    I was a Valdette at the Stoke studios in 1978 and 1979. I appeared in Jack And The Beanstalk in Blythe (Northumberland), West Hartlepool and Barrow-in-Furness.
    In 1984 my wife and I resurected the Valdettes name when we formed a carnival entertaining troupe. The troupe ceased to operate in 2002

    The shops i used were Voltic Records in the Queens Arcade , Beatties Record Department , Goulds who were at the end of Dudley Street and the HMV shop in Cleveland Street . Newy Bros had a little shop on the Penn Road just before Goldthorne Hill ( i used to pick up deleted records from thier bargain bin ) British Home Stores and Woolworths had record departments and sold original stuff besides those horrid Embassy Records covers. I could tell you the story of Embassy records if you had a year to spare they were owned and run as a subsiduary of Oriole Records and eventually owned by CBS records Bet they had a dilemma what to do with all those Embassy master tapes., althouigh they did issue LP`s on the Embassy trademark There was the `Shack` on the Cannock Road which ended up selling Reggae stuff in latter years and there was a shop called Cliffs on the Dudley Road who had a similar operation to the Shack. First 45 i bought was Marion Ryan singing Oh Oh I`m Falling In Love Again c/w Always And Forever on Pye Nixa (1958). Hope that has helped bring back some memories

    Leicestershire, born and bred in Loughborough, I moved away to Buscheid (a small town near Cologne) about 20 years ago. Along with my wife and two children I've been back a few times to show the kids my old haunts. Fishing at Proctors Park, Barrow-Upon-Soar; swimming in the river or the canal; watching the city and visiting old friends, walking in Charnwood Forest, or having a beer at the Navigation Inn, Hathern, simply beautiful. Memories are made of this. If anyone who knows me reads this please feel free to drop me a line, I'd love it
