Pete Maclaine: “I wrote Yes I Do in a Merseybeat style and it was voted a Miss largely because Kenneth Williams didn’t like it. Keith Fordyce thought it was okay. We knew it was going to be on and we were working in Prestatyn that night. We ran round the corner and knocked on the first house, explained who we were and that our record was going to be played. They asked us what it was called and they told us that it had already been on and had been voted a Miss, so we went to the pub.”

Two Philips salesmen and Don Moss did a Juke Box Jury at Catford School. They voted The Verdict Is Guilty by Susan Maughan a hit (of course).
