Neither cat nor square, Arthur Askey’s standpoint with regards to the pops is probably best described as commonsensical and, of course, humorous. Also on the panel are Jean Metcalfe and Bill Crozier, two experts on discs who are usually at opposing ends of the Family Favourites link.

I watched the recording of this programme, school holiday, we were transferred to the front row for the second of the two programme recordings (they recorded two together) and I was “seen” in the audience when the programme was broadcast. Still have the entry ticket! A long time ago!
