Turning The Tables

Turning The Tables

Turning The Tables Radio Clatterbridge turned the tables on one of its founder members today. Don Farmer was one of the original boys to bring records into the hospital to play to patients. The service eventually became Radio Clatterbridge. Now Don is a patient himself, but we sparked a few memories when we took him a scrap-book of the Port Sunlight Boys Club. Don says the club had no music of its own, so the boys would take the requests and then go home to see who had what. His favourite, incidentally, was Al Jolson’s “Climb Up On My Knee Sonny Boy”. Among the regulars at the club were Frankie Vaughan, who hosted a talent competition there in 1955, and Freddie and the Dreamers.
