Slightly weird one here.
Just been enjoying the re-released 2nd and 3rd BBC series of M&W fron the late 60's/ early 70's (sorry to our US mudcatter brethren, this will mean nothing) and while cringeing at the weekly appearence of Kenny Ball & His Jazzmen,I had completely forgotten that there was also a weekly appearence by a vaguely folky (Cod Oirish, Joni Mitchell's Clouds, 49th st bridge song etc) group called The Patersons. There must have been a conflagration in the dressing room after the show as the crimplene waistcoat/bri-nylon shirt static discharged. (Can I say conflagration??? .............No...... "conflagration". [He's looking it up]).
Even Mrs H, who was a M&W addict at the time (and still has the short, fat, hairy legs) can't remember them. Anyone know anything about them? Why did they get a spot on the most succesful telly programme of the day, watched by about half the entire UK population. WHat happened to them???
