Subject: RE: Obit: Tony Davis ex Spinners (1930-2017)
Something important that Tony and the gang contributed to which hasn't been mentioned yet is the mid-60s BBC children's programme Dance & Skylark which first introduced me to Stan Hugill. The Spinners were presumably there as the popular bait to catch an audience - but their name allowed them to use Stan every week to talk the Real Sailor stuff.
For other things, but especially for that:thank you, Tony.
