July and November 2011, safely tucked away in case someone tries to wipe and or censor it. Better still, it's on you tube so you can all have a watch.
Later on in the show we see the title 'Savile's Yorkshire Travels' and footage of that show including Jimmy's late 60's early 70's campervan and the theme song by Ted Heath, the bandleader not the Prime Minister that is
One episode features three Yorkshire men one of whom I think is Fred Truman so I might be able to date it later, it's certainly the early 70's
Jimmy even manages a visit to his 'beloved Scarborough'
Scroll to about 6 minutes on this
But let's go back to the radio Speakeasy recorded in London which often featured this lady and her group The Settlers
The above is from an article written in 2010.
This is what Cindy had to say about Savile in more recent times.
Cindy-legs is a priest now guys and gals so how's about that then ?
Things certainly were 'different then' Cindy, whose group just so happened to sing the theme song of a children's TV show I warmly remember watching before my tea after school.
Follyfoot remember that folks ?
Grow grow the Lightning tree !
When I first started my blog I mentioned my own personal memories of Jimmy Savile. Listening to his Sunday afternoon double top ten show wherein he awarded you points if you correctly named the singer and the song. He was a crafty bugger though and used to steal your hard earned points back. Here's a reminder of happier times guys and gals. There are more to come
And plenty more here
