The blog is going through a bit of a Memorabilia phase at the moment.  There is always plenty of fascinating history to enjoy after five decades of a distinguished career.

My personal friends Sheila and Donald are the most fab and loyal of fans. Here’s their response to Pieter’s current series of videos…

“JUST TUNED INTO THE BLOG ABOUT ST DAVID’S HALL IN 1985 – WE WERE THERE!! IN THE FRONT ROW  …AFTER QUEUEING ALL NIGHT… AND YOU CAN SEE DONALD GIVING HER THE FLOWERS WHICH, SOMEHOW OR OTHER, WE BROUGHT ALL THE WAY TO CARDIFF FROM THE MIDLANDS.

AND YOU CAN SEE THEM ALL THE TIME ON THE VIDEO – NOW YOU CAN’T GET ANY MORE FAMOUS FLOWERS THAN  THAT!!

IT REMINDS ME A BIT OF PETER KAY – FLOWERS – BLUE RIBBONS  ETC; ETC;  WE LIKED HIM AND HIS GARLIC BREAD!!

IN THE VIDEO OF DSB OPENING THE INTERNATIONAL ARENA IN CARDIFF, A FEW YEARS LATER, DONALD’S FACE AND MINE ARE SHOWN (OH GOODNESS, WHAT FAME!!!)  IT WAS A WONDERFUL NIGHT-

ALAN ,ONE OF THE GUYS WHO ALWAYS BAKED HER A CAKE, BROUGHT ONE FOR US  (A GROUP OF US) AND ALSO A BOTTLE OF CHAMPAGNE AND WE REALLY HAD A PARTY – YOU MIGHT SAY THAT WE GOT THE PARTY STARTED THEN!!”

What happy memories! I met Alan the Cake Man at Christie’s reception. But haven’t seen him since then. Does anybody know how he is? For years he presented Shirley with a beautiful home-made and decorated cake. They went down a treat backstage after the show!
