Tony Spins The Discs

Tony Spins The Discs Spinners singer Tony Davis paid a visit to Radio Clatterbridge this morning to do some spinning of his own. Tony, who was a founder member of the legendary folk quartet, got the chance to hear some of his favourite music on Mersey Sounds. He told presenter Ray O'Brien of the group's beginnings in the folk clubs of Liverpool in the late 50s and appearing at The Cavern long before it became a venue for Rock 'n Roll bands. In particular, he recalled how The Quarrymen where kicked off stage because its singer, John Lennon, sang a Chuck Berry song!
