  1. FYI, BB, the current download system is working fine for me. (Had a spot of trouble in the past.) I love so many of the tracks and comps. Long walks are now my hobby and as an owner of one of the last iPod Nanos on earth, things between you and I are wonderful. Many thanks!

    1. Hi Jimo.
      A morning walk listening to music make a great start to the day. (I also have an old iPod Nano, its in the archive of devices I use to listen to music with along with my tape deck, Nakamichi cassette player and MD Player... Ahh , the memories)


  2. Thanks for another outstanding comp in this series. I remember hating all the manufactured "teen idols", heavy orchestration and sweet sounding choruses that were starting to become popular. Thank goodness there was enough good stuff to overcome it. ha ha

    1. Hi hotrodmike.
      I was surprised by this series of sounds from 1961. So many great tracks and very engaging sounds. Enjoy this one and others that are to come.


  3. Ahhhh I was 10 and heard these on the Beeb.

    1. Hi lemonflag.
      Ahhh, The memories. Brings a tear to my eyes...
