WEDNESDAY CLUB - Home of the Brave
|Pic taken by Flycasual's Dad in Law, well done Sir!|
Where did it all start, when did I begin to love music. Well the first piece of music that really hit me was the Dam Busters March. I would listen patiently every Saturday morning to Children's favourites. It was a programme that kids sent in their requests.
There were many favourite at that time. Nelly the Elephant, Sparky's Magic Piano, The Little White Bull, There once was an Ugly Duckling. I loved them all, but my absolute favourite was the Dam Busters March, I could not get enough.
I loved the film also and it is still one of my favourites. I was delighted to hear there is a planned re-make with Peter Jackson chosen as the director. It is on hold at the moment, but 10 scale model Lancasters have already been built. So it looks as if the project could happen. I hope so.
It was interesting that a black Labrador in the original film that belonged to Wing Commander Guy Gibson was called Nigger which was acceptable in these days. Later copies of the film had the name dubbed over to Trigger so as to not offend anybody watching the movie.
It is fitting I did this, as last week was the 70 anniversary of that daring raid that cost so many lives of these brave airmen. I dedicate this post to these brave souls.
What was the first record that got you on to your musical path to glory..
